Goa government to offer Special Package to Mining-Affected People

Now, in most likelihood, tax-payers from the state of Goa will have to pay for the mining-affected people. Goa government’s supplementary demand for grants during the forthcoming Assembly session will include a special financial package for the people affected with mining closure, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said.

The Session is scheduled to begin on January 28.

It will take at least one month for the actual package to be distributed to the people, Parrikar told GoaChronicle.com.

The state government has already begun discussions with various banks to restructure the loans sanctioned to purchase trucks, barges (ships) and mining equipment.

In the past, Parrikar had assured to implement developmental works worth Rs 100-150 crore in the mining belt, the benefit of which will go to the people affected with mining closure.
