These shelters have been constructed at a cost Rs. 2.55 crore

In a significant effort to prevent homeless people from sleeping on roadsides, platforms and beneath bridges, the Tiruchi City Corporation has constructed three night shelters.

They have been constructed at a cost Rs. 2.55 crore with the financial assistance given by the National Urban Livelihood Mission.

A sum of Rs. 40 lakh has been spent for the night shelter near the Railway Junction. The night shelters at Chathiram on Madurai Road and East Boulevard Road have been constructed at an estimate of Rs. 85 lakh each. A sum of Rs. 15 lakh will be spent on providing furniture and electronic gadgets.

The night shelter near the Railway Junction can accommodate 50 persons. The other shelters have been designed to accommodate 100 persons each.

Minister for Tourism Vellamandi N. Natarajan inaugurated the night shelter near the Railway Junction in the presence of Minister for Backward Classes and Minority Welfare S. Valarmathi, Tiruchi Member of Parliament P. Kumar and others.

Corporation Commissioner N. Ravichandran, told The Hindu that the night shelters would be of great help to prevent the homeless people from sleeping on streets. The night shelter at Railway Junction has two floors, while the ground floor would be used to accommodate males, the first floor would be used for females. Besides dining hall and kitchen, ten toilets and four bathrooms have also been constructed.

A Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) has been identified for maintenance of the night shelter. Cots with beds have been arranged on dormitory basis. A caretaker and security guards have also been posted. A sum of Rs. 6 lakh has been earmarked for operation and maintenance of the night shelter for a year.

Mr. Ravichandran said that the homeless people could also use the shelter for cooking as well. If needed, they could use the shelter for staying during the day also.

“A survey reveals that about 40 persons, including a few women, spend the night on platforms and roadsides near the Railway Junction and Central Bus Stand. They have been asked to use the night shelter,” Mr. Ravichandran said.

A Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) has also been set up at the night shelter to monitor those visiting the premises and it was basically to prevent misuse of the shelter.

According to a survey, S. Nagesh, City Engineer, said that there were 468 homeless persons in Tiruchi city. A total of 250 persons could be accommodated in the three night shelters.

From June, separate plastic waste or pay fine

Households and commercial establishments will soon have to exercise caution before handing over their daily waste packet to corporation workers as presence of unsegregated plastic will invite penalties. The fine amount though has been kept at a meagre Rs 10 as the civic body's main aim is to bring about a behavioural change among the citizens.

The move comes in the backdrop of the growing heaps of plastic at the Ariyamangalam dump yard in the city accounting for almost half of the 12 lakh tonnes of garbage. Getting rid of this chunk has been a big challenge for the civic body as people living around grapple with the health hazard. The prime reason for this huge plastic presence has been the haphazard dumping of unsegregated waste generated from across the city over several decades.

Making the landmark announcement, the civic body has now paved the way for a cleaner Trichy. If implemented properly, it would prevent non-biodegradable waste from reaching the dump yard and turning pollutants. The upcoming days will see a series of programmes and awareness drive by the civic body educating people on the need for such an initiative.

"Under the new rule producers are made responsible for collecting waste generated from their products," said corporation commissioner N Ravichandran. Individual and bulk generators like commercial establishments will have to segregate plastic waste at source, he said. The initiative has been adopted from Tirunelveli corporation which bagged the best corporation award from the Union government for successful segregated collection of non-biodegradable waste.

According to the plan, segregated plastic waste from households and bulk generators would be collected once a week. This would be reused for laying roads and other purpose based on the need. "From June 5, we have planned to carry a massive drive every week on a particular day to collect plastic and other non-biodegradable waste," said Ravichandran. "It will be a mass drive having officials from every department in the corporation along with conservancy workers in the field for the collection. By making the initiative a movement, we can reach out to a larger audience in the city," he said.

A resolution is to be passed by the city corporation in this regard while bringing the order into effect from June 5. The remaining 45 days will see a series of programmes to spread the awareness on plastic waste segregation with the participation of stakeholders. There are four micro compost yards in the city covering a ne ward each. While members of women self-help groups make door-to-door collection, they say that a majority of the residents don't segregate plastic waste despite the awareness drive.

Centre to rehabilitate elephants coming up

Image

All infrastructure works have been completed

The Forest Department has completed all infrastructure works inside the Elephant Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre established near Tiruchi.

Civil and other works to rehabilitate captive elephants have been completed.

