The District Magistrate has directed the Electricity Department to stall the work of installation of 33KVA line, passing through the agricultural field of Parra.

The Parra villagers also filed a detailed petition before the High Court of Bombay at Goa, which referred the case to the Collector and District Magistrate for resolution. Thereafter, the villagers of Verla and Canca moved the DM complaining that the line had been erected over their fields, damaging them, without their knowledge or consent.

After hearing the matter over several weeks, an order was passed on October 7 asking the Electricity Department to halt its work, and commence the process of identifying the land owners as well as seek their consent. If the land owners object to the line, the Electricity Department would be free to approach the DM. “As of now, the farmers of Verla Canca have finally got temporary relief,” Cl;aude Alvares said in a press statement issued.
