Joint inspection of the Cortalim market complex was held on Tuesday by the Goa State Infrastructure Development Corporation (GSIDC), Cortalim Sarpanch, Cortalim MLA and a few others.
The market complex will be renovated and the vendors will be located inside the complex shortly.
GSIDC Vice Chairman Deepak Naik along with the Cortalim MLA Antonio Vas, Cortalim Sarpanch Senia Pereira and others undertook the joint inspection of the market complex.
Speaking to reporters, Sarpanch Senia Pereira said that during the inspection it was observed that a certain section of the market complex needs renovation, which will be taken up as assured by the GSIDC Vice Chairman Deepak Naik.
She further requested the vendors selling their wares on the side of the road, outside the market complex, to come inside the premises and conduct their business.
Pereira also warned that strict action will be taken against those vendors who sit by the roadside to sell their goods. The goods of such vendors will be confiscated if found on the roadside, the sarpanch added.
She said changes will be carried out in the market policy to favour local vendors.
The GSIDC Vice Chairman said that this market complex project is very beneficial for the vendors to do business under one roof. He further said that he has requested the local MLA to undertake a meeting of the market committee and to utilise the market complex in an efficient manner after its renovation.
He added that government offices needed to be shifted to this complex for the convenience of the people.
