Traders want integrated complex on the lines of Koyambedu market

Image

Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani on Thursday held a meeting with representatives of some of the wholesale traders associations of Gandhi Market to discuss the civic body’s plans to shift some sections of the wholesale traders.

The meeting comes close on the heels of Mayor A. Jaya’s recent announcement on shifting the onion wholesale traders to the Sengulam Colony market and part of the banana wholesale section to Virugapettai overhead water tank complex.

While the onion wholesale traders are currently functioning along the Sub-Jail Road outside Gandhi Market, banana traders are operating out of shops adjacent to the market.

Mr. Thandapani, according to sources in the associations which participated in the preliminary meeting, briefed the traders on the civic body’s latest plans to decongest the market and its immediate surroundings to ease the traffic congestion. The corporation, he said, had planned to establish an integrated market complex at Panchapur on the outskirts to move the wholesale sections of Gandhi Market. Besides, it had planned to renovate Gandhi Market in three phases.

The civic body had planned to shift the onion wholesale market and part of the banana wholesale traders as an interim measure until the integrated market was built over the next few years.

A cross-section of the traders, who attended the meeting, however, reiterated their demand that the corporation establish an integrated market on the lines of Koyambedu market in Chennai, and opposed the move to shift the wholesale traders in bits and pieces. Traders could not shift to different places frequently as it would affect their business. Corporation sources indicated that the Mayor was likely to hold a consultative meeting with the traders next week.Mr. Thandapani also urged the traders to come forward to settle pending tax litigations through the mega Lok Adalat planned on November 23.

மாநகராட்சி கமிஷனர் பெருமிதம் கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பில் திருச்சி முன்னோடி

திருச்சி: ""பொது கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பில் திருச்சி முன்னோடியாக திகழ்கிறது,'' என, மாநகராட்சி கமிஷனர் தண்டபாணி கூறினார்.

திருச்சி மாநகராட்சி சார்பில் உலக கழிவறை தின நாள் கொண்டாடப்பட்டது. மாநகராட்சி மைய அலுவலக வளாகத்தில் நடந்த இந்த விழாவுக்கு மேயர் ஜெயா தலைமை வகித்தார்.

விழாவுக்கு முன்னிலை வகித்த மாநகராட்சி கமிஷனர் தண்டபாணி பேசியதாவது:
ஆண்டுதோறும் நவம்பர் 19ம் தேதி உலக கழிவறை தினமாக கொண்டாடப்படுகிறது. திருச்சி மாநகராட்சியில் 286 குடிசைப் பகுதிகள் உள்ளன. 4 ஆயிரத்து 643 இருக்கைகள் கொண்ட, 383 பொது கழிப்பிடங்கள் உள்ளன.

இவற்றில், கடந்த 2008ம் ஆண்டு முதல் கிராமாலயா தொண்டு நிறுவனத்தின் அலைகள் மகளிர் குழு சார்பில் 67, ஸ்கோப் சார்பில் 28, சேவை சார்பில் 42, என மொத்தம் 137 பொது கழிப்பிடங்கள் பராமரிக்கப்பட்டு வருகிறது. இதன் மூலம் சமுதாயம் சார்ந்த கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பில் திருச்சி மாநகராட்சி முன்னோடியாக உள்ளது.
உலக கழிப்பறை தினத்தை முன்னிட்டு, 76 மாநகராட்சி பள்ளிகள், தனியார் பள்ளிகளில் கழிப்பிட பயன்பாடு, பராமரிப்பின் அவசியம் குறித்த விழப்புணர்வு துண்டு பிரசுரங்கள், திறந்த வெளி கழிப்பிடங்களை புறக்கணித்தல் குறித்த போஸ்டர்கள் வழங்கப்பட்டு, பள்ளி துவங்கும் முன் உறுதி மொழி ஏற்கப்பட்டது.
இவ்வாறு அவர் பேசினார்.

கிராமாலயா நிறுவனர் தாமோதரன் பேசுகையில், ""மிக சுகாதாரமான நாடாக விளங்கும் சிங்கப்பூரில் தான் முதன்முதலாக 2001ம் ஆண்டு உலக கழிப்பறை தின அறிவிப்பு வெளியிடப்பட்டது. ஒரு காலத்தில் திருச்சியில் இருந்து குஜராத், வார்தா போன்ற பகுதிகளுக்கு சென்று கழிப்பிட பராமரிப்பு, அமைத்தல் குறித்து பார்வையிட்டு திரும்பிய நிலை மாறி, தற்போது உலக அளவில் இருந்து திருச்சியில் உள்ள கழிப்பிட வசதிகளை பார்வையிடும் நிலை உருவாகியுள்ளது,'' என்றார்.
விழாவில், சிறப்பாக கழிப்பிடங்களை பராமரித்த கிராமாலயா அலைகள் குழுவை சேர்ந்த 12 குழுக்களுக்கு பரிசுகளை மேயர் ஜெயா வழங்கி, கிராமாலயா இணைதளத்தையும் துவக்கி வைத்தார்.

