Sun, sand, beaches and fiestas constitute one of the most celebrated holiday destinations of India – Goa. The best beach therapy for working professionals, Goa has always been the holiday hub for Indian and millions of international tourists. However, lately, the state is witnessing an evident shift from being India’s ideal holiday spot to India’s emerging start-up destination.
Young entrepreneurs in their 20s and early 30s have identified the advantages of starting a business in Goa. The government is also helping in accelerating the momentum to make Goa one of the top 25 start-up destinations of Asia by 2025.
In the hullabaloo, the capital city of Goa, Panjim is emerging as one of the most preferred start-up destinations. The corporation of the City of Panaji is selected among the 100 cities of national Smart Cities Challenge. A smart city is one that uses smart operations to develop into a more sustainable and resilient urban system. Here’s how Panjim is poised to become one of the smartest cities in India and a perfect business hub:
Excellent connectivity: Panjim offers very good inter and intrastate connectivity via roads, rails, air and water.
- Roads - NH 17 connects all nearby cities and neighbouring states, and NH 4A connects Belgaum via Ponda and forms the central spine of the city
- Rail - Railway station at Karmali is just 12 km away from Panjim
- Air - Airport at Dabolim is 35 km away from Panjim
High human development index: Panjim is recorded to have the highest per-capita income in India. According to a report by India Smart City Mission (http://icities4greengrowth.in/sites/default/files/documentfiles/%5Bnid%5D/Panaji%20Smart%20City%20Proposal.pdf), human development index in Goa is very high. Take a look:
- Literacy rate in 2011 - 87%
- Work participation rate in 2011 – 42.56%
- 97.32% of the workforce is involved in the tertiary sector that supports the tourism sector and is the economic backbone of the city
Well-equipped municipal service provision: Panjim offers uninterrupted power supply with 100% coverage. The city is also adequate with water supply for present and future needs. The households are also well operated with solid waste collection and recycling practices.
With so many benefits, Panjim is bubbling with numerous opportunities–
- The city has a walkable scale that makes it possible to develop open space networks linking the blue-green infrastructure and areas of tourist interest
- Panjim has ready-to-implement development plans and projects across multiple sectors through its continuous water supply, LED street lighting, open spaces conservation and enhancing biodiversity
- As a district and state headquarters and a major international tourist destination, economic growth potential is significant in Panjim
To sum, Panjim is bestowed with many features that make the city economically, culturally and socially strong. With the wave of market-leading businesses, Panjim is growing with many new age premium commercial spaces. Out of them, Gera’s Imperium Star is one of the most revered workplaces. The development is furnished with meticulous features laid out with ground+ 8 floors of premium office space, food courts and retail spaces. Each office and shop here is equipped with state-of-the-art amenities, intelligent design and features that keep one highly productive and active.

My son Tattva had been enrolled in the intermediate level and has been coached by the Vishwanathan Anand Chess Academy coach . Tattva has made remarkable strides and will be on his way to get his FIDE rating in November. A lot of credit goes to the mentor for his unique way of handling his students. He has been very patient while working with Tattva on his areas of improvement. In addition before the tournament the coach had voluntarily added additional classes and doubled his efforts to get a better performance out of Tattva. He has shown complete ownership which is commendable. I hope he continues to develop more and more chess players in the coming days...
