TCC is all set to regulate the 2100 odd street vendors in Trichy City

Quote:
The city corporation has announced the date for the election of town vending committee as May 22.

The civic body has now set stage for regulating street vendors at key commercial areas which are currently reeling under congestion.

The 2100 odd street vendors identified by the civic body can vote to elect the town vending committee. The committee will be responsible for deciding the vending zone in the city where the street vendors would be rehabilitated from the congested locations
.

The Tamil Nadu Street Vending (Regulation and Licensing) Rules, 2015 is aimed at rehabilitating the street vendors who lose their livelihood in the name of encroachment removal during the time of eviction by civic body.

However, the street vendors have also raised apprehension over the process including their relocation and recognition.

While the attempt is to rehabilitate street vendors by providing them with adequate space, relocation to economically less productive areas would take a toll on their business.

"Out of the 2100 vendors identified only 500 have been given identity cards, who can vote during the election," said R Gopal a street vendor at Big Bazaar Street. While the rest are yet to be issued identity cards how will they vote, he questioned.

"In the identity cards that have been issued, there is no mention of place or street where the vendors will be allowed to function. We see it as an attempt to relocate us to other places which may not have commercial value," said B Vijayakumar, a street vendor at Big Bazaar Street.

State Secretary of a street vendors association attached to AITUC A Ansardeen said that, they were against the relocation from Big Bazaar area.

Tamil Nadu Street Vending (Regulation and Licensing) Rules, 2015 speaks about streamlining of street vendors and not their relocation, he added.

"We can only make good sales only where people gather in large number and not in isolated places. There was a similar attempt a few years ago when the city corporation wanted us to move near an empty space near Rockfort railway station. But we refused to move," he said.

A senior official from the corporation said that identity cards will be issued to all the street vendors before election. Moreover vending zones would be identified by the town vending committee which will have members from the street vendors. Hence there will not be any relocation without consultation of the vendors.

Segregation of waste to be made mandatory

Image



In an attempt to strengthen and improve solid waste management in the city, Tiruchi Corporation has drawn up a slew of measures towards ensuring effective segregation of bio-degradable and non-degradable wastes at source.

The new rules, which will come into force on June 5, makes segregation of wastes mandatory and authorises the Corporation to levy penalties on residents and commercial establishments that fail to comply. The Corporation, on its part, has committed to ensuring collection of non-degradable solid wastes on a specific day every week. Pushcarts will be deployed in narrow streets that cannot be accessed by heavy vehicles to collect the waste.

Under the initiative, the Corporation will collect non-degradable wastes from households and other places on Wednesdays. Hence, sanitary workers will not collect degradable wastes from households on that day. Further, the civic body also plans to set up solid waste segregation centres in different parts of the city. Residents, who fail to segregate their solid wastes, will be levied a penalty of Rs. 10. Under the new rules, they are barred from dumping non-degradable wastes in the garbage bins provided in their localities. Violators will be levied a penalty of Rs. 50 the first time. For repeat offences, the penalty will be Rs. 100. All shops and commercial establishments generating more than 20 kg of non-degradable waste a week will have to directly hand them over to the solid waste segregation centres in their wards. Those found dumping the waste in Corporation garbage bins will be levied a fine of Rs. 200 the first time. Repeat offences will attract a penalty of Rs. 500. Residents and traders found dumping their wastes on the street will have to pay penalties ranging from Rs. 250 to Rs. 500.

Residents in apartment complexes should install containers to collect a week’s quantum of non-degradable waste in their premises at their own cost. The solid waste should be handed over to the sanitary workers on Wednesdays. They should also have separate bins for collecting domestic hazardous waste such as sanitary napkins and diapers. Gated communities with more than 25 households should install incinerators to dispose such hazardous waste.

Establishments generating high volume of thermocol waste should hand them over directly at the notified solid waste disposal centres. Persons found dumping plastic and other waste in public places, water bodies and vacant plots will attract penalties ranging from Rs. 500 to Rs. 2,000.

Speaking to The Hindu , Corporation Special Officer-cum-Commissioner N. Ravichandran said the civic body would launch a campaign to sensitise city residents to the new regulations. It would convene meetings with residents welfare associations, residents associations of apartments, traders, members of self help groups and other stakeholders ahead of enforcing the new rules.

On Saturday, he chaired a meeting with residents welfare associations. The response from the participants was good and positive, he said adding that the new rules would be publicised to receive claims and objections before being gazette notified.

Solar panels come as boon to temples

Image

The solar panels set up at a number of temples by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Department, about a couple of years ago, have reduced the power consumption bills.

These units were put up in major temples, including Rockfort Sri Thayumannaswamy Temple, Sri Subramanya Temple in Kumara Vayalur, Sri Mathurakali Amman Temple in Siruvachur near Perambalur and Srirangam Sri Ranaganathaswamy Temple. The capacity of each unit varied between 5 kv to 20 kv depending on the need of the temple and the budgetary support available with each of them.

Official sources told The Hindu that the units have come as a boon to them. Apart from ensuring quality power, the solar units have brought down the power consumption bill. At Sri Subramanya temple in Kumara Vayalur where a 5 kv capacity unit has been set up, the bi-monthly power consumption bill has come down by Rs. 5,000.

The largest beneficiary was Srirangam Sri Ranganathaswamy temple where a 20 kv unit has been set up. Sources said that the bi-monthly power bill has come down from Rs. 1 lakh toRs. 60,000.

Officials said that the investment on solar unit had proved its worth in the last couple of years. “The expenditure on power has been brought down to a great extent and we are able to get back the investment made for the solar energy through this economy,” an official said.

The solar energy is being utilised only between 9 a.m to 5.30 p.m. None of the temples opted for back-up facility, although batteries with back-up would enable power supply during the night. “But, it means an additional expenditure which is nearly equal to the solar panel itself,” says an official. The battery for back-up storage needs periodical maintenance and upkeep which would be an additional expenditure for the temple.

To offer nodal delivery service

Speed Post product portfolio has also been expanded for parcels up to 35 kg in weight. In view of the growth and developments, there was a need to modernise and relocate the NSH closer to the Parcel Hub at the department land at the Tiruchi Head Post Office, the release said.

As part of the Mail Network Optimisation Project carried out by the Department of Posts during the 12th Five Year Plan, the processing centres at Railway Mail Service Points were given a facelift by designating them as National Sorting Hubs and Intra Circle Hubs. They were strengthened with modern infrastructure and softwares to cater the requirements of modern day users , the release added.
