The spots are: Vestry School Ground, Periamilaguparai (near K.A.P.Viswanatham Medical College), additional entry point to Tiruchi Railway Junction (along Bharathiar Salai) and eastern side of Khadi Kraft (close to Junction Roundabout).

Except buses bound for Chennai, Salem, Dindigul and Palani, which would be operated as usual, following changes have been effected for buses to other destinations.Vestry School Ground will be the temporary stand for buses for Coimbatore, Tiruppur and Karur.

These buses will have to come via MGR statue junction to reach the spot and return in the same route.

Periyamilaguparai is meant for buses for Madurai, Tirunelveli, and Kanyakumari.

The buses will have to come via Mannarpuram, Viralimalai Junction, Aristo Roundabout, and Gorimedu to reach Periyamilaguparai. The second additional entry for Tiruchi railway junction will act as the temporary bus stand for buses for Thanjavur. These buses will come via TVS Tollgate and Head Post Office Junction to the spot and return in the same direction.

Buses meant for Pudukottai will have to come via TVS Tollgate, Head Post Office junction to reach the eastern side of Khadi Kraft. Buses from Chennai and Salem will reach Central Bus Stand via TVS Tollgate, Head Post Office Junction, Junction Roundabout and V.O.C. Road. In the return direction, these buses will go via Williams Road, Mutharaiyar Statue Junction, Head Post Office Junction and TVS Tollgate.

Buses from Dindigul and Palani will reach Central Bus Stand via police check post-1, Karumandapam, Gorimedu, Aristo Roundabout and V.O.C. Road. In the return direction, these vehicles will go via Rajaji Salai, Periamilaguparai, Gorimedu, Karumandapam and police check post -1.

The temporary regulation will be in operation from October 31 to November 4.

PARKING AT MILITARY GROUND: The military ground at Mannarpuram is earmarked for parking government buses from other divisions and private and omni buses. They would have come to the bus stand at the scheduled time to pick up passengers.

Government buses could also park their vehicles at the respective depots on times when they are not operated. Parking of buses at temporary bus stands would not be allowed, say police sources.

OMNI BUSES: Omni buses in limited numbers would be allowed to be parked along the V.O.C. Road beyond Gate-3 of Central Bus Stand.

TN to expand electronic power bill payment scheme

The Tamil Nadu Government plans to expand the Any Time Payment Machine (ATPM) scheme for payment of electricity bills to more centres across the State.

“We had planned for 100 ATPMs. Of the 100, we have already installed 24 ATPMs and work towards installing 76 ATPMs is being done,” Electricity Minister Natham R. Viswanathan said in the Assembly, while replying to a question.

Works towards installing ATPMs in Madurai, Tiruchi, Tirunelveli and Vellore are in progress, he said, adding that Thillai Ganga Nagar, Besant Nagar and Velachery sub-stations in Chennai would also have ATPMs in three to five months.

Pudukottai to be brought under Tiruchi PSK

Taking cognisance of the popular demand, the Tiruchi Regional Passport Office has decided to bring Pudukottai district under the jurisdiction of the Tiruchi Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) with effect from November 18. Pudukottai district is under the jurisdiction of Thanjavur PSK which caters to Thanjavur, Tiruvarur, and Nagapattinam districts while the Tiruchi PSK serves Tiruchi, Karur, and Perambalur districts.

There have been persistent demands from applicants from Pudukottai that the district be brought under the jurisdiction of Tiruchi PSK.

“We have been receiving requests from public that the applicants of Pudukottai be served at the Tiruchi PSK as they have better connectivity to Tiruchi,” said K.Balamurugan, Regional Passport Officer, Tiruchi.

On an average, the Passport Office receives about 100 passport applications a day from Pudukottai district. The move is expected to decongest the Thanjavur PSK.

“The Thanjavur and Tiruchi PSKs process about 800 applications every day. Of this, nearly 550 to 600 applications are processed at Thanjavur PSK as it serves applicants from five districts. By bringing Pudukottai under Tiruchi PSK, we hope to bring down the crowd in Thanjavur,” Mr. Balamurugan told The Hindu . Touts often take advantage of the overcrowding at the PSK in Thanjavur to fleece gullible applicants and some charge up to Rs.1,000 for filling the online applications. The shift in the jurisdiction will help prevent such instances.

Online appointment

The Passport Office has decided to restrict the number of walk-in applicants, a facility extended to certain category of applicants who need not wait to get online appointments for personal appearance at both PSKs. Accordingly, only 60 walk-in applicants will be entertained a day at the Tiruchi PSK and 100 at the Thanjavur PSK on first-come first-served basis.

Mr. Balamurugan said very often more than 150 applicants turn up at the PSKs under the walk-in categories, posing difficulties in serving them. At times, some of them have to be asked to come later. In another significant move, the Passport Office has withdrawn the walk-in facility for certain category of applicants.

