Poongudi village shows the way to water conservation

Image

Villagers of Poongudi in Manikandam block have set an example for water conservation and making the most out of it for irrigation and drinking purposes.

While the water table in adjoining villages has been depleting, villagers of Poongudi take pride by not just preserving the water tank. “We keep the tank clean and free from pollution. It is used only for irrigation and drinking water purpose,” says P. Veeramuthu, a resident.

A few maintenance works was taken up at the tank three years ago under the Namakku Namae scheme at an expenditure of Rs. 3.45 lakh. “We contributed Rs.1.15 lakh while the rest was borne by the District Rural Development Agency,” he said.

Realising water from the Kattalai Canal, the tank caters for a single crop of paddy on about 100 acres. But there is a possibility to go for a second crop cycle. The village accounts for sodic soil which hampers diversification in cultivation practices, said Mr. Veeramuthu

More storage possible

N. Vetrichelvan, a progressive farmer, said that although the water spread area of the tank is 134 acres, only 50 acres is being utilised now for water storage. The remaining 84 acres should be dredged, so that the villagers could go for a second crop every year. The villagers presently rely on “TRY- R – (3)” paddy variety introduced by the Anbil Dharmalingam Agricultural College and Research Institute (ADACRI) of the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University.

Mr. Veeramuthu pointed out that the dredging of the tank would not only help raise the second crop but also cater to the drinking water needs of ADACRI and its hostels. Though “TRY – R – (3)” is a ‘samba variety, it could also be raised as kharif crop, said D. Pandiyarajan, Dean of the Institute, explaining the suitability of the variety as a second crop.

Encouraged by the farmers’ enthusiasm in raising ‘samba’ despite various odds, Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Society (IFFCO) had adopted the village three years ago and supplied gypsum free of cost. D.Subramanian, Chief Area Manager, IFFCO, Tiruchi Region, says that apart from utilising the tank for irrigation, the Tourism Department could also explore the possibility of developing the village as a tourism centre by setting up boat rides. “The serene and tranquil environment is ideally suited for the tourism development project,” he said.

Fire station at Main Guard Gate on the cards

Separate proposal for a fire station near Samayapuram temple and at Manachanallur also forwarded

Considering heavy public movements in and around Main Guard Gate, the city’s business hub dotted with commercial establishments, Fire and Rescue Services Department has proposed to set up a new fire station there to act swiftly in times of emergencies.

A proposal justifying the rationale behind establishing a fire station within the main commercial area has been forwarded to the department higher-ups in Chennai for approval.

Town hall identified

Fire fighters have identified the town hall for the proposed fire station to cover areas situated in that vicinity. A fire tender required for the new station has been sought under the Central government scheme.

The city’s business nerve centre is dotted with multi-storey buildings, shopping complexes, theatres, hotels, government and private offices, medium and small scale units, petrol stations, and a wholesale vegetable market at Gandhi Market.

The department has forwarded separate proposal seeking sanction for establishing a fire station near Samayapuram Arulmigu Mariamman Temple and at Manachanallur.

Eight fire stations

Presently, Tiruchi Fire Division accounts for eight fire stations in Tiruchi, Srirangam, Lalgudi, Pullambadi, Manapparai, Navalpattu, Thuvarankurichi, and Uppiliapuram.

Year 2013 saw as many as 1,026 fire calls reported in the eight fire stations. A majority of them were received by Tiruchi fire station.

Bio-methanation plant to come up at Ambedkar Nagar soon

After several unsuccessful attempts to go in for a waste-to-energy project in the past, Tiruchirapalli City Corporation has finally firmed up a plan to set up a bio-methanation plant to produce power from organic waste generated from Gandhi Market.

The Corporation Council recently approved a proposal to set up the bio-methanation plant at Ambedkar Nagar and hand over the project to a Pune-based company on a turn-key basis.

The project, to be set up on build-operate-transfer basis, will have a capacity to process about five tonnes of organic (vegetable) waste from Gandhi Market every day. The bio-methanation gas-cum-power plant is to be set up at a cost of Rs. 90 lakh.

According to Corporation sources, the plant will be able to generate about 450 units of power a day.

The civic body proposes to utilise the power for operating some of its sewage pumping stations and streetlights. The company will operate and maintain the plant for a period of seven years before handing it over to the corporation.

The city on an average generates about 436 tonnes of solid waste every day.

