No end to wait for metered autos

Trichy: Autos in Chennai have been charging commuters according to meter since the state government revised fares following a Supreme Court directive. New meters have been provided or old meters calibrated according to the new fare structure in Chennai, whereas district administrations elsewhere in the state have refused to follow the Chennai model despite frequent pleas from commuters and auto unions.

In Trichy, hapless commuters are being forced to shell out money as per the whims and fancies of auto drivers. Meanwhile, in cities like Coimbatore and Madurai auto unions have woken up to the fact that they face a serious image crisis and commuters are shunning them whenever possible. In both cities, the advent of call taxis has seriously dented the business of auto drivers. With the district administration sleeping over their pleas to revise the fare structure, unions in these cities have on their own announced a new fare structure. Union autos will follow the new fare structure from January 1.

However, in Trichy, auto-rickshaw unions including CITU, AITUC, Labour Progressive Front (LPF) and Desiya Murpokku Labour Union are yet to take a call. Union leaders say they are waiting for the district administration to decide on the matter. However, union leaders say they are willing to adopt a fare structure if they could charge Rs 30 for the first 1.5 km and Rs 15 for every subsequent km. The basic fare in Chennai, mandated by the state government, is Rs 25 for the first 1.8 km and Rs 12 for every subsequent km. However, AITU in Madurai had announced a fare structure where autos will charge Rs 30 for the first 4 km.

A L Fakruddin Babu, district general secretary of CITU Auto-rickshaw Drivers' Association, said their union in Trichy was yet to take any decision in this connection. In Coimbatore, it was CITU that tool the initiative for a new fare structure. "We are expecting the district administration to call for a meeting to fix auto fares. As of now, we have not taken a decision in this matter," Babu told TOI. LPF, affiliated to DMK, also offered the same opinion. "Though we welcome the auto meter fare, we will support a decision agreed taken by all the unions. But we are yet to decide on the matter," said Venkatachalam, secretary of LPF auto union. Desiya Murpokku Labour Union affiliated to DMDK said the system has to be put in place in Trichy for the sake of auto drivers. "Our business has been affected due to share autos and private city buses. But we want the fare to be higher than in Chennai because we get only short trips," one of the union leaders claimed.

S Pushpavanam, secretary, Consumer Protection Council, Tamil Nadu, said the state government should come forward to implement metered auto fares in all the districts. "After implementing the fare in Chennai, the government is dilly-dallying on introducing meters in other cities. The guidelines for fare revision should be communicated by the transport commissioner to all the regional transport officers. But auto rickshaw unions cannot introduce new fares on their own," he said.

A Pandian, regional transport officer, Srirangam, Trichy claimed that the scheme will be extended to other cities once it is successful in Chennai. "In Chennai, auto fare rules are strictly being implemented. Autos that do not have meters are seized. Once the system becomes effective in Chennai, auto-rickshaw drivers in other cities will realize the consequences of violating the government order. After that, the system can be introduced in rest of the districts," Pandian told TOI.

Interestingly, motor vehicle inspectors from other districts have been deputed to Chennai to seize erring auto-rickshaws. Nearly 1,000 auto-rickshaws have been impounded for violations in Chennai so far.

சி: உணவுச்சங்கிலியை உறுதிப்படுத்தும் வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சிக்கு மேலூரில் 8.67 கோடி ரூபாயில் அமைக்கப்பட்டு வரும் "மெகா' சைஸ் பூங்கா பொங்கலுக்கு திறக்க திட்டமிட்டு வனத்துறை அதிகாரிகள் தீவிரமாக பணிகளை செய்து வருகின்றனர்.
பூமிப்பந்தில் ஏரளமான ஜீவராசிகள் வாழ்கின்றன. சிறு சிறு பூச்சிகள் புழுக்கள் சிறு பிராணிகள் முதல் பெரிய விலங்குகள் வரை ஒன்றை ஒன்று உண்டு உணவுச்சங்கிலி தொடரில் முக்கியப்பங்கு வகிக்கின்றன. அந்த வகையில் சிறுவர்களால் பட்டாம்பூச்சி என்றழைக்கப்படும் வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி உணவுச்சங்கிலியில் முக்கியத்துவம் பெறுகிறது.
உலகமயமாக்கலில் பெருகி வரும் நகரிய வாழ்க்கையால் சிறு பூச்சி குருவி போன்றவை அழியும் நிலையில் உள்ளன. மொபைல்போன் கோபுர டவர்களால் சிட்டுக்குருவி இனம் முக்கால்வாசி அழிந்துவிட்டது.
பறவை பாம்பு தவளை போன்றவற்றுக்கு உணவாகவும் மகரந்தசேர்க்கைக்கு உறுதுணையாகவும் இருக்கும் வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி இனத்தை காக்க காவிரித்தீவான ஸ்ரீரங்கம் மேலூரில் வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சிக்கு மெகா சைஸ் பூங்கா அமைக்கப்பட்டு வருகிறது. கடந்த ஆண்டு செப்டம்பர் 13ம் தேதி தமிழக முதல்வர் ஜெயலலிதா அடிக்கல் நாட்டினார்.
மேலூர் அருகே மேல் அணைக்கட்டு பகுதியில் 25 ஹெக்டேர் வனத்துறைக்கு சொந்தமான வனப்பகுதியில் 10 ஹெக்டேர் பரப்பில் வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி பூங்கா அமைக்கப்படுகிறது. அங்கு 8.67 கோடி ரூபாய் மதிப்பீட்டில் பணிகள் நடக்கிறது. மரங்களாலான குழந்தைகள் பூங்கா வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி வெட்டுக்கிளி தவளை தட்டான்பூச்சி போன்ற சிறு உயிரினங்களின் மாதிரி சிலை வடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.
வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சிகள் உணவுக்காக தேனீந்தும் மலர்களை தரும் சின்யா பென்டாஸ் டிரைக்ட்ரி புலும்பாகோ கோபி அஸ்காப்பியா போன்றவை உள்ளிட்ட பல்வேறு தாவரங்கள் வளர்க்கப்படும். வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி புழுக்கள் உண்ணத்தகுதியான காட்டாமணக்கு போன்ற செடிகள் வளர்க்கப்படுகிறது.
இந்த பூங்கா பணிகள் ஓரளவுக்கு நிறைவு பெற்றுள்ளது. ஆயினும் 4 கோடி ரூபாய் மதிப்பிலான பணிகள் முடிவுறாமல் உள்ளன. அதற்கான நிதி வந்ததும் அப்பணிகளும் விரைவில் முடியும். ஆயினும் பொங்கலுக்கு வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி பூங்காவை திறந்து பொதுமக்கள் பார்வைக்குவிட அரசு உத்தரவிட்டுள்ளதாக கூறப்படுகிறது. இதற்கான பணிகளில் வனத்துறை அதிகாரிகள் தீவிரமாக ஈடுபட்டு வருகின்றனர்.
இதுகுறித்து வனத்துறை அதிகாரி ஒருவர் கூறுகையில் ""இன்னும் 4 கோடி ரூபாய் மதிப்பிலான பணிகள் பாக்கி உள்ளன. ஆனால் பொங்கலுக்கு பூங்காவை திறக்க அரசு ஆர்வம் காட்டுகிறது. எனவே மீதிப்பணிகளை முடிக்கத்தேவையான நிதி விரைவில் வரும் என எதிர்பார்க்கிறோம். நிதி வந்தால் பாக்கி பணிகள் விரைந்து முடிக்கப்படும். உள்கட்டமைப்பு நட்சத்திர மரம் வனத்தோட்டம் வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி இனப்பெருக்கம் செய்யும் "பீடிங் லேப்' உள்ளிட்டவை அமைக்கப்படுகிறது. வண்ணத்துப்பூச்சி பூங்கா அமைக்கும் பணி முழுமையாக 2015ல் நிறைவடையும்'' என்றார்.

