Subject: Objection against designating Vanxim island for eco-torism in Goa (RP) 2021


As we have got detail information that (TCP) Town and Country Planning is getting to designate Vanxim island for Eco-tourism our Ilha de Vanxim Association objects the Eco-tourism project, which strongly supported by Malar Panchayat. We have got information that Panchayat, local MLA, and Mahendra Gaunekar are pushing forward this so-called Eco-tourism project.

We at Vanxim had very successful three mega meetings, and people of different places of Goa participated for the same to strongly object the Golf Course/Casinos/Private Marinas/Gambling/Spa/Luxury villas/Prostitution etc.

On 10/1/2011 we gave these very objection to your office, for your quick reference, we Ilha de Vanxi Association are forwarding the same to you.

Here the mega project objection was raised right through the Panchayat. We strongly objected any projects at Vanxim island at our Gram Sabha.

Inspite of these very objection raised by our Association (also in writing etc) who is Sarpanch (Ex/ Tulsidas Kundaikar) local MLA and Mahendra Gaunekar to decide for our Vanxim village?

Our ancestors kept our island as a treasure. It is more than a gold mine.

Our Ilha de Vanxim Association, proudly and intensely look forward to respect our ancestors and everything that belongs to Vanxim.

Our Vanxim island is of Vanshikars and not of Gaunekars.

We strongly object Eco-tourism project at Vanxim.

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely
Maggie Silveira
