On Sports City Land in Goa, Govt for Ayush Hosp, Ravindra Bhavan

GoaPanaji: After acquiring over 9 lakh sqm for building a Sports City at Dhargalim in Pernem for the National Games in 2011, the state government has given the go ahead for two non-sports projects—ayurvedic hospital and Ravindra Bhavan—on this land.


As per the information available with TOI, the government is in the process of transferring 2 lakh sqm to the ministry of Ayush (Ayurveda, yoga and naturopathy, unani, siddha and homeopathy) to build an ayurvedic hospital and naturopathy centre.


The transfer formalities of land from the directorate of sports and youth affairs (DSYA) to the Ayush ministry are expected to be completed later this month. North Goa MP Shripad Naik is the Union minister for Ayush.


“We were initially shown land at Chimbel but we discovered that the area was not just small but the terrain too was not conducive for our project. We asked the government for bigger land, and since our requirement was approximately 2 lakh sq mts, land at Dhargalim was allotted, The land (at Dhargalim) was unutilised for some time,” said Naik, who coincidentally is president of the Goa Olympic Association.


The state government has also greenlighted a proposal from the directorate of art and culture to construct a 30,000-sqm Ravindra Bhavan at the Sports City.


“Other departments started eyeing that land because it remained unutilised for a long time. The government had to take a decision when there were proposals from other departments,” said V M Prabhudesai, director, DSYA.


The only sports project that could come up at Dhargalim in the immediate future is an international cricket stadium. The government has told the Goa Cricket Association (GCA) that they are ready to lease 1.9 lakh sqm for the proposed 50,000-seater cricket stadium after the GCA started asking questions about the Rs 9 crore they had deposited in the government coffers.
