The salt pans should be transferred and brought under the agriculture department so we can boost the salt production in the state with help of existing agriculture schemes. As if now the salt pans in Goa come under the industries department, Agriculture Minister Ravi Naik said.

All salt pans in Goa are monitored by the Salt Commission in Rajasthan. Locally, they are monitored by the Industries department. I will speak with Industries Ministers to bring the salt pans under the ambit of the Agriculture department, Ravi said.
