Thiruvananthapuram: This year’s trawling ban in Kerala will start on June 10 and end on July 31, a state cabinet meeting decided on Wednesday (May 31).

The 52-day trawling ban is a crucial step in marine fisheries conservation. This period is recognized as the spawning period for commercially significant fish species, including oil sardines, found off the Kerala coast.

The state government also decided to use sign language interpreters in significant programs attended by the governor, chief minister, and ministers.

In a revision to the Kerala Puraskaram guidelines, recipients of Padma Awards will no longer be eligible for Kerala awards. Indian citizens who have resided in the state for ten years will be considered for these accolades, the cabinet decided.

Private Industrial Estate Scheme

Amendments will be made to the Private Industrial Estate Scheme, 2022, to foster a more conducive environment for private industrial estates. This measure aims to encourage industrial establishment growth in the state, a press release noted.
