‘Electronic system to track projects soon’

Panaji: Lamenting the tendency to use rules as a tool to stymie industrial projects, chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar said that he has plans to implement an electronic project tracking system for the investment promotion and facilitation board to get a real-time status report on cleared projects.

"We have been sanctioning projects. We have our regulations, but there are certain officers in certain departments who use these regulations (to hinder the project). If an officer is using regulations as a bottleneck, then how will work go on?" Parsekar said, while speaking on the sidelines of the 108th annual general body meeting of Goa chamber of commerce and industry.
While Parsekar refrained from revealing the deadline to implement the electronic project tracking and monitoring system, he assured industrialists that he would give it priority.
"I will be putting an order. It is very important. I would be giving a priority to this. The tracking system will show us which project has been cleared, what is its status, which NOC is pending," the Mandrem MLA said on the eve of his 60th birthday.
Parsekar, who celebrates his 60th birthday today, also expressed his optimism that land locked in litigation under Special Economic Zones would be released.
"We have to do that negotiation outside court. It looks like it will happen. If that is done, then it will be an achievement. If we give them 20-25% of the land then yes it may be possible," the chief minister said.
The chief minister, in his official address, assured industry stakeholders that by 2020, Goa would be the number one state in all sectors across the country.
