I welcome you, to the website of the Legislative Assembly of the State of Goa, which has been further enriched by including biographical sketches of all the members of the 4th Legislative Assembly of the State of Goa i.e. the present Assembly.
Goa is situated on the west coast of India, about 400 kms south of Mumbai. Most of the coast line of Goa is fringed by sandy beaches. Goa is dominated by beautiful landscaping formed by the various rivers and their tributaries, which flow from the western ghats in to the Arabian sea.
Goa has been liberated from the colonial rule of Portuguese on 19th December, 1961. Since then, it has become the part of the Union of India. It has acquired the status of full fledged State on 30th May, 1987. It has a unicameral Legislature, comprising one House called ‘The Goa Legislative Assembly'. It has 40 members since it became a State. Prior to this, it was an Union Territory with a different composition as far as the Legislative Assembly was concerned.
Today, Goa has a newly constructed and prestigious State Assembly Complex, a symbol of the Democracy commissioned in March 2000. This building is located on a picturesque site with ultra-modern in-house facilities. The building consists of VIP Block, Assembly Block and the Secretariat Block. The Assembly Hall has Audio and Video archival systems, automatic vote recorders, digital microphone systems and connectivity arrangements for e-legislative activities.The Legislation being one of the Pillars of Democracy, its functioning should be beneficial to the State and our country.
I have a dream of qualitative debate, discussion on various Government policies on the floor of the House, so that each and every citizen of Goa should get information about the happenings in the Legislative Assembly in a positive way. We would like to make our Goa an ideal State.
