The ceremony, organised by the District administration, tourism department, Ministry of Forestry, Environment and Climatic Change, Government of India, Society of Integrated Coastal Management and A2Z Infra Service Limited, was conducted with the presence of eminent personalities virtually and physically. 

The expenditure for the beach is Rs. 10.68 crore out of which the Central government and State government  provided Rs. 8 crore and 2.68 crore respectively. The authorities hope to increase tourism in the beach by providing better infrastructural provisions like roads connecting to the beach, parking area expansion, retention walls among other things. Suggestions for more number of lifeguards in squads were also made during the ceremonies in order to make an attempt to protect tourists from the depth of the sea.
