    It is ALLOWED to construct houses legally in CRZ-II(Developed Area) zone.
    Also it is allowed to construct house in CRZ-IB(InterTidalZone) under certain conditions but banks won't give loan here.

    For construction in CRZ we have to get clearance from Karnataka State Coastal Zone Management Authority whose office is located near MCC lalbagh. Clearance will be given case by case only. This is what I have been informed by Senior official whom I have met personally . Some people who started laying foundation might not have obtained clearance letter from CRZ authority.
