Loud music parties continue in North Goa villages such as Vagator and Anjuna despite the High Court of Bombay banning loud music post-10 pm sans necessary permissions.
The court order came after plaints of blatant sound violations came to the fore. The court directed local authorities of Goa to monitor sound levels during the month of November and the festive months of December and January.
Photographs of traffic jams captured recently at Anjuna and Vagator post-midnight clearly show a rush of tourists headed to some of the night parties in the North coastal belt.
Despite having full-fledged police stations in these locations, one wonders how these parties were held.
In Anjuna and Vagator, entry fees to these musical happenings or night party venues started from Rs 8000 and went upto Rs 25,000 and above.
Post-mid-night as the crowds get bigger, the parties extend their time.
So, ban or no ban, Goa's North coastal belt continues to rock.
