Vijai directs PDA to keep decisions on hold till TCP Board meets and decides on issue

PANJIM: As it proposes a review of the Greater Panjim Planning and Development Authority (GPPDA) jurisdiction, Town and Country Planning (TCP) Minister Vijai Sardesai directed the authority not to take any decision in regard to areas, which are currently in controversy due to the growing opposition.

GPPDA on Tuesday held its first meeting, however, the planning areas of Chimbel, St Cruz, Old Goa and Curca-Bambolim-Talaulim, whose inclusion is being opposed, were not taken up. 

“We will review and think about it during the TCP board meeting scheduled on March 19. We will go into the details of each and every area that was put under the PDA, its status and what has been done so far. We will also consider and look into the people’s objections,” Sardesai said. 

“I have directed GPPDA to keep on hold any decision on the areas that are in controversy till the Board takes the decision,” the Minister said adding that there would be no compromise on promoting vertical development on plateaus.

GPPDA chairman Atanasio Monserrate said that following directions from the Minister, the authority during its meeting on Tuesday, held no discussion on any of those areas. “Though, they were part of the agenda, we decide not to discuss them till the TCP Board decides on it on March 19,” he said. 

“Minister had called me yesterday to inform me not to take any decision in regards to these areas,” he added. 

Monserrate, however, declined to disclose what was on the agenda stating, “When it is not discussed why to talk about it.”
