Trichy residents up their ante against land acquisition plan

Residents of Nathamadipatti village have upped their ante against the acquisition of their land for Trichy airport expansion project.

They submitted a petition to district collector K Palanisamy here on Monday urging him to stop the land acquisition process as it will affect their livelihood.

Nathamadipatti village is situated near Mavaidikullam, where a number of cultivable lands are located. The state government is planning to acquire over 500 acres for the airport expansion. The expansion plan was necessitated as the runway was short, resulting in several wide-bodied aircrafts to hold their operations to the city.

Recently, the Thiruverumbur tahsildar ordered the eviction of these households without providing them any compensation.

Residents said though several acres of land have been encroached, not a single person has been compensated.

Arul, a villager, said over 1,000 acres were transferred to the army a few years ago and not a single of them were duly compensated. With land constantly being taken up for development, villagers are suffering, he said.

On March 13, the tahsildar came with the police and demarcated some cultivable land and informed the villagers that the above-said land has been taken up for development, Arul said.

In their petition, villagers said former collector Jayashree Muralidharan has provided them with proper irrigation facility. But the present move by officials will affect their livelihood. The villagers are seeking the district administration to provide them with alternative land.

Tiruchi non-major airport the best in the country
An independent agency has carried out a quality survey


The Tiruchi international airport has emerged on top among “non-major” airports in the country in a nationwide survey conducted in 2014.

The airport was adjudged the best based on various parameters taken into account during the course of the airport services quality survey that was conducted twice last year. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) had commissioned two independent agencies to carry out the annual survey in all the airports across the country.

While one agency was entrusted with the task of carrying out the survey in major airports, the other agency was given the job of executing the exercise in non-major airports.

Accordingly, the customer satisfaction survey was done twice – one between January and June and the second between June and December. A team from the agency inspected non-major airports including Tiruchi during this period and looked into various parameters to eventually judge the best one.

The agency had set 33 parameters including passenger facilities, car parking area, cleanliness, ambience, availability of flight information system, feeling of safety and security of travellers and shopping facility to rate the airports.

The Tiruchi international airport secured a total score of 4.70 out of 5 in the survey to emerge on top in the non-major airports category, Airport Director B.C.H. Negi told The Hindu .

The agency’s report was handed over to the AAI corporate headquarters at New Delhi consequent to the completion of the survey.

The AAI had recently sent a communication to the Airport Director conveying the top position Tiruchi airport had secured in the airport services quality survey.

Mr. Negi accompanied by Deputy General Manager (Air Traffic Services) K. Jebaraj would receive the award at a function to be held at New Delhi on April 1 – the annual day of AAI.

The Tiruchi airport from where overseas flights to Colombo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Dubai are operated every day touched 11.90 lakh mark recently in the total number of passengers handled in the 2014-15 financial year.

Separate structure for cargo at airport

To protect and stock the goods meant for export, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has began construction of a huge canopy in front of the cargo complex at the Trichy International Airport. A sum of Rs 50 lakh has been allocated by the AAI for the project.

With the construction having begun 15 days ago, airport authorities have set a target of three months to finish the work. Authorities are confident that the project could be completed earlier as work is moving at a steady pace.

Exporters for long have been complaining that perishable goods stocked at the airport go waste due to the absence of any facility for protecting them.

The AAI floated a tender in December for the construction of a canopy. During the monsoon last year, several exporters incurred loss as perishable goods rotted due to rain. With most countries going in for strict quality checks, exporters saw fall in revenue due to the rotten stock.

Airport director B C H Negi said, "The canopy will benefit exporters in protecting their goods as the structure will withstand all kinds of weather."

He said export of perishable goods is increasing every year from the airport.

The exporters are mostly based in and around the central districts and are rely on farmers in the region who harvest horticultural crops, said a senior cargo official. Goods are exported to South East Asian countries from the airport, he added.

Tiruchi airport canteen to function in a month

Lack of canteen facility at the Tiruchi international airport to serve passengers, visitors, and airport staff besides other stakeholders will soon become a thing of the past.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has awarded the contract to a private agency for running the canteen at the city side of the international airport thereby setting the stage for the opening of this long-felt facility.

A Thanjavur-based agency has been given the contract for five years to run the canteen which has been a persistent demand from air travellers and other agencies connected with the airport.

With the building for running the canteen already in place, the AAI has provided other basic amenities such as electricity and reverse osmosis water cooler required for the operation of the canteen, Airport Director B.C.H. Negi told The Hindu on Friday. The private agency would bring in necessary paraphernalia, including utensils and gas stoves, besides engaging manpower to run the eatery. Now that the contract has been awarded, airport authorities expect that the canteen would become functional within a month.

The constant demand for a full-fledged canteen was kept on various occasions in the wake of steady increase in overseas flights movements and the sharp rise in passenger traffic over the years.

On an average, 15 flights were operated every day from Tiruchi to overseas destinations such as Colombo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Dubai with the number of passengers handled being 3,000 to 3,500 a day. The airport is abuzz even during late hours because of frequent overseas flight movements.

The functioning of a full-fledged canteen was deemed necessary for the airport staff and those working with connected agencies.

Mr. Negi said the canteen would run round-the-clock and serve the passengers and visitors coming to receive or see them off as well as staff of the AAI and other agencies.

Air cargo exports manage to soar

Despite certain unforeseen developments hitting freight movements, the volume of export cargo handled at the Tiruchi international airport has managed to surpass the previous year mark.

With few more days to go for the end of the current fiscal, international cargo handled at the Tiruchi airport has already clocked a little over 4,800 metric tonnes – a slight increase over the previous year figure of 4,773 tonnes.

Officials say stability had been maintained with respect to international cargo growth this fiscal notwithstanding certain developments.

Tiruchi continues to remain way ahead of other international airports such as Goa, Jaipur, Lucknow, Guwahati, Mangalore, Coimbatore and Amritsar in terms of overseas freight movements.

Suspension of export cargo to Male in December due to acute water crisis in the island nation and suspension of cargo uplift to Singapore by the Tiger Airways for a period of three weeks in February gave some testing time to the stakeholders impacting cargo movements.

Intermittent instances of cargo offloading due to space constraints in the available belly space in passenger flights also gave some anxious moments to exporters and other stakeholders.

Despite all these developments, some stability was maintained resulting in the marginal growth this fiscal, say officials.

Singapore has been a major destination for export cargo from Tiruchi followed by some countries in West Asia.

Even though the volume of exports has recorded a steady rise over the years, the profile of Tiruchi air cargo terminal with respect to type of freight handled remains largely unchanged.

Perishable commodities

Perishable commodities continue to account for 90 per cent of export cargo with general cargo being a meagre 10 per cent or even less than that.

Despite its proximity to textile belt districts such as Karur, Erode and Tiruppur, export of textiles through air is yet to take off in a major way from Tiruchi with exporters preferring the sea route to various overseas destinations due to low cost and bulk movement.

Lack of capacity addition, dependency on available belly space in the existing overseas flights and space constraints are factors coming in the way of further buoyancy in exports.

Stakeholders strongly feel that introduction of new passenger flights to different destinations in West Asia or any other destinations, given its heavy demand, would create additional capacity for cargo movement.

This would eventually give a big push to freight exports changing the character of the Tiruchi region, say the stakeholders.
