Welcome to Goa, India

(ICT4SD - 2018)


Digital technology affects the lives of people the world over in many ways. ICT are a key factor not only at the macro level in the process of globalization but also at the micro level where the increased use of mobile phones, for instance, has changed communication patterns all over the world. In order to alleviate and to promote Indian ICT industry, the Government of India had set up a National Task Force on ICT and Software Development to examine the feasibility of strengthening the industry along with providing major fiscal incentives. India aims to transform India into a truly developed and empowered society by 2020. However, to achieve this growth, the sector has to continue to re-invent itself and strive for that extra mile, through new business models, global delivery, partnerships and transformation. In order to recognize and reward the extraordinary performance as well achievements by ICT and allied industries, Communally we are organising Third International Conference on ICT4SD 2018 in concurrent ICT Awards The Excellencia 2018 during 30 - 31 August, 2018 at Goa, INDIA.

How to reach Goa

Goa is very well-connected by rail, road and air. But one of the reasons why the beach state is so popular not just among foreign travelers but also Indian tourists is the freedom its local transport offers. Every hotel, small and large, has a tie-up with a scooter/bike/car rental, a service that isn't very common in other states. All you need is a driver's license and Goa is yours! Two-wheelers are particularly popular among locals too. Motorcycle taxis, which transport a single pillion rider, are the cheapest mode of local transport.

By Air

Goa International Airport at Dabolim near Vasco da Gama is the state's only airport. It caters to domestic and international air services with at least two dozen arrivals from India and middle-eastern countries such as Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Muscat, Doha, Dubai and Kuwait. Jet Airways, GoAir, Indigo, Air India, Qatar Airways and Air Arabia are among the major airlines that have scheduled flights to Goa. Several tourists from the UK and Russia avail of charter air services to Goa. In January 2016, the ministry of civil aviation relaxed the rules for charter airlines. Earlier chartered aircraft had to return empty after dropping off their passengers. With the change in the policy, these aircraft need not fly out with the same set of passengers thus cutting operating costs for airlines and reducing the tour package costs for travelers.

By Rail

The South Western Railway and the Konkan Railway lines service the state of Goa. The former is a colonial era line that connects the port town of Vasco with Belgaum, Hubli etc. The more recent (and a pleasant) addition is the Konkan Railway line that was constructed in the '90s and connects Margao to cities along India's western coast. Before the Konkan Railway line became operational, roadways were the most preferred mode of transport for people traveling from cities along the west coast, such as Mumbai. Panaji, the state capital, does not have a railway station. Madgaon and Vasco Da Gama are two major railway junctions in Goa.

By Road

With the absence of a regular train service within the state, much of Goa depends upon privately-operated buses and government-run buses maintained by the Kadamba Transport Corporation to travel from one place to another. Even though the buses connect major towns and remote villages, several Goans depend on private transport to get around. Four National Highways -- some of the narrowest in the country -- run through Goa: NH66 connects Goa to Mumbai in the north and Mangalore to the south. NH-4A connects Panaji to Belgaum in the east and other cities such as Bangalore, Kolhapur etc. NH-366 connects NH-66 to Mormugao Port from Cortalim. Constructed to ease pressure on NH 366 for traffic towards Dabolim Airport and Vasco da Gama is the brand new four-lane NH-566 that connects Mormugao Port to NH-66 at Verna via Dabolim Airport.
