SoI takes up ‘Biggest survey’ on mapping

Survey of India has taken up a special project on mapping the country using modernised technique at an estimate of Rs. 1,800 crore. This is considered the ‘biggest survey’ to be taken up so far across the world, said Swarna Subba Rao, Surveyor General of India, Survey of India (SoI).

In his acceptance address after receiving “IGS – Prof. B.M.T Life Time Achievement Award” at a function organised by the Department of Geography of Bharathidasan University and Indian Geographical Society, Chennai, here on Saturday, Dr. Rao said development in GIS technology facilitated SoI to release maps in digital format.

The current project on mapping would be on the scale 1:10,000 which meant that minute details right from platform, roads,and details of transformers would be available.

SoI had taken up mapping on 6,000-km coastal boundary with .5m contour interval which meant concrete data on the coast.

This would bring about efficient management and protection of coastal areas besides evolving and implementing precautionary steps prior to a storm and Tsunami, he said.

Major TN cities to focus on cost-effective modes of transport

In a couple of years major cities in Tamil Nadu will have clean, efficient and cost effective modes of transport with major thrust on non-motorised transport. This includes bicycle tracks, greenways, pedestrian zones and footpaths.

Five cities — Coimbatore, Madurai, Salem, Tiruppur and Tiruchi— unveiled their plans at a workshop on Sustainable Cities through Transport.

“We have developed plans to make walking and cycling safer, easier and convenient,” said K.P. Munnusamy, State Minister of Municipal Administration and Rural Development, Law, Courts and Prisons.

Sustainable Cities through Transport is an effort to forge such a vision and ensure that ‘we make good decisions as we expand urban transport systems to support the development Tamil Nadu,” he said.

“We are aware of the need to construct wide, continuous footpaths along all major cities and towns. We also need to carve out space for cyclists in the form of continuous, shaded cycle tracks that make it safe to travel,” he said.

The bed strength of the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital, attached to the K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College in the city, will cross the 1,000-mark once the new super speciality block is commissioned.

The super speciality block, which is set to be opened soon, will add 440 beds to the hospital which has 660 beds. Recently, a maternity block with 180 beds was opened at the hospital.

Twelve super speciality departments will be housed at the new block being established at a cost of Rs.100 crore, including Rs. 55 crore for the construction of the ground plus six-floor building and Rs. 45 crore for equipment.

The new block will house the departments of orthopaedics and radio diagnosis, cardiology, and cardiothoracic surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, nephrology and urology, paediatric and plastic surgery, medical and surgical gastroenterology, medical and surgical oncology. Each of these departments will have bout 30 beds each. The new block will have eight major operation theatres and two smaller ones.

“The civil works on the new building was nearing completion. The Public Works Department which has constructed the building is likely to hand over the building to us by the end of this month. Necessary medical equipment are to be installed soon, paving the way for the inauguration of the block,” said P. Karkuzhali, Dean, K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College. Additional doctors and staff would be posted depending on the requirement, she added.

Dr. Karkuzhali, who took charge recently, said the establishment of super specialty departments would help the college to start more postgraduate courses. The college has applied for permission to the Medical Council of India for starting MD in pathology with two seats from the next academic year.

She indicated that a proposal for construction of a medicine and surgery block would be drawn up. With the strengthening of the departments and infrastructure, the hospital would be able to serve more number of patients. A waiting shed for visitors would be built near the new maternity block soon, she added.

Death rates due to accidents on the decline in Trichy

Trichy: The number of deaths due to road accidents has come down from 174 (2011), 147 (2012) to 127 in 2013, a reduction of 17%, said Trichy police commissioner Shalilesh Kumar Yadav while participating in the 25th annual traffic awareness programme held at the Bishop Heber College on Monday.

Yadav said that the decrease in number was achieved thanks to the involvement and participation of the students of National Cadet Corps (NCC) and National Service Scheme (NSS) in addition to field help from the volunteers of traffic warden wing.

After seeing good results in 2011 and 2012, the students' involvement was increased through colleges' participation and the concerted effort has given good results, Yadav told a meeting of few thousand students who had assembled on the Bishop Heber College premises.

"The students have the capacity and calibre to reach out to a large number of people and their leadership qualities were put into greater use. By next year, we will certain bring down the death rate by 40% before finally making Trichy roads death-free," the commissioner said.

An estimated population of 2.47 lakh children in the age group of 0-5 was targeted for coverage under the campaign. Of this, 1.59 lakh children were from rural areas. District health officials said the campaign had evoked good response right from morning and nearly 90 per cent of the targeted population was covered during the day.

The vaccine was administered through 1,665 centres in the district, including 230 in Tiruchi Corporation limits. Over 6,500 government employees and volunteers were deployed to carry out the campaign. Mobile teams also administered the drops at railway stations, bus stands, places of worship and toll plazas on the national highways to cover children in transit.

‘Introduce meter autos’

The Tamil Nadu Consumer Movement urged the State government to introduce meter fare autorickshaw in Tiruchi city too, on the lines of Chennai city.

A resolution to this effect was adopted at a meeting of the movement held here recently.

Another resolution complained about the quality of drinking water being supplied in ward number 33. This was brought to the notice of the authorities concerned, but action had not been taken.

The Tiruchirapalli City Corporation should take steps for ensuring protected drinking water in this ward. J. Selvaraj, president of the movement, presided over the programme.

Detective dogs to get new house

Detective dogs of Tiruchi district police will be housed in a new kennel under construction inside the sprawling District Armed Reserve campus at Subramaniapuram here.

The dog squad consists of five canines: three “trackers” for crime detection and two for detecting explosive substances and for use during VIP visits. The new kennel and the office building for the handlers of the sniffer dogs are being constructed by the Tamil Nadu Police Housing Corporation at a cost of Rs.25 lakh.

The construction of the kennel which will have separate rooms for each detective dog is expected to be completed by April, said police sources.

The youngest among the lot are one-year-old ‘Arjun’ and ‘Spark’ which were inducted into the service after undergoing specialised training in crime detection, the sources said.
