Goa collectorates planed to take care of homeless individuals

GOA: The North Goa and South Goa collectorates have begun work on an action plan to take care of homeless individuals, including a proposal to house them in shelter homes. The report, which has yet to be finalised, will be placed before the government and the state executive committee (SEC) later this week.

Meanwhile, the government has also asked urban local bodies to conduct a survey in collaboration with local NGOs to identify the homeless and destitute in Goa’s 14 towns. “We are working on a report but we have not reached a stage where we can say that we have finalised anything,” said South Goa district collector Ajit Roy.

Urban local bodies have been sensitised about the issue and have been asked to conduct a survey within their jurisdiction. Organisations like CRY will be helping out,” said an official.
In March, the government attempted to shelter the homeless at the Margao railway station but the initiative was shut down as the move affected freight movement.
