The year 2021 marks 60 years of Goa's Liberation from the autocracy of Portuguese Colony, which is said to have control over the sunshine state for 451 years, before the region was liberated by the Indian armed forces on December 18, 1961. Standing as one of the newer states of the Indian political and state mapping, Goa's borders cage an area of 914,800 acres, housing several places of historical significance. Several of these are in dire need of restoration, which will now be made possible through the allocation of the windfall allocation to the state by the Union Ministry of Finance. This allocation is a means to serve the purpose of Goa's growth and development, a step forward to realise the dream of an Aatmanirbhar Bharat or a self-reliant India.
