Panaji: Minister for Town and Country Planning (TCP) Vijai Sardesai today said that government will duly consider the observations made by the five-member expert panel on the rationalization policy adopted by the government in zonal changes for planning process under Regional Plan 2021.

Minister said that he will place all findings before the State Legislative Assembly for discussion and the decision.

The expert panel constituted by the TCP to investigate into the alleged land conversions, has recommended that there is need to revisit the rationalization policy adopted for zonal changed under RP21. “The resentment from people was due to several insertions and change of zones, as finalized and needed to have transparent guidelines while adopting such a rationalization policy,” the committee stated.

When contacted, Minister said that he is studying the report and will consider the observations by giving the weight-age it deserves.

“We will have to consider the view on rationalization. Since the demand to put in operation RP 21 was made on the floor of the House by Congress party, let the rationalization policy be also debated and decided in the Assembly in presence of opposition,” he said.

Sardesai further said that any amendment to the TCP act to strengthen the planning process also can be considered on the floor of the House.
