Panaji, Apr 20 (PTI) The Goa government on Monday

began easing lockdown restrictions on some industries, and the

the state''s Chamber of Commerce and Industry stated that a

majority of units would apply to Goa Industrial Development

Corporation for permission to resume operations.

Earlier, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had designated

GIDC as the nodal agency for permission to industrial units to

resume operations in the second phase of lockdown for the

coronavirus outbreak.

"The exact picture as far as resumption of industrial

operations is concerned will be clear in two to three days.

However, we believe maximum number of units will resume

operations," GCCI President Manoj Caculo told PTI.

He said sourcing raw materials, transport and manpower

may be concerns intially for some sectors.

A GIDC official said all sectors that will be allowed

to resume will have to enforce strict social distancing norms

and action would be taken if these are violated.

Meawnhile, the Goa Mineral Ore Exporters Association

president Ambar Timblo, in a press statement, asked the state

government to allow the sector, shut after a Supreme Court

order, to resume with "certain safety procedures and

practices".

The Supreme Court had, in March 2018, quashed 88

mining leases and banned extraction of fresh ore. PTI RPS
