South Goa Progressive Truck Owners Association members on July 15 at Curchorem discussed problems faced by the members after closing down of the mining in the State and resolved to take up the grievances before the government. 

“Government should ensure resumption of iron ore mining activities immediately as the majority of people in the State are dependent on mining, which is a major source of income. Mining dependent cannot survive without mining,” SGPTOA President Prakash Raut Desai said in the memorandum. 

He said that mining activities provided a good source of income to truck owners, which was their livelihood, and requested a financial package for the truck owners. 

The Association demanded that the road tax paid for the current financial year be refunded to truck owners, as due to closure of industry, their vehicles are off the road. The members also said that the road tax be waived off till resumption of mining activity. 

The Association requested the government that the One Time Settlement Scheme be extended as the Co-operative Credit Societies, have not adopted the scheme.
