Governor issues directions for austerity measures at Raj Bhavan

Panjim: The Governor of Goa, Satya Pal Malik has given various instructions to the Raj Bhavan for economising expenditure and making optimal usage of resources apart from taking a decision to forgo 30% of his salary for the entire financial year 2020-2021.

Most of the Raj Bhavan officials/officers have contributed one day’s salary and a few have contributed more than a day’s salary. The Governor is of the view that this will be a small but significant contribution towards combating COVID-19 and mitigating the plight of the people. [H]
