Modern abattoir to come up at Gandhi Market soon

The Directorate of Municipal Administration (DMA) has granted technical and administrative sanction for the construction of modern abattoir at Gandhi Market.

The project, aimed at ending the practice of slaughtering goats for meat in open places, will be implemented at a cost of Rs.3.57 crore. While the Ministry of Food Processing of the Central government will contribute 47 per cent of the total cost as grant, the State government will contribute 25 per cent, and the remaining 28 per cent will be borne by the Tiruchirappalli City Corporation (TCC).

Once established, the TCC will join a small group of Corporations in the country to have modern abattoirs. At present, slaughtering of animals for food purposes is being carried at Gandhi Market, which houses an outdated and unscientific slaughter house.

Similarly, in some places, sheep, goats and chicken are slaughtered in front of the meat shops in violation of rules and regulations.

The project is expected to follow the guidelines of the Code of Hygienic Practices for Fresh Meat prescribed by the World Health Organisation. M.Vijayalakshmi, Corporation Commissioner, told The Hindu that the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) and the Airport Authority of India (AAI) had issued No Objection Certificate (NOC) to the abattoir at Gandhi Market. The Detailed Project Report (DPR) had also been prepared. Tender would shortly be floated for the project.

About 500 sheep or goats could be slaughtered at the abattoir per day. The project, expected to be completed in the next financial year, would ensure clean environment in and around meat stalls. S.Nagesh, City Engineer-In-Charge, said the second modern abattoir of the city would be set up at Panjappur, for which land had been identified. Preparation of DPR was underway. The AAI and the TNPCB had issued No Objection Certificate (NOC) to the Panjappur project too.

“Set up regulated market”

The Tiruchi and Karur Districts Flower Growers’ Association has appealed to the district administration to establish regulated markets at Srirangam and Gandhi Market areas to enable flower growers directly sell their produce.

A representation containing this demand was submitted to the district administration by a group of members of the association during the weekly public grievances redress meeting held at the Collectorate here on Monday.

The representation said akin to regulated markets having been established at Tiruchendurai and Thuraiyur for the benefit of banana, cotton, and onion growers to sell their produces, a similar market should be set up at Srirangam and Gandhi Market where flower bazaar were functioning to enable flower growers sell their produce directly.

Gandhi Market remains a puzzle for city corporation

Image

Even as the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation’s plans of shifting sections of wholesale traders out of the Gandhi Market has failed to take off, chaotic traffic in and around the market continues to cause hardship to road users.

Acute congestion, caused by indiscriminate encroachments, dumping of solid wastes, and erratic parking of goods vehicles prevails around the market almost right through the day giving a harrowing time for road users.

The Thanjavur Road along the market, the Vellamandi Road and the Sub-Jail Road continue to remain heavily congested and traffic police posted around the market struggle to regulate the traffic.

The market, established in 1940, houses over 725 permanent and pavement shops spread over an area of about six acres, attracting thousands of traders and consumers every day.

The market caters not only to the city but also to retail traders from several small and big towns in the neighbouring districts.

Taking cognisance of the congestion around the market, the civic body had a couple of years ago planned to shift the onion and banana wholesale markets to Sengulam Colony market and Viragupettai overhead water tank complex. But both the moves failed to take off because of opposition from traders.

Although the police opened up the Nelpettai Road about three years ago to divert Tiruverumbur/Thuvakudi-bound buses through it, the congestion had not eased.

Apart from the use of roadsides by traders, dumping of solid wastes, especially along the Thanjavur Road and behind the market had been adding to the woes of motorists.

The site where huge garbage bins had been placed along Thanjavur Road for the corporation vehicles to collect the solid wastes generated from the market every day had turned a bottleneck. The dumping of wastes from the market at the spot continues to attract a large number of stray cattle, posing a danger to motorists.

The civic body’s sporadic drives against impounding stray cattle and the ban on rearing cattle without permission had failed to check the menace. A foul smell pervades the area.

Goods vehicles occupy the roadsides on both lanes of the Vellamandi Road often resulting in traffic snarls. The Sub-Jail Road in the city which was thrown open for traffic a few years ago remains under the grip of encroachers.

“The corporation and traffic police need to come up with a comprehensive plan of action to streamline and regulate traffic around the market. As the volume of vehicles increase by the day, the situation is going from bad to worse,” said R. Gopalakrishnan, a city resident.

Tenders called for new market at Kallikudi

Image

The Tamil Nadu State Agricultural Marketing Board has called for tenders for the construction of a central market for vegetables, fruits, and flowers at Kallikudi, on the outskirts of the city.

