Goa Government has accepted voluntary retirement application by Elvis Gomes. Elvis will be relieved from service tomorrow.

Gomes is likely to join politics and contest state assembly elections.

Elvis Gomes who is the Director of Department of Urban development, had served a notice to the government in July 2016 seeking voluntary retirement. One of the senior officers of the Goa government, Elvis was to be inducted into the Indian Administrative Service (IAS). Elvis is also the president of Goa Football Association (GFA).

Speculations have been doing rounds in the Goan circles that Gomes would join politics in the days to come.
