The Corporation of City of Panaji (CCP) recently revealed the decision to not renew trade licences of six offshore casinos in Goa. The facilities are operating in the Mandovi river, and the decision forces them to move out of the jurisdiction at the end of the current term.

However, once they expire, the CCP will not renew them. This decision applies to all casinos operating in the Mandovi.