The establishment of the market is expected to decongest the Gandhi Market, one of the biggest markets in the State, in the city. The project was announced in July 2014 by the former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa at a function in Srirangam.

The central market to come up on 10 acres of land at Kallikudi, off the Tiruchi-Madurai National Highway, about 15 km from here, is expected to emerge as a hub for vegetables, fruits, and flowers markets.

Land acquired

The land for the market had been acquired already, official sources said.

The project assumes significance in the wake of the long-pending demand for shifting the wholesale section of the Gandhi Market to the outskirts of the city.

Over the past couple of decades, the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation had made unsuccessful plans to shift the market to the outskirts, including a site at Ariyamangalam.

Subsequently, the civic body proposed the shifting of sections of the wholesale trade to different places, including the Viragupettai, Sengulam, and Panchapur. But traders have not been enthused by the idea.

The corporation had drawn up a plan to renovate the Gandhi Market, established in 1940, in a phased manner. Situated over 6.5 acres of land with over 1,500 shops, including platform shops, the market is plagued by poor infrastructure and amenities. But the plan is yet to be implemented.

திருச்சியில் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடியை தவிர்க்க வெல்லம், வெங்காய மண்டிகள் அறிவிக்கப்பட்ட இடத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்யப்படுமா?

திருச்சி நகரில் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடிக்கு காரணமாக திகழும் வெல்லம் மற்றும் வெங்காய மண்டிகளை அறிவிக்கப்பட்ட இடத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்ய வேண்டும் என பொதுமக்கள் கோரிக்கை வைத்து உள்ளனர்.

போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி
திருச்சி நகரில் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி நாளுக்கு நாள் அதிகரித்துக்கொண்டே செல்கிறது. பெருகி வரும் வாகனங்கள், ஒருங்கிணைந்த பஸ் நிலையம் அமைக்கப்படாதது போன்றவையும், அனைத்து வாகனங்களும் திருச்சி நகருக்குள் எப்போதும் வந்து செல்வதாலும் திருச்சி நகரில் அடிக்கடி போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி ஏற்பட்டு வருகிறது.

வெல்லம்-வெங்காய மண்டி
போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி பிரச்சினையை தீர்ப்பதற்கு வசதியாக திருச்சி நகரின் மையப்பகுதியான காந்தி மார்க்கெட் அருகில் அமைந்து உள்ள வெல்ல மண்டியையும், வெங்காய மண்டியையும் வேறு இடத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்வது என முடிவு செய்யப்பட்டது. திருச்சியில் உள்ள வெல்ல மண்டியில் இருந்துதான் தமிழகத்தின் பல மாவட்டங்களுக்கும், வெளி மாநிலங்களுக்கும் வெல்லம் அனுப்பப்பட்டு வருகிறது. இதற்காக லாரிகள் பகல், இரவு என பாராது 24 மணி நேரமும் வெல்லத்தை ஏற்றி செல்வதற்காக இந்த பகுதிக்கு வந்த வண்ணம் உள்ளன.

இதன் அருகிலேயே சப்-ஜெயில் ரோடு என அழைக்கப்படும் பகுதியில் வெங்காய மண்டி அமைந்து உள்ளது. வெளியூர்களில் இருந்து வரும் வெங்காயத்தை சாலைகளில் கொட்டி ஏலம் விடுவது, அவற்றை மூட்டை கட்டி லாரிகளில் ஏற்றுவது என எல்லாமே இந்த சாலையில் தான் நடக்கிறது. பல ஆண்டு காலம் போக்குவரத்தே நடைபெறாமல் இருந்த இந்த சாலையை, திருச்சி மாநகர போலீஸ் கமிஷனராக கருணாசாகர் பணியாற்றியபோது மீட்டு பொதுமக்களின் பயன்பாட்டுக்கு கொண்டு வந்தார். தற்போது இந்த சாலையின் வழியாக டவுன் பஸ்கள் செல்கின்றன. வெங்காயம் ஏற்ற வரும் லாரிகள், வேன்கள், தட்டு ரிக்ஷாக்கள், இவற்றுக்கு இடையேதான் வாகன போக்குவரத்தும் பல்வேறு நெருக்கடிகளுக்கு இடையே நடந்து வருகிறது.

