The doorstep government initiative will be aimed at grievance redressal and to ensure that every resident of Goa can take the full benefits of the various official schemes and initiatives launched by the government.

The Pramod Sawant-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Goa will start its ‘Sarkar Tumchya Dari’ (government at your doorstep) initiative from Sunday with the intention to take services and facilities to the doorsteps of citizens, significantly easing the procedures often involved with bureaucracy. An announcement was made on Friday in this regard by Sawant, who announced that his government will launch the initiative on September 19 from the Thivim assembly segment in North Goa.
