While attending an environmental public hearing with affected villagers, in Dholera on deciding on the mapping for Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notification, state activists have said that Gujarat's mapping is based on old data and is severely flawed.

Rohit Prajapati of Paryavaran Suraksha Samiti said that during the hearing, it was brought to the officials' notice that they were trying to get the mapping done on the basis of 2011 data. "The problem with deciding on the basis of old data is that a lot of changes happen on the ground and this will not be reflected.
