No time frame fixed to complete RP 2021: DyCM

Porvorim: The government has not fixed any timeframe to complete Regional Plan (RP) 2021 though it had given different deadlines in the past, said deputy chief minister and town and country planning (TCP) minister, Francis D'Souza, in a written reply during Question Hour in the assembly on Friday.

To a query raised by opposition leader Pratapsingh Rane and Valpoi MLA Vishawajit Rane, D'Souza said the government has initiated the process of rectification of the RP, starting from the Sattari and Canacona talukas. He also said it had been decided that the RP would be completed after considering taluka-wise comments/rectifications, which he said, is a time consuming process.
D'Souza said comments and rectifications received are being forwarded to the respective taluka offices for inputs after conducting necessary site inspections while the state level committee (SLC) shall decide further on comments/rectifications on receipt of inputs received from taluka offices.
He was asked whether the government would modify the RP that was completed by the Congress government and notified, too, and whether it was permissible to do so without scrapping it.
"The process of rectifications or corrections to the RP is done under Section 17 of the TCP Act," D'Souza said, adding, "The section states that if the government, at any time after the RP has been published in the official gazette, is of the opinion that a revision is necessary, it may direct the chief town planner to undertake revision of the RP."
