30 % Housing Board Plots For Villagers

Housing Minister Nilkanth Halarnkar on Wednesday assured the Legislative Assembly that 30 per cent of the plots in Housing Board colonies will be reserved for locals from the village where the colony is being set up.
The assurance came in reply to Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Mahadev Naik representing the Shiroda constituency pointing out that the people were opposed to setting up a housing colony in the village as it was very close to a church and the people feared that the colony would disturb the religious activities.

However, Nilkanth Halarnkar said it was because of the opposition from the villagers and the volte face done by the panchayat that had initially granted the NOC but later withdrawn it that the Goa Housing Board has decided to reserve 30 per cent of the plots for people from Shiroda village.
