Saligao local body raps 1 for land-filling

PANAJI: The Saligao panchayat recently issued a stop-work notice to Vishwas Umbraskar, a local resident, for filling agricultural land with debris for an illegal construction. It also wrote to the Saligao police to ensure “no illegal activity is carried out.”

The stop-work notice was issued after over 20 villagers complained about land-filling in the Sonarbhat-Donvaddo area. The local authorities immediately swung into action and served a notice to Umbraskar under the relevant sections of the Goa Panchayati Raj Act, 1994.

Following a site inspection on Friday, May 12, to determine the nature of the illegal activity, a further inspection on Monday, May 15, was held in the presence of panchayat representatives and police officials, after which the stop-work notice was issued.

Although the panchayat has asked the police to maintain a strict vigil, villagers allege that the illegal construction continues.
