The state govt. wants to eradicate poverty from every village through Atmanirbhar Bharat Swayampurna Goa Initiative. It is possible through participation of locals along with state government. The programme will be banking on data collected by various govt. agencies about social and economic assets and liabilities of each of village.

As a part of “Aatmanirbhar Bharat Swayampoorna Goa”, training programmes would be conducted during the entire year for people to enhance their skills.
Launch of Atmanirbhar Bharat Swayampurna Goa Initiative
Goa govt. is relying on importing goods from other states because the state has neglected our own produce. Every day, around 2 lakh litres of milk is imported. Around 1.5 lakh eggs are a daily requirement during the tourism season in Goa and why can’t we produce this in our villages.
As part of the initiative, around 41 village panchayats have been identified for the early phase of the government’s self-sufficiency initiative. It will involve creating a detailed dossier on each village, listing existing infrastructure, potential and seeking inputs on the requirements to make it self-sufficient.
All government officers should be Karmayogis in their efforts to conduct the exercise to make Goa Swayampoorna. The Chief Minister added that one of the key agendas of his government was to eliminate poverty in the state. The state govt. want to eliminate poverty. Goa is completing 60 years of Liberation (from Portuguese rule) and if a resident of Goa is still below the poverty line and the state govt. needs to change this and increase his income.
