Appeal to Chimbel villagers to support IT Park

This petition had 164 supporters

India is on its path to development and IT has been major contributor towards this journey. IT is an industry that is seen as desirable and welcome in any part of the world. Many majors cities across India have prospered from IT industry.

The State Government of Goa released the draft of the new Goa IT Policy 2015 which aims to attract Electronic Manufacturing Cluster (EMC) and large IT companies to Goa.The proposed site for the IT park is in Chimbel, just 4kms from the capital, Panaji.

The Government has taken steps in a big way to utilize unused Government land to set up an IT park in Chimbel. This should have been welcomed with open arms by the entire state and more so by Chimbel village. It is unfortunate and shocking to see such a project facing opposition from the people who are sure to benefit from it.

How the change will impact us?

  • It is mandatory for all companies to take up CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities. These involve donations to schools, laying roads, installing traffic islands, setting up electric poles, blood donation camps, maintain cleanliness, garbage disposal etc. We should expect a whole lot of development in the village initiated by the IT companies that get set up there.
  • Our goal is to make sure Goans do not have to leave the state for a job. At the same time we do not support influx of migrants into Goa. This is one industry that absorbs youth from all educational streams for high scaled jobs and also smaller jobs will be open to the local villagers, it is hence the most suitable one for Goa. Every software company needs not just programmers but accountants, lawyers, fine arts graduates, and almost people from every profession. Goa has every educational stream and is capable of providing manpower to the IT industry.
  • Sadly today, a part of the Goan economy is driven by industries like gambling and real estate. The educated youth of Goa on the other hand are leaving Goa to earn a livelihood. This current trend is degrading the identity of Goa. In such times we need a industry which not only creates jobs but at the same time is sustainable, less polluting, and also contributes to the community.
  • Chimbel for far too long has been in negative light. This gives us opportunity to create a positive identity and put Chimbel and Goa on the map of the world.

IT Park for Chimbel - a opportunity for better present and secured future.

We residents of Chimbel, can bring about a change by wholeheartedly supporting the IT park. Entire Goa will thank us for saving several generations of the state.
