Of the proposed 10 lakh square metres for building an IIT campus, the Goa Cabinet on Wednesday marked and diverted a land parcel of 45,000 square metres for religious activity in an attempt to woo Guleli villagers who have objected to the construction of the campus amidst their village. The govt had in July announced the allocation of land in Guleli for the campus, but the villagers were not happy with it.