ஜி.கார்னருக்கு மாற்ற முடிவு
இந்த பிரச்சினைகளை தீர்ப்பதற்காக வெல்ல மண்டியையும், வெங்காய மண்டியையும் திருச்சி-சென்னை பைபாஸ் சாலையில் பொன்மலை ஜி.கார்னர் பகுதியில் உள்ள மாநகராட்சி நவீன மாட்டிறைச்சி கூடம் அருகில் உள்ள 6 ஏக்கர் நிலத்திற்கு மாற்றம் செய்வது என மாநகராட்சி கூட்டத்தில் தீர்மானம் நிறைவேற்றப்பட்டது. இந்த தீர்மானத்தின்படி மேயர், ஆணையர் மற்றும் அதிகாரிகள் வெல்லமண்டி, வெங்காய மண்டி அமைய உள்ள இடத்தையும் நேரடியாக பார்வையிட்டு ஆய்வு செய்தனர்.

அவர்கள் பார்வையிட்டு ஆய்வு செய்து ஒரு ஆண்டு காலம் கடந்து விட்டது. ஆனால் வெல்ல மண்டியும், வெங்காய மண்டியும் இன்னும் மாற்றம் செய்யப்படவில்லை. மாற்றும் திட்டம் என்ன ஆனது? ஏன் இன்னும் இந்த திட்டத்தை அமல்படுத்த வில்லை என்பதும் வெளியிடப்படவில்லை. அப்படியே கிடப்பில் போடப்பட்டு விட்டது.
பொன்மலை ஜி கார்னர் பகுதிக்கு வெங்காய மண்டியும், வெல்ல மண்டியும் மாற்றப்பட்டு விட்டால் சரக்கு இறக்குவதற்காகவோ அல்லது ஏற்றுவதற்காகவோ லாரிகள் மற்றும் வேன் போன்ற வாகனங்கள் திருச்சி நகருக்குள் வரவேண்டிய அவசியமே இல்லாமல் போய்விடும். பைபாஸ் சாலை வழியாக வந்து புதிய இடத்தில் சரக்குகளை ஏற்றி இறக்கி விட்டு அப்படியே தாங்கள் செல்லவேண்டிய இடங்களுக்கு சென்று விடலாம்.

லாரிகள் வர தடை விதிக்க வேண்டும்

திருச்சி நகருக்குள் லாரிகள் வரவில்லை என்றால் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடியும் ஏற்படாது. உயிர்ப்பலி வாங்கும் விபத்துக்களில் இருந்தும் மக்கள் தப்பிக்க முடியும். திருச்சி நகருக்குள் நடக்கும் சாலை விபத்துக்களில் பெரும்பாலானவை லாரிகள் மூலமே நிகழ்ந்து உள்ளதாக புள்ளி விவரங்கள் கூறுகின்றன. விபத்துக்களில் இருந்து மக்களை பாதுகாப்பதற்காக சென்னை, மதுரை, கோவை போன்ற பெரிய நகரங்களில் இருப்பது போல் பகல் நேரங்களில் லாரிகளை திருச்சி நகருக்குள் அனுமதிப்பதற்கும் தடை விதிக்க வேண்டும். மதுரையில் காலை 6 மணியில் இருந்து இரவு 10 மணி வரை லாரிகள் உள்ளே வரக்கூடாது என்பது கண்டிப்பான விதிமுறையாகும். இதனை போலீசார் செம்மையாக அமல் படுத்தி வருகிறார்கள்.

அதைப்போன்று திருச்சி நகரிலும் இரவு 10 மணியில் இருந்து காலை 6 மணி வரை மட்டுமே லாரிகளை வருவதற்கு அனுமதித்தும், மற்ற நேரங்களில் லாரிகளை அனுமதிக்காமல் தடை விதித்தும் மாநகர போக்குவரத்து போலீசார் நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும் என்பதே திருச்சி மாநகர மக்களின் கோரிக்கையாகும்.

New market to come up at Kallikudi

Image

The establishment of Central Market for Vegetables, Fruits, and Flowers, announced by Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa on Monday, is expected to help decongest the Gandhi Market, one of the biggest markets in the State, in the city.

The Central Market to be established on a 9.79-acre plot on the outskirts of the city at Kallikudi, off the Tiruchi-Madurai National Highway, about 15 km from here, could emerge as a hub for vegetables, fruits, and flowers markets in the city, official sources said.

The market would be established at a cost of Rs. 77.06 crore with financial assistance under the Rural Infrastructure Development Fund of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development, sources told The Hindu here on Tuesday. According to the sources, the land for the market had been acquired and would be set up through the Tiruchi Market Committee.

Going by the Chief Minister’s announcement, the market would have all modern infrastructure with 1,000 shops, a cold storage of 2,000 tonne capacity, sorting and grading yards and wide internal roads to facilitate easy movement of trucks loading and unloading goods at the facility.

