Bangaram & Thinnakara Beach Tent Camping Adventures!

Bangaram is situated at 10o56' north latitude and 72o17' east longitude. There are four small islands on the reef — the two largest (Bangaram and Thinnakara) lie on the edge of the lagoon basin, and the smaller two (Parali-1 and Parali-ll) are located on the northeast reef perimeter.

Bangaram presents a breathtaking spectacle of sparkling coral reefs, turquoise blue lagoons, silvery beaches and lush green coconut palms. The island looks like emeralds in the vast expanse of the sea, and nature’s beauty is preserved at its best. The virgin reefs of Bangaram have been ranked by experienced divers as being among the best anywhere.
The Legal Battle for Bangaram Resort, U.T. of Lakshadweep
Posted on November 15, 2012 [Source: Lakshadweep Forum].

The lease period of M/s.Casino Hotels for Bangaram, with SPORTS was expired on 31st August 2010. Instead of giving vacant possession of the Bangaram Resort, M/s. Casino Hotels filed a Writ Petition in the High Court of Kerala challenging the notice of eviction and demanding extension of the lease period.

The issue became more complex with a bunch of petitions from the land owners of Bangaram island. The SPORTS has been collecting a huge amount from its lessee, but was giving only a marginal portion to its leaser – said the land owners. While hearing the W.A.1517/2010 dated 22nd October 2010, the two learned Judges of the Kerala High Court, who heard the Writ Petition found that the case of M/s. Casino Hotels is untenable.

The claim is based on the fact that in 1988, when global tenders were accepted they had mentioned therein that they would continue for a period of 25 years. Therefore, it is pointed out that they hoped that even though the initial lease was only for a period of five years, they will be able to continue atleast till 2013. They also say that they sought renewal on 25.2.2010 and since no reply was received till 7.8.2010, they expected that the lease would be renewed”. “There is no merit in the above contention at all. From the arrangement entered into between SPORTS and M/s. Casino, it is clear that it was only for a period of five years”. The Court observed.

M/s. Casino went on appeal against this order to the Supreme Court of India in 4 Special Leave Petitions (SLP). The Hon’ble Supreme Court did not allow them to entertain any guests but also did not allow UTL Administration to dispossess them till the final orders of the Court. The Bangaram Resort now remains closed, and the matter is pending final decision before the Supreme Court.

“It is causing avoidable hardships to the most marginalized Scheduled Tribe, Lakshadweep, as their properties have been taken over on lease for the tourism developments. This is exploitation of the ethnic population and also goes against the basic principle(s) of ‘responsible tourism’.
