Madikeri, Karnataka, June 2 (UNI): As a precautionary measure some of taluks in the Kodagu district administration have issued notices to homestay and resort owners against hosting tourists, until Aug 31 to avoid any eventuality during the monsoon.

It was said that over 21 Homestays and one resort in Makkandur have been served with notices by Makkandur Panchayat not to operate their guest facility till August 31 as the place is prone to landslides.

The officials had also warned Homestays and resort owners that if the orders are violated, they will be solely responsible for tourist safety in case of a natural calamity.

Earlier the Kodagu District Administration held a meeting with scientists from Geological Survey of India and other weather experts where they told Deputy Commissioner Annies Kanmani Joy and other authorities that there is a danger of floods and landslips this year too.

They suggested that as a precautionary measure, Homestays, resorts and hotels operating in hilly areas must be closed till Aug 31.

Following the footsteps of Makkandur Gram Panchayat, several other Panchayats including K Nidugane, Galibeedu, Hattihole, Kaloor, Monnangeri, Second Monnangeri and Hebbatageri are likely to take similar steps to avoid any disaster during Monsoon.

However, the owners of the homestays and resort have urged the authorities to reconsider their orders, stating that after last year’s disaster they had spent lakhs of rupees to renovate the damaged facilities.
