Panaji: The Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant today handed over the work order for construction of an existing municipal building at Canacona to MLA Isidore Fernandes.
Rupees 10 crore project will be constructed by the Goa State Urban Development Agency (GSUDA). The work is expected to commence from this month end.
Informing about the same, Fernandes said that it was a long pending proposal, which was delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic.
He said that despite the financial crunch, the Chief Minister, during the last cabinet meeting, approved the project and sanctioned Rs 10 crore.
Fernandes also thanked Urban Development Minister Milind Naik, who took up the proposal on priority and ensured that the sanction is granted.
“The foundation was already laid for the project,” he said.
The MLA said that the existing municipal building is saturated and hence there was an urgent need to have a new facility.
