Source/Reference: Times of India, “ Most of the panchayats in Salcete are yet to utilise the golden jubilee grant for signature projects

Only ten village panchayats from the 30 odd panchayats from Salcete taluka have forwarded proposals to the government on how they plan to use the one time grant of Rs 10 lakhs. Twenty village panchayats are yet to submit proposals for projects under the one time grant which was sanctioned in 2011 to commemorate the golden jubilee of Goa’s liberation from the Portuguese regime by the erstwhile government.

Salcete block development office (BDO) pointed out that the funds were sanctioned for local self-governance bodies in rural and urban areas of the state. It is to be noted that each panchayat in the state had been sanctioned such a grant through the directorate of art and culture asking them to utilise the funds for signature project by the end of financial year.

From the ten panchayats, only the panchayats of Colva and Curtorim have been granted the approvals to commence work on the ‘signature projects’. The Curtorim panchayat has proposed to renovate and beautify St. Alex Church garden at Povacao, while the Colva panchayat has proposed extension of the panchayat building.

The remaining panchayats of Sao Jose de Areal, Varca, Telaulim, Orlim, Ambelim, Velim, Paroda, and Sarzora have also sent their proposals to the government.

From these, the proposal from the Velim Panchayat for an extension to the existing office building has been sent for technical sanction. Similar is the case with the proposal from Sao Jose De Areal panchayat for the construction of railing along the side of the canal near Bethany Convent at Igrejavaddo.

A work order from the Telaulim panchayat has to be issued regarding their proposal for the improvement of the panchayat playground. Work on the proposal for a fish market situated at Capleanvaddo by the Ambelim panchayat is under progress whereas the tendering process for the construction of a basketball court in the premises of St. Pius X Convent High School by the Orlim village pachayat is underway. The estimates for the reconstruction of a fish market ground floor with a proposed first floor office by the Varca panchayat have been prepared.
