CZA seeks minor changes in Trichy zoological park design

Quote:
While the upcoming zoological park in Trichy has been awaiting funds for next stage of construction, minor revision are being carried out in terms of its design as suggested by concerned authorities.

Proposed in 2010, the zoological park in Trichy spanning 62 hectares will be the fifth zoological park under the zoo authority in Tamil Nadu if completed. Located at a distance of 32 km from the Trichy city towards Chennai, the zoo is coming up in the reserve forest in M R Palayam.

A total Rs 2.4 crore has already been spent to carry out fencing and other preliminary works at the proposed site. Besides erecting four enclosures to accommodate deer species, formation of walkways, zoo entrance, overhead tank and a cloak room have been built.

Work on further developing the zoological park is possible only after funds are sanctioned, said a senior official with the forest department, adding that a proposal from the forest department to carry second phase of work to the tune of Rs7 crore is pending with the state government for sanction of funds.

Meanwhile, Central Zoo Authority of India (CZA) and Zoo Authority of Tamil Nadu had asked for minor revision in the proposal submitted by the forest department.

As per norms the zoo must provide proper waste disposal system for treating both solid and liquid waste generated in each enclosure. "We were asked to make minor changes in the design of cages and installation of effluent treatment plant at the zoological park. Moreover, the built up area in any zoo shall not exceed 25 per cent of the total area of the zoo," said the official.

CZA shall grant recognition with due regard to the interests of protection and conservation of wild life and such standards, norms and other matters has to been followed, added the official.

When TOI contacted state minister for forest Dindigul C Sreenivasan over phone on the delay in work due to lack of funds, he refused to comment on it.

Entertainment and Leisure Activities Planned from 5 Km Stretch b/w Kambrasanpettai Check Dam to Cauvery Bridge

Quote:
The tourism department is planning to create avenues for recreational activities on the Cauvery river bank from Kambarasampettai check dam to Cauvery bridge.

Speaking at the World Tourism Day event in Trichy on Wednesday, tourism minister Vellaimandi N Natarajan said that efforts are being made to promote lesser known places of touristic interest in the state.

The Kambaasampettai check dam drew crowds whenever there is a good flow in the Cauvery. "Stalls will be raised on the banks, for a 5 km stretch from Kambarasampettai to Cauvery bridge, by creating avenues for recreational activity," the minister said and added that a detailed project report has been sent to the state government for approval.

Tamil Nadu is ahead of other states in terms of attracting domestic and foreign tourists and the number have only been increasing over years, he said. Citing tourism department data, he said that 1.17 crore tourists visited the state in the year 2014 which increased to 1.20 crore in 2015 and 1.21 crore in 2016.

Mentioning about the developmental works carried out, the minister said that the tourist spots which witness lesser footfall in Trichy are getting a face lift to promote them.

Earlier on Wednesday morning, he inaugurated the street show which highlighted traditional art forms of the state. It was organised as part of the World Tourism Day 2017 which is celebrated with the theme, Sustainable Tourism- a Tool for Development. The event inaugurated by state tourism minister Vellaimandi N Natarajan at St Vestry School was aimed at creating awareness among people on importance of tourism.

Tourism sector needs pool of high quality guides, says Secretary

The tourism industry should groom a pool of high quality professional tourist guides in the State, said Apurva Varma, Principal Secretary, Tourism, here on Thursday.

“It is essential to have a pool of trained multilingual guides,” he said referring to short-comings that came in the way of tourism promotion in the State.

Making a SWOT analysis of the State, in terms of tourism scenario at a World Tourism Day seminar organised by the Department of Tourism and the Tamil Nadu Travel Mart Society here, he said: “Tamil Nadu has everything except snow. We are the only State to have four international airports; we are the only State to have five UNESCO heritage sites. Besides, Tamil Nadu is also a peaceful State.”

However, “we are poor team players. We do not synergise our efforts,” he rued.

Lack of professional guides and marketing and services of international standard were among the shortcomings. There was also a need to improve infrastructure.

But Tamil Nadu, he pointed out, stood first in the country in attracting the maximum number of tourists for three consecutive years from 2014 to 2016.

Earlier, Tourism Minister Vellamandi N.Natarajan inaugurated the seminar in the presence of P.Kumar, MP, and Collector K.Rajamani.
