It is an earnest request to Town Planing Minister and NGPDA to restore the hill slopes before finalizing the settlement areas, as Goa has thousands of square metres of sloping hills and has many forest areas and fruit trees. Similarly contour layout (land with more than 25 degree slope) is also not suitable for construction development. So the former Manohar Parrikar government had declared that area as a Non-Development Zones (NDZ) in the Regional plan. So how are those parts variable in ODP? Due to frequent Tenancy Act amendments, hill land cases are pending before various courts and tenancy cases are referred to civil and district courts and again to the offices of Deputy collectors and Mamlatdars, resulting in delays. This benefit is being taken by some to change the orchard areas, mainly the hilly areas into settlement zones. We hope that the government will maintain a balance with nature.
