Goa Congress chief John Fernandes was also present at the swearing-in ceremony.
Rajasthan Governor Alva was given additional charge of Goa after previous Governor B V Wanchoo resigned on July 4, a day after CBI quizzed him in the VVIP chopper deal case.
Alva had been earlier ‘Goa desk in-charge’ of Congress.
She was a member of Rajya Sabha from 1974 to 1998, and of the Lok Sabha from 1999 to 2004.
She has served as a Union minister and as general secretary of Congress. In 2009, she was appointed the Governor of Uttarakhand, and transferred to Rajasthan in 2012.
