About Us
The Municipality during the erstwhile Portuguese regime was known as "Camara Municipal de Salcete" catering to all the villages in Salcete Taluka until the Goa Municipalities Act, 1968, came into force. The "Camara Municipal de Salcete" is now reconstituted into Margao Municipal Council. The Members of the "Camara Municipal de Salcete" were then nominated by the Government, but after the reconstitution of the Municipal Council, the Members to all the 20 wards (10 in Margao & 10 in Fatorda) are elected by the Members of the council.

There is no informative material available as a compilation to make the public aware and understand the procedure laid down to get their work done easily. Therefore the main purpose of this compendium is to bring at one place, the basic information about the procedures involved in obtaining various NOC's licences and permissions, hiring of Municipal properties viz Night Soil Tankers, Hearse Van, Municipal hall, Lohia Maidan etc.

The Citizen's Charter will give an idea as to how one has to approach to various authorities in the Municipality to get their work done promptly.
