A recent news report states that the Rajya Sabha was notified that six of the offshore casinos in Goa have no environmental impact on the Mandovi river. A water audit carried out by the Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) indicated that the casinos are not polluting the river.

A written reply given to the Trinamool Congress Member of Parliament, Derek O’Brien in Rajya Sabha, stated that, “The GSPCB has informed that TUV SUD South Asia Pvt. Ltd. had carried out a water audit of River Mandovi to identify and evaluate potential environmental impacts, especially due to disposal of sewage with the operation of the casinos. The water audit indicated that there are no adverse environmental impacts of the operation of these vessels.”
