Survey taken up to identify insanitary toilets, buildings

Tiruchirapalli City Corporation has begun a survey to identify insanitary toilets and buildings in the city in order to initiate appropriate follow-up measures, said Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani here on Wednesday.

The survey will enumerate toilets and buildings considered insanitary if they do not have proper disposal mechanism for human waste. Toilets which are not connected to the underground drainage or septic tanks, and those which let out sewage into open drains will be considered insanitary.

Once the survey is completed, notice will be issued to owners to initiate appropriate measures, he said at a workshop on ‘Simple steps to achieve water security – rainwater harvesting and grey water recycling,’ organised by the Rain Centre, Chennai, and SCOPE, a voluntary organisation, in the city.

Mr. Thandapani said the civic body had planned to create over 100 re-charge pits for harvesting rainwater across the city, especially in areas where rainwater is found stagnant.

Emphasising the need for proper design and maintenance of rainwater harvesting structures (RWH), Mr. Thandapani said the corporation had taken up a campaign to ensure that all buildings in the city had RWH structures last year. However, many buildings are yet to be provided with RWH structures or require rejuvenation of existing ones.

He said RWH structures should be designed properly in proportion to the built-up area and open space in a particular building, and the quantity of the rainwater that could be harvested. In most buildings, RWH structures had been put up to meet minimal requirement. Town planning officers and engineers should ensure that the structures were designed properly taking into account the annual average rainfall of the area and the soil conditions.

Sekhar Raghavan, Director, Rain Centre, Akash Ganga Trust, which had set up the Rain Centre, had received a grant from Arghyam, a non-governmental organisation based in Bangalore, to conduct 15 workshops on efficient methods of rainwater harvesting and grey water recycling in Tamil Nadu. Six of them had been held in Chennai and three each are being organised in Coimbatore, Madurai, and Tiruchi, he said.

Solar power to light up Tiruchi prisons

The Tiruchi Central Prison and the Special Prison for Women has planned to tap solar energy to meet their power requirements in the near future.

The groundwork for the proposal has been set in motion in both prisons that accommodates remand prisoners, under trials, and convicts.

The Tamil Nadu Energy Development Agency (TEDA) will provide technical assistance for the proposed plan.

Jail authorities here told The Hindu that TEDA officials had visited both prisons and taken steps besides inspecting the sites ahead of the proposed installation of the roof top solar photo voltaic system. Spread over 280 acres of land, the sprawling Tiruchi Central Prison accommodates over 2,000 inmates. The Special Prison for Women at Gandhi Market established on 5.7 acres houses over 100 women prisoners.

Officials said both prisons were provided with generators as a back up to ensure uninterrupted power supply in case of power cuts.

The idea to tap renewable solar energy was to make use of it as another source to ensure uninterrupted power supply to the prisons and reduce power consumption coming from the grid, said the officials.

The State government had announced that Roof Top Solar Photo Voltaic system would be established in the seven central prisons at Vellore, Tiruchi, Coimbatore, Madurai, Palayamkottai, Cuddalore, and Salem besides at the Special Prison for Women at Tiruchi and Vellore and the Borstal School, Pudukottai, at a cost of Rs. 35 crore. As this was a major project, the government wanted analysis to be done prior to sanctioning funds.

Nevertheless, it has initially sanctioned Rs. 5 lakh towards preparation of detailed project report for providing the system in the prisons.

Australian tourists injured while escaping from fire

Image

Two Australian tourists sustained injuries while trying to escape from the first floor of a hotel where a fire broke out in the building at Singarathope in the heart of the city on Sunday evening.

According to eyewitnesses, the accident took place after a transformer adjacent to the Hotel Royal Sathyam burst and a spark fell on an air-conditioning unit on the ground floor. The fire spread fast to the first floor, triggering a panic reaction from guests.

Julie (55) of Australia, who was staying in a suite on the first floor, reportedly broke open the glass door of a window and tried to escape using a rope, but she slipped. She and her husband Michael (61), who had come to her rescue, fell down and sustained injuries. The couple have been admitted to a nearby private hospital.

About 320 persons, many of them attending a meeting, were evacuated to safety thanks to the timely action by the police and Fire and Rescue Service personnel.

Firefighting units from Tiruchi and Srirangam rushed to the spot and put out the fire in about an hour. Power supply was disconnected and traffic was diverted in the busy locality. Abhinav Kumar and R.Jayanthi, Deputy Commissioners of Police, S. Syed Mohamed Sha, Divisional Fire Officer, supervised the rescue operation.

Security tightened for R-Day

Image

Security has been stepped up in the city, at airport, and at major railway stations falling within the limits of Government Railway Police (GRP), Tiruchi district, on the eve of Republic Day. Police personnel have been deployed at vantage points with the GRP conducting open line patrolling in different railway sections. Major railway bridges and places of worship have been brought under the security cover.

Vehicle checks

Sources said the city police had been instructed to conduct vehicle checks and checks in lodges.

A senior police officer said security at major railway stations had been jointly ramped up by the GRP and the Railway Protection Force (RPF).

Railway sources said the RPF personnel deployed at stations have been directed to remain extra vigilant.

A joint security check was carried out by the GRP and RPF personnel at Tiruchi junction on Saturday.

Armed with necessary gadgets required for anti-sabotage checks, the GRP and RPF personnel checked the belongings of passengers on board Coimbatore–Mayiladuthurai Jan Shatabdhi Express when the train arrived at Tiruchi junction in the morning. The RPF personnel utilised a sniffer dog trained in detecting explosive substances while checking on board the train and on the platform.

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.
