Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today announced that the legislation, commonly known as the Public Service Guarantee Act, would be fully implemented in the government services from April 1 onwards.

The Goa (Right of Citizens to Time-Bound Delivery of Public Services) Act, 2013, was passed by the Assembly on May 2, 2013, and assented to by the governor on June 19, 2013.

"Directions are given to all heads of departments to provide necessary workforce for the implementation of the Act. The Act will be notified in toto across all the departments from April 1 onwards as currently it is partially operational," he said.

The government had brought around 497 public services from 40 different departments under the ambit of the Act.

Services like issuing construction licences, giving consent for operating red, green and orange category industries have also been brought under the purview of the Act.