Saying it with chocolates and flowers

SUGARCOATED MESSAGE:Schoolchildren giving chocolates to a passenger travelling by car as part of an awareness campaign on wearing seatbelts in Tiruchi on Thursday.

Passengers in cars that passed by the head post office junction in the city on Thursday morning were in for a surprise when they were asked to pull over by the traffic police and were offered chocolates and flowers and requested to wear seatbelts.

Those who were wearing seatbelts were praised and offered chocolates, while others were requested to wear seatbelts and later given chocolates.

The exercise was for the seatbelt awareness programme that was jointly organized by Indian Red Cross Society, JCI, and Youth Exnora International. The event was inaugurated by A. Pandian, Regional Transport Officer, Srirangam, in the presence of G. Rajasekaran, Chairman, Indian Red Cross Society, Tiruchi district branch. “A majority of the persons travelling in cars do not wear seatbelts. Such programmes help in reinforcing the necessity of wearing a seatbelt as it helps in averting danger,” said T. Senthil Kumar, president. JCI Tiruchi. Children from Vasavi Vidyalaya and Swedish students on an exchange programme in the city, participated with gusto in the event and gave away pamphlets advocating the importance of seatbelts. Some children stood holding a picture banner that advised people to wear seatbelt at all times for their own safety. “All of us know that wearing a seatbelt is important, but we hardly wear it because of the discomfort. But today’s event helped us realise that bearing some discomfort is all right to prevent fatality during accidents,” said S. Aravind, a passerby.

Work on concrete parapet on two sides of space beneath Thennur bridge in progress

The Tiruchirapalli City Corporation has finally decided to spruce up open spaces beneath the bridges that have come to be occupied by encroachers or used as garbage dump.

As a first step, the civic body has started building concrete parapet on two sides of the public space under the Thennur bridge and planned to raise a small garden at the space.

Soon after opening the bridges about a decade ago, the civic administrators had announced that the open space under the bridges would be put to good use as parking lot or public parks. But years have passed by without any initiative in this direction.

The space under the bridges, especially at Palakkarai and Thennur, presented a picture of squalor and neglect. Various stretches became convenient dumping ground for building debris and garbage. The space under the bridges on Thennur High Road, the Heber Road, and the Madurai High Road has been encroached upon by vendors and traders. Truck and goods van operators find it a convenient to park their vehicles. At a few places, the pillars of the bridges have become supporting structures for sheds. The space under the bridge around the Ramakrishna cinema corner near Thennur had been converted into an open garbage dump and open air toilet.

The dingy corners beneath the bridges, especially near the Thennur and Palakkarai railway crossings, have become refuges of anti-social elements, local residents have been complaining.

Corporation officials said the construction of the parapet would help prevent encroachments. “We have taken up the work at a cost of Rs. 20 lakh. Once the concrete structure is ready, we will raise a garden in the area and provide lighting. We are taking up the work on a pilot basis. Depending on its success, we will take up similar initiatives at open spaces under the other bridges,” Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani told The Hindu.

Sakunthala Srinivasan, a resident of Anna Nagar, and president, Tiruchi Payaneetalar Iyakkam, who has long been complaining about the security issues arising out of the movement of anti-social elements beneath the bridge at Thennur, welcomed the initiative. “We hope the Corporation move will make the place more secure and cleaner,” she said.
