The notification requiring an NOC of a Widow to be signed before Deputy Collector stands withdrawn by the Government of Goa with immediate effect. This was possible due to the efforts of Minister for Revenue Smt. Jennifer Monserrate, Revenue Secretary Shri. Sanjay Kumar, and support of Chief Minister, Dr. Pramod Sawant.


The Order to that effect has been issued by the government on 31st Oct 2019, whereby, government has decided to withdraw all said circulars, orders and instructions with immediate effect regarding transactions of land which includes sale, gift, mutation, power of attorney by Widows. With this order, the concerned public and stake holders who were made to obtain NOC of a Widow sworn before the Deputy Collector for sale of each flat, plot or tenement are now relieved of the same. 

This issue was deliberated before Minister for Revenue Smt. Jennifer Monserrate by representatives of several institutions and concerned affected common people. The Revenue Minister has thanked the Chief Minister for his dedicated contribution as this order now comes as a relief to all Widows based in the state, abroad and to the people at large who were severely distressed due to the same.
