Coconut regains 'tree' status in Goa as Assembly Passes Bill
09 August 2017 Current Affairs: The Goa Legislative Assembly passed a bill which regains coconut as a `tree, ensuring legal protection.

The Assembly, on the last day of Monsoon session, passed the Goa, Daman, and Diu (Preservation of) Trees Act, 1984 to regulate felling of coconut trees and reclassify it as a tree.

The previous Laxmikant Parsekar-led government changed the classification of a coconut tree to a `palm.