Good better to move the entire market, so now Panchapur is ruled out for integrated bus stand option.

Integrated market to come up at Panchapur

Project to see fruition in two-and-a-half years: Commissioner

The Tiruchirapalli City Corporation has planned to establish an integrated market complex at Panchapur on the outskirts of the city to move the wholesale sections of the Gandhi Market.

The recent plans on shifting the onion wholesale market to the Sengulam Colony Market and build some shops for the banana market at Viragupettai overhead water tank complex are only aimed at decongesting the Gandhi Market and easing traffic flow around the market, said Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani here on Tuesday.

“We have drawn up a master plan to create an integrated market complex at Panchapur. However, the project could take about two to two-and-a-half years to come to fruition. In the meantime, the shifting of the onion wholesale market and partial shifting of banana to Viragupettai are interim measures,” he said, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function got up in connection with the World Toilet Day at the Corporation.

The Commissioner’s statement comes in the wake of the disappointment expressed by onion and banana wholesale traders over the civic body’s recent announcement on shifting the onion wholesale market and part of the banana wholesale traders. The traders associations had favoured shifting of the market to an integrated complex.

The corporation move comes following several unsuccessful attempts to identify a suitable site for shifting the wholesale section of Gandhi Market to the outskirts over the past couple of decades.

Just a few months ago, the civic body had announced a plan to shift the onion and banana traders to G. Corner grounds near Golden Rock only to drop it owing to certain legal impediments.

Mr. Thandapani said the proposal to renovate the Gandhi Market, established about 70 years ago, would be executed in three phases. Once renovated, the market spread over about 6.5 acres, could cater to the retail shops. The civic body has also taken up construction of a modern slaughter house behind the market. It has also decided to set up modern fish market one behind the Gandhi Market and the other on the Kuzhumani Road.

“The measures are aimed at easing the traffic congestion around the market pending the establishment of the integrated market complex,” he said.

Ready to move if the entire market is shifted

Tiruchirapalli City Corporation’s recent announcement on shifting parts of the wholesale section of Gandhi Market has failed to enthuse the trading community. Last week, Mayor A. Jaya had announced that the onion wholesale traders would be shifted to Sengulam Colony Market. The corporation, she had said, would also build some shops for the banana wholesale traders at the overhead tank complex at Viragupettai.

Although both the moves were aimed at decongesting the Gandhi Market area, traders remain critical of the corporation’s sporadic announcements on one plan or other to shift the wholesale traders in bits and pieces without consulting stakeholders. “We are fed up with the frequent announcements made by the corporation in the media. There has been no consultation whatsoever with us so far to assess our requirements or elicit our suggestions,” say representatives of traders associations.

The corporation move comes following several unsuccessful attempts to identify a suitable site for shifting the wholesale section of Gandhi Market to the outskirts over the past couple of decades. Just a few months ago, the civic body had announced a plan to shift the onion and banana traders to G.Corner grounds near Golden Rock only to drop it later after running into certain practical and legal problems.

The recent announcements from the corporation indicate that it has effectively dropped its previous plan to shift the entire wholesale section of the market to the outskirts. Over the past decade, the civic administration has considered various sites for shifting the market and a few years ago, decided to move the wholesale market to Ariyamangalam by acquiring a piece of land owned by the Aavin.

But the Madras High Court Bench struck down the sale of 3.39 acres of land belonging to Tiruchi District Cooperative Milk Producers Union (Aavin) to the corporation. The “sale” of the old dairy farm to the corporation was pushed through hurriedly during the previous government despite stiff opposition from milk producers. Prior to this, the corporation had planned to shift the wholesale markets to a site off the Chennai Bypass Road, also close to Ariyamangalam. The proposal too had failed to take off.

Left with no other option, the corporation now seems to toying with the idea of shifting the wholesale trade in different groups. “It is impractical to shift the wholesale traders in bits and pieces to different parts of the city. We have about 40 wholesale traders and 22 retail banana traders. We need a huge space to unload nearly 10,000 banana bunches which come to the market every day and auction them. It is not possible to shift some of the shops to Virugupettai,” said K.P. Palanivel of Plantain Traders Association at Gandhi Market.

Banana traders insist that the corporation find a suitable site to shift the entire Gandhi Market to the outskirts. “We are willing to move out if the entire market is shifted. It is not possible for us to separate the wholesale and retail trade,” he said.

