Report No. 96
6. Goa, Daman and Diu (Opinion Poll) Act, 1966 (38 of 1966)
This Act makes provision for ascertaining the views of the electors in the territory of Goa, Daman and Diu on the future status of the territory. The subject matter of the Act falls within the Union List, entry 97 (residuary entry). The opinion of the electors was duly ascertained by the Central Government and further action taken regarding the constitutional status of the territory.
Reasons for recommending repeal.-The object sought to be achieved by the Act has been already achieved and formal continuance of the Act on the statute book serves no useful purpose now. It can therefore be safely repealed.