Applicants seeking deletion of ECR status, inclusion/deletions of name of spouse in passports and re-issue of passports in case of exhaustion of visa pages will be required to obtain appointment online upon filing their applications online.

“Since there is no longer any problem in getting appointments online, we have decided to withdraw the facility to these three categories of applicants,” Mr. Balamurugan said. The restriction in numbers was expected to reduce the crowd and improve service at the PSKs.

However, senior citizens, minor children, government servants, and public sector employees and applicants seeking police clearance certificates can still avail the walk-in facility. Applicants of these categories would have to file their applications online, but need not wait for getting appointments online.

Approved facilitation counters run by ex-servicemen are functioning at both PSKs to help people file applications and generate appointments online at a nominal fee of Rs.50 and Rs.20 respectively.

Apart from this, a 24-hour helpline at the toll-free number 1800-258-1800 is functioning for providing general information, application status, and police verification status to applicants. A help-desk-cum-enquiry counter was functioning at the Tiruchi PSK, Mr. Balamurugan said.

Commercial areas under police watch

Deployment in shift basis

60 personnel for crime prevention

High definition surveillance cameras installed

Watchtowers at vantage points

Two areas for parking vehicles



Image

The city police have enhanced vigil at prime commercial areas, under the Fort Range, which is teeming with shoppers making purchases ahead of Deepavali. Men in uniform and in plain clothes have been deployed at business nerve centres in addition to installation of high definition surveillance cameras in an effort to prevent crime and regulate vehicular movement.

Police personnel have been deployed in shifts at Chathram bus stand, NSB Road, Nandhi Koil street, Big Bazaar, Teppakulam area, Singarathope, and Gandhi Market arch.

Among the posse of strength drawn for security duty in connection with the festival of lights, around 60 of them have been engaged exclusively in crime prevention. They have been allotted different spots and instructed to move in plain clothes in the earmarked areas. The objective is to create a moral fear in the mind of offenders, says an officer.

Watchtowers have been erected at vantage points atop which police constables would monitor movement using binoculars. In addition to the city police strength, law enforcers have planned to rope in NSS volunteers and NCC cadets, and involve them in regulating the swelling crowd and vehicular movement.

Police sources say Bishop Heber Higher Secondary School at Teppakulam and ‘Yanaikatti’ ground have been identified for parking of vehicles.

Meanwhile, Federation of Consumer and Service Organisations here has appealed to the district and civic authorities to allow small vendors, who come to the city to sell their products, from the eve of the festival to the morning hours.

In a memorandum to the Chief Minister, its president M. Sekaran said it was a century-old custom in Tiruchi wherein traders from various parts of the State come to the city to sell their products on the platform during the festival season.

Many go for a late night purchase on the eve of the festival as they could buy the products at a cheaper rate, he said.

He also appealed to the authorities to open help desk at bus stands and commercial areas to assist shoppers.

CCTVs installed to manage Diwali rush


TRICHY: With just 15 more days left for Diwali, people in the city are all geared up to celebrate the festival. But this time, along with a variety of crackers, clothes and cuisines, we will also have cameras joining us in the celebrations.

Yes, along with the people, the city police have also been preparing themselves for a safe celebration. In order to control the floating crowd and to prevent crimes, the police have started erecting special temporary watch towers and close circuit television cameras at important junctions and shopping areas.

The Diwali shoppers usually come only a week before the festival, but this time people have already started turning up. Places such as the NSB road and Teppakulam that have a lot of textile shops are overflowing with people. With Bakrid being a holiday for all offices, the shops witnessed a spike in number of people turning up resulting in traffic snarls. This has also put the shoppers in difficulty as they were unable to handle the crowd. The police authorities say that most of the shoppers have come ahead thinking that shopping a week before Diwali would be difficult due to the large number of crowd showing up, however to their disappointment, most of them have come now. The entire stretch of NSB road has been filled with a variety of shops catering to the interests of the public. The shoppers have welcomed the initiative of the police as festive season encourages a lot of bag lifters and pick pocketing incidents. Police authorities said that the cameras and watch towers have already been installed at the important points, including NSB Road, in the entrance of Malaikottai temple, Teppakulam, Chintamani Annasalai and Chatiram bus stand, and patrolling has also started. Cops are also planning to install additional cameras in the existing areas and also in other major points in the city in the coming days.

Commenting on this, city police commissioner, Shailesh Kumar Yadav, said that they have already installed around 42 cameras at various points, which are being closely monitored at the control room. The special addition of five cameras will be placed in the markets, junctions and other key points. "We have taken this precautionary measure to prevent any untoward incidents," he added. The policemen in the watch towers will be constantly keeping a vigil on the crowd and the public are also encouraged to complain to the police if they come across anything untoward, he said.
