Goa Yuva Samwad Yojana (GYSY) Scheme Online Registration, Forms, Plans

Goa Yuva Samwad Yojana is an upcoming scheme in Goa that will offer free voice calling and 3G internet data to eligible youth. Here in this article we are going to share completed details about Goa Yuva Samvad Yojana (GYSY) including eligibility, how to apply, various shops/centers where you can buy the free SIM, application form to get free 3G data and voice calling SIM in Goa, price, various plans, what all will you get with GYSY SIM, start date and end date for GYSY Scheme launch and many other relevant things.

In recent times we have many such free schemes in various parts of India. It all started with Uttar Pradesh when CM Akhil Kumar announced Samajwadi Smartphone Yojana. Under this scheme, Government will be providing free smartphone to eligible candidates if they won the upcoming UP elections in year 2017. Later we saw something similar happened in Punjab. Captain Smart Connect was the scheme that we launched in state and on the similar lines it too promises of delivering 50 lakh smartphones after the Congress party wins upcoming Punjab Elections 2017 (just an update the last date to register to Smart Connect scheme is now extended till Dec 10, 2016. So in case you haven't registered yet then go ahead and register for free anytime). Recently we have seen AP Government to come up with free mobile scheme in Andhra Pradesh. Now its turn for Goa citizens to experience something for free from state Government.

We are not sure about other schemes like whether they will be ever realized or not (or they will remain the election strategy only) but the Goa Yuva Samwad Yojana/Scheme seems to be bit real and possible as they haven't offered something big like a complete free smartphone.

PS: This scheme is also referred to as Free Sim Card Scheme in Goa, or Free Calling and internet scheme in Goa as well. So please don't get confused all of such names belong to one parent scheme only. Services under this scheme are milted to Goa and Maharashtra Circle (Excluding Mumbai).

How to apply for Goa Yuva Samwas Yojana/Scheme: Eligibility, Application Form, Online Registration, Application Fee

In an official statement from Goa CM Laxmikant Parsekar, it was confirmed that GYSY will be launched in association with Vodafone across different states in Goa. Benefited users under this scheme will be provided 100 free minutes for calling and 3GB internet data. People will have doubts related to benefits under GYSY like how many free minutes will they be getting or what is the amount of internet that users will get under Goa Yuva Samwas Yojna so hopefully it will help them clearing there doubts (have summed up everything in a table below).

Below are the eligibility terms and conditions for GYSY scheme:

  • Age of the applicant must be between 16-30 yrs (as on 1st April 2016)
  • He/she must be resident of Goa at least from last 5 years in Goa
  • Must be willing to buy Vodafone SIM
  • Offer will automatically be ceased once the user crosses 30 yrs in term of age

Coming to the registration process then all eligible candidates meeting above terms/conditions, can apply and register their details online with GYSY using below steps:

  • Visit any Vodafone retailer shop and ask for Goa Yuva Samwad SIM. As of now it is not clear whether Government will open exclusive SIM shopping stores for this free calling, internet scheme or can it be bought through existing Vodafone stores also. Best step will be to make it available through existing stores as it will not put any load on Government treasury
  • Fill in all the details in application registration form. It will ask for basic details that you use to fill during any normal SIM purchase
  • Attach proofs for your identity (Aadhar card, Ration Card, Driving License, Voter ID card or anything similar)
  • Once your details are entered and the application form is submitted, usual scrutiny process will happen and you will be issued GYSY SIM card that will have in built free calling and internet facilities
As per some reports Goa Government might also launch exclusive official website for free calling and 3G SIM also. If we are going to have official website of Yuva Samwad Yojana then we will obviously have the option of online registration and buying option there.