Of this, 416 tonnes are estimated to be collected and removed to the garbage dumps. Gandhi Market, one of the biggest markets in the State, generates about 40 tonnes of organic solid waste every day, including vegetable, fruit, and meat wastes.

Over the past decade, the corporation had drawn similar plans at least twice but they failed to take off.

In 2007, the civic body had explored the possibility of roping in an Italian company as technology partner for setting up the power plant.

Corporation officials had then said that a study conducted by Anna University had indicated that nearly 2.5 to 3 mega watt of power could be produced from the solid waste generated in the city.

The latest initiative, though on a smaller scale, could help the corporation save about Rs. 90.70 lakh by using the power generated from the unit for a period of seven years, officials said.

Police personnel honored for exceptional service

TRICHY: It is not often that the public commends the police force and recognizes their services. In an effort to improve public-police interaction, police personnel were honoured for meritorious services by a non-governmental organization (NGO) in the city on Saturday.

While 20 policemen received awards for exceptional service, city commissioner of police Shailesh Kumar Yadav was presented the "People Friendly Commissioner" award by Ladies' Circle, a women's NGO. The 20 police personnel are from the ranks of constable, head constable, sub inspector and inspector. They were handpicked by the city police commissioner and the deputy commissioner Abhinav Kumar.

The function titled 'Knights in Khaki' was organized by Ladies' Circle in association with the MAM College, Trichy, to honour unsung heroes in the police ranks.

Efforts such as honouring policemen will give them an emotional connect with the public, CP Yadav said. "In a schedule that runs to more than 15 hours, police undergoes a lot of stress. He has to overcome the stress to protect society. However, public never understands it and always gives a negative rating to police," the commissioner noted.

Yadav also lauded the police for their contribution in running a democracy peacefully. It is the police who confront a problem first, Yadav remarked.

DCP Abhinav Kumar said the good deeds of police never come to the spotlight. But a small mistake committed by an officer will take the centre stage, thus creating a bad image for the entire department.

The personnel honoured included those who cracked serial murder cases and saved people lives during danger.

A gold-plated 20 gram silver coin was given to each of the 20 police personnel who were honoured at the function.

Police begin spadework for Lok Sabha elections

Even as the dates for the Lok Sabha elections are yet to be announced, the police have begun their spade work. Election control cells have been put in place in Tiruchi, Perambalur, and Pudukottai districts and are working in accordance with the guidelines laid down by the Election Commission (EC).

A senior police officer in the rank of Additional Superintendent of Police will be the nodal officer for each election control cell which would function under the direct supervision of the respective unit officer — Superintendent of Police in the case of district and Commissioner of Police in the case of city.

The election cells would be entrusted with multi-tasks that include collection of information, passing on correspondence received from the police headquarters and the Election Commission from time to time, compiling the number of polling booths and those identified as sensitive and vulnerable, preparation of detailed security plan, mobilisation of manpower, and their deployment besides ensuring the strict enforcement of the model code of conduct.

Each cell functioning in the respective district would be provided with necessary logistic support such as walkie-talkie sets and vehicles.

Alongside constituting election control cells, the authorities are shuffling field-level police officers and men in Tiruchi, Perambalur and Pudukottai districts based on the EC guidelines.

Field-level personnel in the rank of inspectors, sub-inspectors and constables who had completed three years in the same station or sub division have been transferred, police sources told The Hindu .

A mass shuffling has already been done in Pudukottai district where around 400 sub-inspectors and constables have been moved out from their present work place.

Constables have been moved out from their native police station to other station, while sub-inspectors have been transferred from the native sub division to another.

In the case of Inspectors, they have been transferred from one district to another.

Officers and men serving in the District Special Branch, Intelligence Section, and other units such as training and technical services were exempted from the transfer guidelines, say the sources.

Officers due to retire in the coming six months were exempted from transfer.

The Tiruchi Police Range consists of three Parliamentary constituencies – Tiruchi, Perambalur and Karur.

Tiruchi corporation revises water tariff

Image

Residents of the city will have to shell out more towards water charges from April as the Tiruchirpalli City Corporation Council on Thursday revised the rates across the board for all categories of consumers.

The increase, to come into effect from April 1, will be the steepest for domestic consumers as they will have to shell out Rs. 160 a month towards water charges, 60 per cent more than the existing rate.

Deposit rates and the monthly charges for non-domestic and industrial connections have been increased.

