Centre earmarks Rs 100 crore for Unity Mall in Goa

Panaji, Jul 14 (KNN) The union government is all set to provide an interest free loan of Rs 100 crore to the Goa government to set up a Unity Mall in the state.

Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Som Parkash on Thursday asked the State government to submit the proposal for Unity Mall at the earliest.


“An interest free loan of Rs 100 crore will be extended to Goa to set up Unity Mall, which is a dynamic retail space that will serve as a comprehensive destination for visitors to immerse themselves in the essence of Goa. It will feature one district-one product offerings and also an extensive range of local handicrafts,” the minister said.

The union minister informed that the government has identified cashew nuts as product one and feni as number two under one district-one product for North Goa. “In South Goa district, the positions are reversed. Feni will be product one and cashew nuts product two.,” he said.

“These product identifications serve to highlight the distinct specialties of each district, further reinforcing their unique identities,” he added.

Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte stated that the Union government is assisting Goa in many ways. He also assured that the DPR for the Unity Mall is being finalised within a month.  (KNN Bureau)
