Debate on Goans registering their birth in Portugal


The South Goa Advocates’ Association (SGAA) has chosen a panel to debate on the topic of ‘consequences of birth registration of Goans in Portugal’. Eminent personalities such as Rajeev Gomes, Aires Rodrigues, Ramakant Khalap, Radharao Gracias and Cleofato Countinho will make up the panel. The moderator for the debate will be Retired Justice Nelson A Britto. It will be held on august 27, 2016 from 9:30 am onward at Ravindra Bhavan in Margao.

The debate is organised to have dialogue over the situation and is open to all, since it hasn’t been discussed conclusively by the Government of India or through a judicial pronouncement. The topic according to the SGAA is said to be of utmost importance to Goans, thus providing a forum to discuss the issue so something concrete may emerge.