Although the council approved a resolution in April last year providing for increasing the water charges with effect from August 1, 2013, the decision was not implemented as the government had not accepted it, officials said. The council had then fixed the water charge for domestic connections at Rs. 125 a month although the official resolution had proposed the doubling of the levy to Rs. 200 a month.

The official resolution, approved at an urgent meeting of the council chaired by Mayor A. Jaya on Thursday, justified the increase on the grounds that the civic body has to repay loans taken for the Rs. 221.42 crore new drinking water augmentation scheme.

It pointed out that the civic body in 2008 approved a resolution providing for increasing the charges in stages in the wake of the implementation of the new scheme and the civic body’s financial commitment to it.

As councillors of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam were suspended from the meeting, it was left to members of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam, the Congress and Independent MLA M. Venkataraj to raise a feeble objection to the move.

Mr. Venkataraj and the other party members contended that the increase would put a heavy burden on residents and demanded a reduction as the new water scheme was yet to be commissioned.

City Engineer R. Chandran said the civic body had already started supplying water from the new scheme to some parts of the city and the scheme would be fully commissioned shortly.

V.P. Thandapani, Corporation Commissioner, said the corporation was only maintaining “status quo” in the light of the resolution approved by the council in 2008 and revised rates would come into effect only after the new scheme was commissioned.

Trichy: Witnessing unpredictable growth

Trichy, also known as Tiruchirappalli, is the fourth largest city of Tamil Nadu. Situated on the banks of river Cauvery, the city is a unique blend of tradition and modernity built around the Rockfort, which is a combination of 2 famous 7th century Hindu temples. It is also a booming commercial center of the state and is famous for artificial diamonds, cigars, handloom cloth, glass bangles, and wooden and clay toys.

The industries in Trichy are developing at a rapid pace and the IT market is not far behind. It has around 100 channel partners, who cater to various business verticals. Owing to the presence of myriad institutions and colleges, Trichy is considered to be the educational hub of Tamil Nadu. Hence, a major chunk of revenue for channel partners come through the education sector as well as SMEs. However, most of the partners also cater to other verticals like government, corporate and SOHO. The annual turnover of the IT market is around 100 crore. When it comes to the buying trend of consumers, they usually like to purchase laptops, desktops, software products and networking solutions. H Wilson of Cemos Electronics said, “People mostly prefer to buy Dell and Toshiba laptops, while HP and Compaq desktops are still in demand.” According to S Threethananthan, CEO, Fusion Systems, “Our sale generally goes up during pre-Diwali, and in the months of July to September.

The growth of the IT market in Trichy has been fluctuating for the last 1 year because of the price inflation of gold, silver and other consumer products. This situation has become very unpredictable or uneven in terms of growth for the Trichy IT market. “There is a flat growth because business has become more and more unpredictable. Also the recent announcement by the Tamil Nadu government to issue free laptops has hindered the sales,” said Threethananthan.
In order to keep the customers coming back again and again, vendors usually introduce schemes from time-to-time. “Last year, Lenovo launched a digital camera offer for customers, under which the company was offering free digital cameras on the purchase of laptops. This offer was a big hit among customers,” said K Uttam of Paras Computers. Similarly, Toshiba had also introduced a scheme in which it was offering free home theater systems on the purchase of laptops.

Trichy also boasts of an active IT association—Association of Computers Traders, Trichy (ACTT), which organizes various activities for its members and partners, and effectively solve issues among dealers and vendors. Founded in 2005, the association has more than 65 registered members, for whom it organizes interpersonal communication skills and sales activities. On being asked about the vendor-partner relationships, B Kuberan of VBK Computers and Cube Systems said, “Generally, we do not face any kind of issues with companies, but if we have, then it is usually associated with warranty issues and service support.”

Recently, there was an upsurge of ' fly by night' operators in the city, who usually do their business for a short period of time. “These operators deal with channel partners and after gaining their trust, they dump them and flee from the market. This way they eat up a big market share of partners, which eventually results in a huge loss. But now, this issue has been resolved,” said Kuberan.