The announcement comes in the wake of the long-pending demand for shifting the wholesale section of the Gandhi Market to a spacious location on the outskirts of the city. However, there was no indication yet whether the wholesale traders of the Gandhi Market would be asked to shift to the new facility. With the project being drawn up by the Agri Business and Marketing Department, the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation sources have no clue on whether the wholesale traders would be shifted to Kallikudi. “We do not know whether the Gandhi Market traders are to be shifted. But the idea is to decongest the Gandhi Market and the new facility could emerge as a hub for wholesale trade in future,” a senior official said.

He pointed out that the corporation had been trying to shift sections of the wholesale trade to different places including the Viragupettai, Sengulam, and Panchapur. “Ideally, we would like to have only the retail market here,” he said.

The corporation had recently drawn up a plan to renovate the Gandhi Market, established in 1940, in a phased manner over the next few years. Spread over 6.5 acres of land with over 1,500 shops, including platform shops, the market has poor infrastructure and amenities. Shops are in a dilapidated condition and even slight showers make the area slushy. Lack of hygiene had been a perennial problem. Different sections of the market spills over the Madurai Road, Thanjavur Road, Nelpettai Road, East Boulevard Road, and Sub-Jail Road, and have become a major traffic bottleneck in the city.

The corporation, the sources said, would go ahead with its renovation plans as per a master plan.

Traders prefer wholesale and retail markets to be together

Given the Tiruchirapalli City Corporation’s recent efforts to shift wholesale market, traders continue to pitch for establishing an integrated market closer to the city to give them better access to retail market.

Reacting to the Chief Minister’s announcement on establishing a central market at Kallikudi, traders’ representatives reiterated their position that wholesale markets should not be shifted far too away from the retail sections.

“Ideally, we want the authorities to establish an integrated market possibly at Ariyamangalam, which is closer to the city. We have been suggesting the establishment of the market by reclaiming a part of the Ariyamangalam garbage dump yard or along the Tiruchi-Chennai Bypass. The site at Kallikudi, though better than Panchapur, is far too away,” said U.S. Karuppiah, president, Tiruchi Gandhi Market All Traders’ Association.

Mr. Karuppiah contends that moving the wholesale section far too away from the retail market could lead to loss of business for traders. He even suggests the redevelopment of the Gandhi Market with better amenities to decongest the area.

A representative of the fruits merchants’ association too felt that Kallikudi was more than 15 km away and could add up to the transportation costs for traders. Besides, the wholesale and retail sections should be located together or at least close to each other, he said.

A. Nagarajan, president, Tamil Nadu Horticulture Crop Producers’ Association, conceded that farmers were facing problems in transporting their produce to the Gandhi Market given the traffic congestion. Wholesale trade could be moved to the new facility at Kallikudi but retailers would not relish moving there, he said.

Traders rotting in a cramped banana market

Image

Cramped for space and lacking in amenities, ‘Vazhakkai Mandi,’ the wholesale banana market functioning adjacent to Gandhi Market in the city, cries for better infrastructure.

Although the market is one of the biggest in the region from where retail traders from different districts buy the fruit in auctions every day, it has been functioning with primitive infrastructure amidst poor sanitary conditions down the years.

With Tiruchi and neighbouring Karur districts being major banana-growing districts in the State, over 65 banana traders operate out of the market.

The market attracts about 15,000 to 20,000 banana bunches every day and the arrivals are auctioned and transported every evening. Yet, the auctions are held at a small open space where all banana bunches have been off loaded, hardly leaving any space for movement of people.

“Lack of space in the market forces us to offload and auction our produce right outside the market on the East Boulevard Road. The auction centre has no roof and only traders have now put up a temporary thatched roof (pandal) to protect the fruits from the scorching sun. The corporation has not provided any amenities,” says a trader who does not want to be identified.

Traders and farmers complain over the poor sanitary condition at the market. The adjoining fish market and a drain flowing nearby leave an overpowering stench. Traders claim the corporation does not even provide sanitary workers to clear the organic waste generated at the market. Traders themselves have hired 10 workers to remove the garbage generated in the market and dump it outside for the corporation vehicles to transport them to the garbage dump.

A few months ago, the corporation had proposed to shift the banana market to the Viragupettai overhead tank complex by building a commercial complex at the site. However, there has been no progress on the decision so far. The move met with resistance from traders.

Sources in the corporation pointed out that the civic body has decided to renovate the Gandhi Market, which was established 70 years ago, for providing better amenities.
