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.
