Welcome to the Gobal Village:
Where Goans can go to work in the Gulf, cruise liners, Cayman Islands,
Swindon and then return to Goa to settle down.
Where Goans can emigrate overseas and the never return to Goa to settle down.
Where Goans can remain in Goa and work for someone else at local wage
levels or be self-employed, enterprising and get rich - all hopefully
within the law.
Where the world will beat a path to your doorstep if your land is
beautiful enough and you encourage them to come.
Where people can sell what they own to the highest bidder so that they
can use the money as they see fit.
Where Goans could have bought all the land in Goa they wanted before
India and the world discovered it. Shortsightedness is not anybody's
fault but your own.
Where every Goan does not have the right to own land or houses or
flats if their ancestors did not leave them anything or they were not
fortunate to be able to afford it themselves. India has chosen not to
be a communist or socialist country and you cannot expect to be given
land free or at low prices.
Please do not confuse selling land to foreigners with the breaking of
the law by Panchayats, Municipalities and the State Govt. Take the
lawbreakers to task, whether they are Goan, India or foreign.
All things being equal, foreigners are better neighbors - if they are
not riff-raff, they have been brought up to respect the law, they will
beautify their homes and the houses in the neighborhood will
ultimately fetch better prices because of this.
You may say traditional occupations in Goa are being lost. That is
happening everywhere. In one of the cities near Toronto called Oshawa,
the whole town depends on the GM van plants. These plants are the most
productive in North America and generations of Oshawans have worked
here. They are mostly just high schoolers but were earning about
$80,000 annually on assembly line jobs. All of a sudden GM hits the
dust and these plants close. No doubt these employees will get
unemployment insurance for the next 9 months but after that, kaput.
Life is not fair, but instead of moaning and complaining, use your
talents. Fight for justice if you have been wronged. Don't let the
politicians and the goondas frighten you. Instead of railing against
foreigners and Goans who sell their land to the highest bidder, choose

Reply to: British citizens buying property in Goa (Gabriel de Figueiredo)
We goans don?t have problem when our fellow goan brothers and sisters buy properties or settled in other countries, as their government encourages migration and hence their government are obliged to make law as per these regulations and they will do that as they have good infrastructure and vast land and very less population.
Mr. Gabriel might not been in Goa recently or might not aware of Goa?s Demography, its true that lots of Goans by the influence of Portuguese and Africa has managed to find a new place to settled and are able to buy properties but some has to sell their ancestral properties in Goa for quick and more money to well known Goan industrialist and non- goans to obtain a healthy bond deposits enough to settle in western world.
Selling Goan properties to such people was first initiated by these people who had a craze of going out of India. At this time goa was just liberated and Goan AMM ADMIN at that time was not able to afford to buy these properties and now when our generation wants to buy properties to our next generation after all hard work of Gulf and ships still we cannot effort the rates which are fixed by Land mafias.
Let me come to the point: Sancoale is the village in limelight ever since the ZACL or Birla came in Goa, a mega project called M-TECH is passed by Village Sarpanch without consulting the village member or even knowledge of some elected Panchayat members, thanks to the elected ministers and MLA?s. When the village come to know about this project it was opposed and has put on hold but the people who got or may get their benefits on this projects are still in favor and wants to get the clearance by force.
Being a member of this village I was not aware of any such project until one of my colleague a UK national who never visited Goa or even India in his life confirms me that he has bought an apartment in this so called M-TECH Beach village and this was happened due to good property sellers or broker are putting up their stalls in UK and other western countries to sell Goa in peaces.
Why Brits coming to Goa: this is what my UK colleagues told me. The cost of ?property and apartments is high in UK, in past few years very few people could afford and in next few years specially this generation who are in their twenties who still studies or worked as salaried they may not able to buy their own properties even if they work for 40 years from now.
My friend has booked this apartment with this broker?s office in UK just for ? 37,000 and the same might have cost him ? 320,000 in UK and this was confirmed by my other colleague who has bought a property in Spain with similar kind of project and these projects are introduced by their governments, they started their first project in Thailand, Cyprus, Spain and now they are in Goa not sure if they have any places in India, this is to help their average citizen to leave affordably, there can be other factors also involved which Goa will be in worlds map as next destination after Pathaya or phuket.
The local community of Goa is opposing all these projects which are now in heart of every single village, but Govt. still wants to bring such projects and wants to support this particular project M-TECH, no doubt some ministers and their family might got their UK citizenship or just waiting to get a business venture with counterpart.
Effects to AMM ADMIN: no doubt all these mega projects will have all facilities and so also it will required lot of energy, water, electricity etc. a village like Sancoale and Benaulim enjoy good traditional sea food which is at present within the limits of amm admi this will not remain the same, vegetable and other food products will be out of reach of amm admi, although Goa is over crowded with currant situation, thanks to govt. employment policies and their vote banks, there will be more non goans will come to goa to work with Europeans ?without passport or visa or green card and out Politian will be more happy to issue them a ration card within ?minutes where it takes 3 days to get a birth certificate for a goan and on other side we goans will be running and queuing after agents with money and ministers to get a foreign visa or green card.
there are so many ways NRI goans can help goan comunity but not by selling goa to outsiders, I am sure there are many NRI's who are now experts on garbage bisposals and recycles this will be a best coause to come back to your home land and assist our goverment to solve this great mistry of garbage in goa.