நரேந்திரமோடி உருவாக்க உள்ள 100 முன்மாதிரி நகரங்களில் திருச்சியும் ஒன்று சுப்பிரமணியன்



-A+A
பதிவு செய்த நாள் : Jan 28 | 01:57 am

திருச்சி,
மத்தியில் பா.ஜ.க. ஆட்சி அமைந்ததும் நரேந்திமோடி உருவாக்க திட்டமிட்டுள்ள 100 முன்மாதிரி நகரங்களில் திருச்சியும் ஒன்று என்று மாநில செயலாளர் சுப்பிரமணியன் கூறினார்.
பா.ஜ.க. மாநில செயலாளர் என்ஜினீயர் சுப்பிரணியன் திருச்சியில் நிருபர்களிடம் கூறியதாவது:–
வல்லபாய் பட்டேல் சிலை
ஆங்கிலேயர் ஆட்சிகாலத்தில் துண்டு, துண்டாக சிதைந்து கிடந்த 565 இந்திய சமஸ்தானங்களை ஒருங்கிணைத்தவர் சர்தார் வல்லபாய் பட்டேல். அவருடைய பெருமையை போற்றும் வகையில், நாட்டின் ஒற்றுமை சின்னமாக சர்தார் வல்லபாய் பட்டேலின் 591 அடி உயரமுள்ள சிலையை குஜராத் மாநிலம் சரோவர் அணைக்கட்டு பகுதியில் சாதுபட் என்ற இடத்தில் நரேந்திரமோடி உருவாக்க திட்டமிட்டுள்ளார்.
இந்த சிலை நாடெங்கிலும் உள்ள விவசாயிகள் பயன்படுத்திய இரும்புக்களை கொண்டு உருவாக்க முடிவு செய்யப்பட்டு உள்ளது. இதையடுத்து தமிழகத்தில் உள்ள 12,500 பஞ்சாயத்துக்களிலும் 4 நாட்கள் தங்கி இருந்து விவசாயிகளின் கஷ்ட நஷ்டங்களை உணர்ந்து, அவர்களிடம் இருந்து இரும்புக்களை பெற்று அனுப்பும்படி பா.ஜ.க.வினருக்கு மாநில தலைவர் பொன்.ராதாகிருஷ்ணன் அறிவுறுத்தி உள்ளார்.
முன்மாதிரி நகரம்
அதன்படி திருச்சி மாவட்டத்தில் உள்ள 404 பஞ்சயாத்துக்களிலும் இரும்புக்களை சேகரிக்கும் பணி கடந்த ஒரு மாதமாக நடைபெற்று வந்தது. இதன் மூலம் ஒரு டன் இரும்புக்கள் சேகரிக்கப்பட்டு, அந்த இரும்புக்கள் இன்று(செவ்வாய்கிழமை) சென்னைக்கு அனுப்பி வைக்கப்பட உள்ளது. மேலும், அந்தந்த பஞ்சாயத்தில் உள்ள மண்ணை எடுத்து ஒரு டப்பாவில் அடைத்து, அதையும் குஜராத்துக்கு அனுப்பி வைக்கிறோம். பாராளுமன்ற தேர்தலில் வெற்றி பெற்று பா.ஜ.க. ஆட்சி அமைத்ததும் நரேந்திரமோடி உருவாக்க திட்டமிட்டுள்ள 100 முன்மாதிரி நகரங்களில் திருச்சியும் ஒன்றாக இருக்கும்.
இவ்வாறு அவர் கூறினார்.

Police to check all public buildings for CCTV system

With many public buildings and commercial establishments in the district yet to comply with the mandatory installation of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) system in the district, the Tiruchi police have decided to get tough with those not complying with the rule.

Superintendent of Police S. Rajeswari told presspersons at Samayapuram on Wednesday that only 455 out of the 892 public buildings in the district had till now complied with the government order and installed CCTV system on their premises.

The State government had brought in the Tamil Nadu Urban Local Bodies (Installation of Closed Circuit Television Units in Public Buildings) Rules, 2012 making installation of CCTV units mandatory in all public buildings, commercial establishments and places where public congregated in large numbers as a measure to control crimes.

Following the government directive, the police organised separate meetings with representatives of banks, pawn broker shops, and those of other public buildings driving home the government rule and sensitising them to the importance of installing CCTV to help investigators in crime detection.

The sensitisation meetings would continue at the station-level during which the police would inform the owners and occupiers of public buildings on the mandatory installation of CCTV system on their respective premises, the SP said.

The field-level officers would inspect the buildings in their respective areas in this regard, she said and added that the police would drive home the message that CCTV system should be installed before March first week. She said the police had installed three CCTV units at three public places — one near the Kollidam station and the remaining two at Samayapuram and Tiruverambur to monitor movements. Plans were afoot to install CCTVs at Manapparai and Musiri soon.