Onion wholesale traders too have been willing to move out. But they too feel that it would be better if all wholesale traders or the entire market was shifted. “The corporation should plan and go in for an integrated market complex rather than trying to split the wholesale and retail trade,” said a senior representative of the onion traders’ association.

Corporation officials say the prohibitive land cost was the main impediment in getting a site large enough to accommodate all the wholesale traders in one place. Although agencies could be found to fund the construction of the market, no agency would give funds for purchase of lands, they said.

Heavy rain exposes poor drainage system

Normal life was hit as heavy rain lashed Tiruchi district on Saturday as the depression in the southwest Bay of Bengal crossed the Nagapattinam coast during the day.

The rainfall is considered timely and beneficial for farmers, especially in the non-delta areas, where farmers were worried over the poor rainfall during the northeast monsoon so far this year.

Incessant rains lashed the city right through the day, inundating several low-lying areas. The rain which started as moderate showers in the early hours of the day grew heavier by noon as the depression crossed the coast by afternoon. Squally and chilly weather prevailed due to the sustained rain. Visibility was poor and vehicles moved with their headlights on.

Several arterial roads in the city were left inundated as the ill maintained and inadequate network of storm water drains in the city were flooded. Road traffic moved at snail’s pace due to water logging on the Madurai Road, Thillai Nagar, Woraiyur, Pattabiraman Pillai Road, Lawsons Road and around the Central and Chathram bus stands in the city. Two-wheeler riders were left stranded as their vehicles broke down on the flooded roads in some places. The Melapudur underpass was flooded by evening and closed for traffic. Vehicles were diverted via Marsinghpet.

In recent years, the city has been witnessing similar scenes during monsoon as the Corporation has been awaiting funds from the government for over a decade now for executing an ambitious storm water drainage project for the city. Although the civic body has cleared the silt in some of the major drains in the past two months, the works were carried out in bits and pieces and has proven to be ineffective.

“Most of the city roads turn water ways whenever there is heavy rainfall. This has become a tiresome experience every year as we struggle to negotiate the roads flooded with rain water and sewage. Nobody seems to bother about the plight of common man,” said an irate city resident, Ramesh.

Farmers of the district though had reason to cheer . The much needed rain raised the hopes of farmers in the non-delta areas to take up samba paddy transplantation.

“The rain is welcome sign, but it needs to continue for the next few days to be of real help to farmers in the non-delta areas who depend on irrigation tanks. The rain will be beneficial for maize and cotton crops. But whether it will help farmers take up paddy cultivation in the non-delta areas will depend on how good the rain is over the next 10 days,” said Ayilai Sivasuriyan, district secretary of the CPI-affiliated Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sangam.

Agriculture Department officials say that the rain will definitely prove beneficial for farmers in the district, which has recorded deficient rainfall during the Northeast monsoon.

According to figures available at the website of the Regional Meteorological Centre, Chennai, the district had recorded just 115.06 mm of rainfall between October 1 and November 13 against the normal of 251 mm for the period, making for deficit of 54 per cent.

While samba paddy has been raised in 35,500 hectares in the canal irrigated delta areas of the district, transplantation has been completed only in about 8,000 hectares of the targeted 31,000 hectares in the non-delta areas so far.

Officials were hopeful that the targeted area in the non-delta region would be covered if the rain continued for next few days.

Water purifier opened at Samayapuram

Image

A reverse osmosis technique based drinking water purifier unit was inaugurated at the Samayapuram Sri Mariamman temple near here on Thursday.

This is an additional facility to devotees in ensuring supply of protected and safe drinking water. The water purifier unit will ensure supply of 3,000 litres of purified water an hour. A maximum of 15,000 litres would be supplied daily to the devotees, he said.

“Many devotees will benefit through the water purifier,” says G. Thennarasu, Joint Commissioner and Executive Officer of the temple. Devotees reach the temple on padayatra on several occasions and the water purifier would cater to the needs of a large number of them.

Apart from use for potable purpose, the water got from the purifier unit would be used for cooking food for free meals (Annadhanam).

Ragunath Narayanan, chairman of Europa group of companies, which donated the purifier unit, inaugurated the facility on Thursday.

Rainwater harvesting structures planned along storm-water drains

Image

The Tiruchirapalli City Corporation has planned to set up rainwater harvesting structures (RWH) along the storm-water drains in the city soon.

“We have storm-water drains running for about 650 km in the city and RWH structures could be put up every 10 metres along the drains. The structures will have filter beds and pipes running into the ground for up to 20 metres depth to recharge the water table. We will soon incorporate the provision for RWH structures in the design of the storm-water drains,” said Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani here on Wednesday.

He was speaking at a workshop on “simple steps to achieve water sufficiency — rainwater harvesting and grey water recycling,” organised by Rain Centre, Chennai, in the city.

