Porvorim: Adhering to the villagers demand, the Town and Country Planning (TCP) Board today dropped the Bamolim and Kadamba plateau from the jurisdiction of Greater Panjim Planning and Development Area (GPPDA).

The Board also deliberated that the fate of Regional Plan 2021, which is currently put in operation, be decided on the Floor of the House. It also resolved to amend the TCP Act, 1976, thereby brining in necessary changes to fit in the present day.

Speaking to press post meeting, TCP Minister Vijai Sardesai said that the Board has taken the decision to stand by our commitment and to drop these contentious villages from GPPDA as promised on Easter Eve. “All the villages covering Bamolim plateau and Kadamba plateau are removed from GPPDA,” he said.

“Taliegao and Panjim planning areas are not touched as there was no opposition to the same,” he added.

Minister said that the Board also discussed all issues that have come in public domain recently, including the decision to put in operation the RP 21. “It has been clearly explained and held by the Board that this decision was taken after a demand emanated in the State assembly from the representatives of the people that the RP which is notified has to be operationalized,” he said.

“Since the demand to operationalize the regional plan came from the members of the legislative assembly, the best possible forum to discuss on the fate of RP21 is to be decided on the floor of the house and we should wait till then,” Sardesai stated.
