Flow of devotees and water increases at Cauvery Maha Pushkaram

Image

Devotees from various parts of Tamil Nadu and neighbouring States continue to throng the temple town of Srirangam to take a holy dip in the Cauvery since the 12-day Cauvery Maha Pushkaram started on September 12.

The footfall of pilgrims was heavy on Sunday – the commencement of the Tamil month ‘Purattasi’ — with devotees flocking to the Amma Mandapam bathing ghat and the nearby ghats to take a sacred bath in the Cauvery.

The water flow has also steadily increased in the river, attracting more devotees.

The Amma Mandapam road and the Mambazha Salai witnessed heavy movement of pilgrims on Sunday. A large number of pilgrims have been coming from neighbouring Andhra Pradesh in tourist buses and other vehicles.

Barricades have been erected at various spots along the Amma Mandapam road to divert vehicular movement in view of the heavy presence of devotees. A sprawling site along the Salai road has been converted into a temporary parking lot for tourist buses – a majority of which are from Andhra Pradesh.

Firefighters deployed

Police personnel in shifts have been deployed at various spots in Srirangam to regulate traffic and thwart offences.

Firefighters armed with rubber boats and other equipment have been deployed near the Cauvery river to quickly respond to any emergency situation.

Around 80 firefighters would be deployed in shifts till the event concluded, said a senior official of the Fire and Rescue Services Department here.

Mettur water reaches Mayanur

Image

To reach Tiruchi on Saturday; farmers, devotees, who want to take a holy dip in Cauvery, are happy

Even as the decision of the State government to release 10,000 cusecs of water into the Cauvery from the Mettur reservoir has brought cheers to devotees, who have come to Srirangam and Mayiladuthurai for the Maha Cauvery Pushkaram, and farmers, the water is likely to reach Tiruchi on Saturday.

The release was stepped up to 10,000 cusecs at 6 a.m. on Wednesday from 2,000 cusecs at 11 p.m. on Tuesday and 4,000 cusecs at 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

According to Public Works Department sources, the water released on Tuesday night has reached Mayanur barrage in Karur district thanks to good speed along the river. About 5,000 cusecs was realised at Mayanur on Wednesday evening. It will reach Mukkombu on Thursday evening.

A senior PWD official said that there would be hardly any percolation or evaporation loss as the river course was wet due to current spell of rain and opening of water for drinking water purpose recently. On normal circumstances, water would take at least three days to reach Tiruchi from the Mettur dam. However, it might not take more than two days this time due to wet condition all along the river course.

Meanwhile, the PWD is likely to maintain 10,000 cusecs for the first three days and thereafter gradually reduce the release. It will maintain 4,000 cusecs for the next three days and 2,000 cusecs for six days. However, the flow will be maintained up to September 24, the last day of Cauvery Maha Pushkaram festival.

Meanwhile, the water released into the Cauvery from the Mayanur barrage in Karur reached Tiruchi on Wednesday. Water is flowing over the Kambarasampettai check dam, bringing cheers to local residents, farmers and devotees.

Though the water flow was noticed along a side of the Cauvery, officials say that it will spread across the river on Friday.

It will enable devotees to take a holy dip at various bathing ghats including Amma Mandapam, Puli Mandapam, Ayyalamman and Chinthamani. The devotees are taking bath through sprinklers set up by the Tiruchi Corporation at Amma Mandapam bathing ghat.

Civic body submits delimitation plan to State government

The Tiruchi City Corporation (TCC) has submitted a proposal on delimitation to the State government for extending the city by merging a few areas situated around it.

The proposal, drafted based on a survey on identifying urbanised suburbs belonging to the neighbouring municipal, town panchayats and village panchayats, was submitted to the Commissionerate of Municipal Administration a few days ago, sources said.

The proposal has detailed information on the municipality, town panchayats and village panchayats, which are likely to be merged with the Tiruchi Corporation.

Besides the profile of these areas, the proposal had data on households, distance from Tiruchi city, percentage of agricultural activities, industrial activities and existing basic amenities in the local bodies.


The data had been collected from various government sources and field visits.

According to sources, the villages and town panchayats located within a radius of 3 km from the Tiruchi Corporation limits have been included in the proposal so as to merge them with the Corporation.

Though the proposal is yet to be made public, it is said that several areas including Thuvakudi municipality, Koothaipar town panchayat, Somarasampettai, Malliampathu, Bikshandarkoil, Nachikurichi, Kambarasampettai, Mutharasanallur, Maruthandakurichi and Thalakudi village panchayats have been included in the delimitation plan.

Of them, Thuvakudi and Koothaipar were proposed to be brought under Tiruchi in the last delimitation proposal in 2011 also.

However, they were omitted due to protests from locals.

Stating that it was too early to spell out the areas to be merged with the Corporation, a senior official told The Hindu that the proposal had to pass many stages.

Various parameters fixed by the State government would be analysed in detail before finalising the areas to be added.

There were chances for deleting the predominately agricultural villages from the delimitation plan.

The areas, which were fast developing, would only be merged with the Corporation.

During the last delimitation process in 2011, Tiruchi Corporation was extended by merging areas such as Tiruverumbur town panchayat, Pappakurichi, Ellakudi, Keezha Kalkandarkottai and Alathur village panchayats.

