Known popularly as Anil-bab, he was the eldest son of late Vasudevrao Salgaoncar and brother of Shivanand and Dattaraj Salgaoncar.

Salgaoncar, known as a dashing and outspoken personality, was also active in politics.

After playing a behind-the-curtain role for several decades, he had successfully contested 2007 Assembly election from Sanvordem constituency.

As an independent MLA, Anilbab had defeated Vinay Tendulkar, the Goa BJP president today, by nearly 7000 votes.

His sons Sameer and Arjun are also active in politics.

He is survived by his wife Lakshmi and two married daughters – Chandana and Purnima – besides his sons.

He caused the Goa Govt. crores of rupees with the 'River princess' removal from the sea shore. It was his blunder and the cunning guy made Goa Govt. (people of Goa) pay for his misadventure. 'Maat pita, etc' all that so-called social service was aimed at his second son wining elections from Pernem somewhere which ultimately backfired not that they cared, the money spent was probably a drop in the ocean for the Salgaonkars.

May the soul of Anil Salgaoncar rest in peace. After the defeat of Arjun Salgaoncar in sanvordem constituency, I find no development taking place at Collem Village in Goa. Most of the roads from collem to Shigao are full of potholes.
