WISL is ten

Herald (Page 4, Dec 28, 2005) has this report reporting that the Western India Shipyard Ltd has completed ten years of successful operation on December 23.

Unfortunately, reporting on industry in Goa is largely restricted to reproducing official statements, specially on advertisement-friendly firms. But, if one recalls right, there was an issue of safety raised in a section of the press recently.

OTHER REPORTS relating to Vasco include:

* Poor lighting at Vasco KTC bus-stand: "The passenger shed at this stand has just three tube lights, which are lighting, and two halogen to illuminate the sorroundings at this stand. The stand, unlike the city stand, wears a deserted look and it is only during peak hours that one witnesses some crowd". (Gomtantak Times)

* Legal literacy camp held at Vasco: "... at Shri Mahadev Saunsthan, Alto Dabolim... Advocate SN Karmali spoke on Entitlement of Legal Aid... Adv S N Kerkar spoke on the Rent Control Act and highlighted as to what benefit is provided to the lesser and lessee under the law. Advocate Raju Dhavlikar spoke on the Consumer Protection Act...."