With the delimitation, the total wards went up to 65 from 60.

Against merger

Meanwhile, about 150 residents belonging to Navalpattu thronged the Tiruchi Collectorate here on Monday, protesting against the move to merge their village with the Tiruchi Corporation.

They also presented a petition to Collector K. Rajamani.

Honour for civic body

The Tiruchi Corporation has bagged Skoch Order of Merit for qualifying among the top 50 Swachh Bharat projects in the country.

The recognition has been given for the civic body’s initiative to decentralise solid waste management through micro-composting with community participation. Under the initiative, the Corporation has established micro compost yards across the city to collect and process solid waste at the micro level.

Each yard is designed to handle about three to five tonnes of solid waste. The solid waste collected from the respective localities assigned to each of them are segregated as biodegradable and non-degradable and processed at the site.

Self-help groups have been deployed in processing the solid waste at the compost yards. Biodegradable waste is used for making compost.

Of the 20 such yards planned in the first phase. The civic body got a grant of Rs. 14.82 crore under the Swachh Bharat Mission for the initiative.

Of these, 13 are functioning and work is under way on establishing the yards at seven other locations. Similar compost yards are planned to be set up at nine more locations.

The city generates about 415 tonnes of garbage every day and a major part of it is being dumped at its dump at Ariyamangalam.

The corporation hopes to process about 100 tonnes of solid waste every day locally through these yards ultimately and thereby reduce the quantum of garbage dumped at Ariyamangalam.

The Order of Merit was received by a team of Corporation officials led by S. Amuthavalli, City Engineer (in charge), from Sameer Kochhar, chairman, Skoch Group.Skoch Awards are given by the Skoch Group, a Gurugram-based think tank dealing with socio-economic issues.

Police identify 100 spots for installation of cameras

The police have forwarded a proposal to the State government for installation of a chain of cameras at various spots here for effective monitoring, Commissioner of Police A. Arun said on Friday.

Tiruchi has been allocated a sum of Rs. 55 lakh under the Nirbhaya Fund for installation of cameras, Mr Arun told reporters here.

The police have identified 100 spots for installation of 162 cameras with the video footages to be monitored in a couple of centralised control rooms.

As per the plan, the cameras would be linked with the master control room and the office of the Assistant Commissioner of Police (Law and Order), Srirangam, through optic fibre connectivity.

The technical team of the police would review the functioning of the existing cameras installed at various places here.

Replying to a query, he said thrust had been accorded for free registration of cases.

Giving statistics of grave crime cases reported in the city, Mr. Arun said eight murder cases and 57 robbery cases had been reported within the city limits in the current year up to July.

He said the number of fatal accident cases had come down in 2017 as compared to the previous year. A total number of 149 fatal accident cases were reported in 2016, while it was 90 in the current year till date.

“Our target is to reduce the fatal accident cases by 25%,” he said. The police viewed drunken driving, over speeding, cell phone driving and red light jumping as serious traffic-related offences. A total number of 38 accused have been detained under the Goondas Act this year, he said.

Tiruchi Corporation begins delimitation survey

Quote:
Being carried out on the direction of the Commissioner of Municipal Administration; team of officials deputed to collect data

Close on the heels of a recent Bill passed in the State Assembly for the constitution of a delimitation commission for delimitation of wards of local bodies based on the 2011 census, the Tiruchi City Corporation has begun a survey on identifying urbanised suburbs, which fall in the neighbouring municipal, town panchayats and village panchayat limits.

It is being carried out based on the direction of the Commissionerate of Municipal Administration. Data on households, profile of villages and town panchayats, distance from Tiruchi city, percentage of agricultural activities, industrial activities and existing basic amenities in the local bodies are among the data being collected by the Corporation.

While a team of officials have been deputed to make personal visit to the local bodies to collect data, efforts have been taken to collect data from various government sources. Besides this, the Corporation has asked the Assistant Directors of Panchayats and Town Panchayats, Tiruchi, to furnish data on panchayats and town panchayats around Tiruchi city.

Meanwhile, a team of Tiruchi Corporation led by N. Ravichandran, Special Officer-cum- Commissioner, visited Chennai on Wednesday and participated in a discussion with the senior officials of Commissionerate of Municipal Administration. The meeting was said to have discussed on the ways and means to implement the delimitation plan.

Speaking to The Hindu over phone, Mr. Ravichandran said that it was only a preliminary meeting.

The survey, being undertaken in Tiruchi, would focus on identifying urbanised areas around the city.

On opposition by the villagers of Vengur, Keezha Mullaikudi, Kuvalaikudi and Panayakurichi for the merger plan with Tiruchi Corporation, Mr. Ravichandran said the villages had not been brought under the ambit of the delimitation survey. The villages that had the highest percentage of agricultural activities would be excluded from the survey.

The Tiruchi Corporation limits was extended in 2011 by merging Tiruverumbur town panchayat, Pappakurichi, Ellakudi, Keezha Kalkandarkottai and Alathur village panchayats after the delimitation process. The city is spread over 167.23 sq.km. and has a population of about 10.27 lakh. With the delimitation of local bodies in 2011, the total wards went up to 65 from 60.
