HC issues notice to Goa government over land maps of Mapusa, Panaji – ET RealEstate

PANAJI: The high court of Bombay at Goa on Saturday issued a notice to the chief town planner and others following a PIL challenging the preparation of land use maps and registers for Panaji and Mapusa.

Both the plans were notified in December 2016 and the petitioners stated that the government had directed the North Goa Planning and Development Authority in 2018 to make changes in the outline development plans of Panaji and Mapusa.

The petitioners are the Bodgeshwar Shetkari Sangh (BSS), the Tenants Association of Camarcasanacho Bundh, the Goa Bachao Abhiyan and the Goa Foundation.

They stated that the government had directed the planning and development authority to prepare fresh land use registers and maps as there is no provision in the Town and Country Planning Act for such a procedure.

The BSS submitted that the names of approximately 1,300 farmers, mostly tenanted, were missing from the Mapusa register and had been replaced with the names of those who originally owned the lands.
