The Goa State Biodiversity Board (GSBB) has called for a joint inspection of alleged land filling site in Chauder-Cortalim on March 25 at 11 am.
The inspection which has been fixed by Member Secretary of GSBB Dr Nitin Sawant has asked various other authorities including Deputy Collector, Mormugao, Department of Agriculture, Water Resources Department, Town and Country Planning, Cortalim Sarpanch, PWD to depute their represetative and to submit a report to his office at the earliest with their considered opinion.
Cases of land filling and hill cutting have been on the rise in Cortalim, Sancoale and neighbouring villages with Revenue department officials in many cases only making a checklist with no further action in the matter.