The workshop was meant for members of the media, architects, builders, municipal engineers, and town planners.

Mr. Thandapani, who inaugurated the workshop, pointed out that the corporation had framed bylaws making it illegal for residents to let out sullage from toilets into open drains. Once the bylaws were gazetted, the corporation would launch a campaign to sensitise residents against letting out sullage into the storm-water drains.

Emphasising the need for proper design and maintenance of rainwater harvesting structures, Mr. Thandapani said the corporation had conducted a survey recently and found that nearly 80 per cent of the 1.85 lakh properties in the city had RWH structures. However, many of them were not properly maintained and needed to be revived.

He said most of the RWH structures had not been 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 and excess rainwater often flowed on to the streets. Builders and engineers should design the RWH structures properly to tap the maximum potential for harvesting rainwater. City residents needed to be educated more on creating proper RWH structures, he said.

Sekhar Raghavan, Director, Rain Centre, Chennai, said although the concept of rainwater harvesting had been talked about for 10 years, it had still not got the importance it deserved. Designing RWH structure for a particular site had not been well understood. These structures had not been maintained properly.

Builders, architects, and engineers had a responsibility to ensure proper design of the structures and implement the concept correctly.

The 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 were organised in Coimbatore, Madurai, and Tiruchi, he said.

V. Ganapathy, Liaison Officer, SCOPE, Tiruchi, spoke.

Technical sessions were held on rainwater harvesting and water security.

கருமண்டபம் பகுதியில் சாலை அகலப்படுத்தும் பணி தீவிரம்

திருச்சி, : தினகரன் செய்தி எதிரொலியாக திருச்சி கருமண்டபம் பகுதியில் சாலை அகலப்படுத்தும் பணிகள் தீவிரமாக நடந்து வருகின்றன.

திருச்சி-மணப்பாறை நெடுஞ்சாலையில் மத்திய பேருந்து நிலையத்தை அடுத்துள்ள அரிஸ்டோ ரவுண்டானா பகுதியிலிருந்து ராம்ஜிநகர் வரை சுமார் 10 கி.மீ. தொலைவுக்கு சாலைகள் மிகவும் மோசமாக உள்ளது. சாலையின் இருபுறமும் போதிய இடவசதியிருந்தும், அகலப்படுத்தப்படவில்லை.

மேலும் நகரை சுற்றி அமைக்கப்பட்டு வரும் அரை வட்டச்சாலையும், இதேபகுதியில் உள்ள பஞ்சப்பூர் அருகே நில ஆர்ஜிதம் செய்வதில் ஏற்பட்ட பிரச்னை காரணமாக சாலைப் பணிகள் சுணங்கியுள்ளன. இதனால் திருச்சி-மணப்பாறை சாலையில் ராம்ஜி நகரிலிருந்து அரிஸ்டோ ரவுண்டான வரை கடும் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடியும், சாலை விபத்துக்களும் ஏற்படுகின்றன. கருமண்டபம் பகுதியில் சாலையின் இருபுறமும் போதிய இடவசதியிருந்தும் அகலப்படுத்தப்படவில்லை. இதுகுறித்து தினகரன் நாளிதழ் கடந்த மாதம் 26ம் தேதி வெளியான செய்தியில் சுட்டிக்காட்டியது.

இதனையடுத்து கருமண்டபத்தை அடுத்துள்ள தீரன் நகரிலிருந்து ராம்ஜி நகர் வரையுள்ள சாலை புதிதாக போடப்பட்டுள்ளது. அதன் தொடர்ச்சியாக அரிஸ்டோ ரவுண்டானாவிலிருந்து கருமண்டபம் செக்போஸ்ட் வரை சாலையின் இடது பகுதியை அகலப்படுத்தும் பணிகள் துவங்கி தீவிரமாக நடைபெற்று வருகின்றன. பொக்லைன் கொண்டு சாலையின் ஓரம் சுமார் 5 அடி அகலத்துக்கும் இரண்டரை அடி ஆழத்துக்கும் பள்ளம் தோண்டி, அதில் கான்கிரீட் கலவை போடும் பணிகள் தீவிரமாக நடந்து வருகின்றன.

அதன் பின்னர் அகலப்படுத்திய பகுதியில் தார்சாலை போடப்படும். தற்போது ஒருபுறம் மட்டும் சாலை அகலப்படுத்தப்படுகின்றன. இதேபோல மறுபுறமும் (வலப்புறமும்) அகலப்படுத்தி சாலையில் சென்டர் மீடியன் அமைத்தால் இப்பகுதியில் போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி குறைவதுடன், விபத்துக்களும் தடுக்கப்படும் என இப்பகுதியைச் சேர்ந்தவர்கள் எதிர்பார்க்கின்றனர்.
