TOURISM SECTOR TO GET A BOOST FROM GOLF COURSE AT THE COST OF DISASTER FOR GOANS INHABITANTS

PANJIM: The tourism sector in the state could get a big boost in the form of a Professional Golf Association standard golf course, which would attract top class tourists, as three major parties have proposed to set it up in the state.
The three firms that have proposed to set up the golf course and provide allied services are DLF Properties, Leading Hotels and Oxford Properties. The three companies had responded to the tourism department tenders for setting up golf course and allied facilities.
While DLF properties and Leading Hotels have submitted all the documents required for qualification in the process, the third firm (Oxford Properties) has only shown expression of interest, said sources in the tourism department.
The tourism department officials further stated that the tenders submitted by the three firms would be examined in detail by a committee headed by the Tourism Minister, Mr Nilkanth Halarnkar. The committee would also decide whom to give the chance to set up golf course.
The tourism department officials further said that the government would not offer land or funds to the successful bidder but would partner with the private operator to get the benefits under Large Revenue Generation Scheme of Ministry of Tourism of government of India.
