Illegal Homes In Orchard Lands To Be Made Legal

A new decision by the State Cabinet would help regularize 13,000 houses across the State. These were in the group of unauthorized constructions in cultivatable land and orchard land which has now been removed from under eco-sensitive-zone II. An amendment to the Goa Regulation of Unauthorized Construction Act 2016 has been sanctioned.  Pramod Sawant, Chief Minister, said that the government wasn’t able to regularise these houses before because they were under the eco-sensitive-zone II areas.

Agriculture and orchard lands from eco-sensitive-zone II have been removed. Previously, unsanctioned constructions that came under wildlife sanctuaries, no-development zones, coastal regulation zones, protected forests, khazan land, public land, and whatever blocked water channels which are natural were not chosen for legalisation. Another decision that the cabinet has taken is to remove government departments’ fees to get conversion sanads for work which will aid development.
