Casinos Restart Date Passes As Government Fails To Release SOP’s

Everyone knows how important casinos are to the economic welfare of Goa. They play an important role in attracting tourists to Goa’s flashy and thrilling atmosphere. It is no joke that the state has suffered since the pandemic began and the casinos have had to shut down operations. A couple of weeks ago, exciting news from the Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG) came through when they announced that the casinos would be permitted to open from 1 November, provided they functioned at 50 percent capacity while following the standard operating procedure (SOP) dictated by the government.

However, the restart date has passed and the government has still not released any SOP’s for the industry. The home department informed that they had not received any news or cabinet decisions from the general administration department (GDA). Without the prescribed guidelines, the opening of casinos is going to be delayed until the operators are able to take the right steps in ensuring the safety and security of their staff and guests. A senior officer from the department has assured them that they’re working on the SOP and it’ll be released as soon as possible in accordance with the decision from the cabinet. Srinivas Naik, Casino Pride director, said that he has not received any information from the state government yet but is waiting for the official order and for SOP to start operations.

People from all over the country are eagerly waiting for the casinos to reopen and the news about the potential reopening of casinos has created an atmosphere of excitement and buzz among the people. Hopefully we can get back to playing our favourite games in the best casinos in the country soon!
