PANJIM: The High Court of Bombay at Goa has adjourned the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) challenging the location of the proposed IT Park at Chimbel after the State government on Wednesday sought time to file its affidavit in reply to the petition. 

The PIL filed by the Chimbel Gram Seva Kala Ani Sunskrutik Manch, together with the Goa Foundation has sought that government’s decision to set up IT in the village be quashed and set aside.  

The petitioners have alleged that the park activity initiated by Infotech and the Department of Information Technology since September 2018 has no permissions from the statutory authorities and it would be a serious threat to the heritage wetland. 

When the matter came up for hearing on Wednesday, the State sought one week’s time to submit its reply which was granted by the court.