One of its kind in the central region, the elephant rescue centre has been established inside the reserve forest area at M.R. Palayam adjoining the Tiruchi – Chennai national highway on an area of nearly 20 hectares.

Additional development works have been completed inside the centre including a couple of percolation ponds for rainwater storage. Officials said buildings to accommodate mahouts and ‘cavadis’ (elephant handlers) besides those for veterinary doctor and quarters for the department staff had been completed.

The centre can accommodate seven elephants at a time for which sheds have been constructed. It has a kitchen, hospital, separate walk way for the elephants and shelter for the captive animals besides a Kraal and trenches.

The area has been provided with chain link fence with plantation of taller seedlings inside the centre.

The centre has been established to rehabilitate captive elephants in Tiruchi and its nearby districts and provide immediate medical attention to animals needing them, said District Forest Officer N. Satish.

Established along the highway in a green cover, the centre would act as a transit halt for elephants while being taken to other places such as Vandalur Zoo near Chennai.

He said a proposal has been forwarded to the state government seeking deployment of mahouts and ‘cavadis’ to take care of animals besides a veterinary doctor to treat jumbos. A management plan would be conceived for the centre.

Cold storage facility comes up at Nachikurichi

Image
The 10-tonne capacity facility has been constructed at an estimate of Rs. 48 lakh
Quote:
In a significant attempt to enable farmers get good price for their produce in the market, the Primary Agricultural Cooperative Credit Society (PACCS) at Nachikurichi near here has established a cold storage and ripening centre.

It is the first credit society in the district to have a cold storage facility. The 10 tonne capacity facility has been constructed at an estimate of Rs. 48 lakh.
Of this, the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) has contributed Rs. 44 lakh as a soft loan with the repayment period of eight years. The PACCS has met the remainingRs. 4 lakh from its own fund.

Depending upon the requirement of farmers, the storage facility can be used both for preserving and ripening purposes. The society charges 75 paise per kilo for ripening fruits, particularly banana. For cold storage, it collects 50 paise per kilo.

“It is a gift for progressive farmers to preserve their vegetables until they get good and remunerative prices in the market. We hope that the farmers will utilise the facility,” said K. C. Ravichandran, Joint Registrar of Cooperatives, Tiruchi.

He said the PACCS at Nachikurichi would act as a procurement centre for vegetables and it could be supplied to nine farm fresh outlets in Tiruchi.

Tiruchi Corporation draws up surplus budget

The Tiruchi Corporation Budget for 2017-18 projects a surplus of Rs. 98 lakh.

According to the budget estimates, the total revenue for the fiscal will be Rs. 402.65 crore against the expenditure of Rs. 401.67 crore.

The Corporation has proposed to construct two shopping complexes in the city in an attempt to augment its revenue. It has proposed to construct a shopping mall at Travellers Bungalow on Bharathidasan Road.

A sum ofRs. 20 crore will be spent for the project by availing subsidy under the State Innovation Fund.

The proposal said that there was sufficient space at the complex for constructing a spacious complex.

Since it was located close to the Lawsons Road and Reynolds Road, where a number of residential colonies and commercial complexes were located, the proposed shopping complex is expected to generate good revenue.

The second shopping complex will be built at 7th cross in Thillai Nagar. A sum ofRs. 12 crore will be spent for the project with the grant of State Innovation fund.

The Local Planning Authority had already granted project approval for the shopping complex on August 27, 2015.

N. Ravichandran, Commissioner cum Special Officer, told The Hindu that the shopping complexes were aimed at improving financial position of the Corporation. The Travellers Bungalow complex had 76,230 square feet of space.

However, it was under utilised for so long. The Detailed Project Reports for the shopping complexes would be prepared shortly for getting administrative sanction.

Mr. Ravichandran said a sum of Rs. 12 crore had been earmarked for laying of new roads and formation of footpath during the current fiscal. New roads will be laid to the length of 17.68 km. About Rs. 2 crore will be spent on improving and proper maintenance of public parks at Sanjeevi Nagar, Devar Nagar, Diraviyam Pillai Park, Dr. Renganathan Park, Pookkulam Park, Rengasamy Park and Bhagavathipuram Park.

In addition to this, he said that it has been proposed to develop roads to the length of 37.69 km along with storm water facility by availing funds under the Tamil Nadu Urban Road Infrastructure Development Fund during 2017-18.

Under the General Fund, it was proposed to upgrade various roads to the length of 77 km at an estimate of Rs. 10.50 crore.
