    Building completion certificate must to get water, electricity connections: Govt

    TNN | Jul 2, 2018, 00:55 IST

    Coimbatore: No longer public buildings in the state could obtain water and electricity connections without submitting the ‘building completion certificate’ issued by the department of town and country planning.

    A government order mandates inspection of the building at two stages of construction to ensure that the building adheres to the approved plan. All the buildings that had obtained planning permission from the department of town and country planning after April 16, will come under the provision of the order.

    The building completion certificate would be issued only after the owner submits a certificate from the fire service certifying that the building adheres to the fire safety norms. According to the order, industrial buildings and residential buildings up to three dwelling units are exempted from this norm.

    Welcoming the move of the government, K Kathirmathiyon from Coimbatore Consumer Cause, who have been demanding regularization of buildings for years together, said that only if the norms are strictly implemented, public safety could be ensured in the buildings.

    He said there are numerous buildings in the state which do not ensure any safety to the public, but still function for years together without rectifying it.

    As per norms, the temporary electricity and water supply given to the buildings under construction level would be disconnected if they fail to submit completion certificate within a period, he said. Buildings are not permitted to utilize the temporary connection once the construction is completed.

    While the order mandates that a building should ensure that 60% of the parking facilities, he said most of the buildings does not have parking facilities at all. The commuters either park the vehicles on the road or the building owner has a separate parking lot, he said.

    Rather than penalizing the building owner for failing to adhere to the norms, the move of the government to stop electricity and water connections would prevent unauthorized buildings to a larger extend, he added.

        ‘Speed up land acquisition for airport expansion’

        TNN | Updated: Jul 4, 2018, 05:56 IST Representative image

        COIMBATORE: Commissioner of land acquisition has urged the land commission department to speed up the process to acquire land for airport expansion as almost 90% landowners has agreed to give up their land. The department is expected to start the registration process as soon as it receives funds for the same.

        The department has also agreed to consider all demands put forth by the landowners, who are yet to give up their land. They own around 40 acres land.

        After inspecting the land earmarked for the project, commissioner of land acquisition Jeyakodi had last week directed officials to speed up the land acquisition process. “He spoke to the landowners who are willing to part with the land that would account for 90% requirement,” said a collectorate official.

        “Now, we will start documentation process and it involves study of (land) ownership - whether it’s joint family or ancestral property. Based on this, we will work out payment and register land. The registration will take place only after we receive the funds,” he said.

        The state government has allotted Rs 3,400 crore for acquisition of 466 acres land owned by private individuals. “The state government has fixed Rs 900 per sqft for agricultural land and it will translate into 4 crore per acre,” said Vijay Vikraman, a land owner. “However, Rs 1,500 per sqft for residential and industrial land is too less going by the prevailing market rate, which is almost double the price. They are not considering the cost of buildings,” he said. Vikraman also said there was no clarity on any plan to rehabilitate them or offer them an alternate plot.

        The government has, meanwhile, managed to acquire 137 acres of defence land and 22 acres of poromboke land.

          ‘Heritage lines should be free of hawkers and encroachments’

          TNN | Updated: Jul 4, 2018, 05:48 IST

          UDHAGAMANDALAM: Railway stations on heritage lines such as the Nilgiri Mountain Railway (NMR) should be free of hawkers and encroachments, observed the parliamentary committee on estimates at a meeting in Ooty on Saturday.

          The meeting was held between the 12-member committee and eight senior officials of southern railway headed by general manager R K Kulshrestha on ‘estimates and development on eco-tourism in Indian railways’.

          According to railway officials, the salient features of NMR were briefed to the MPs through a presentation.

          On emission of smoke from NMR, Kulshrestha said steam engines were used previously. Now, they had been converted to coal-fired and oil-fired engines to reduce smoke, he said.

          He informed the committee about rides that were started in the past two months between Ooty and Ketti. “If there is demand such services can be extended for two more stations in the section,” he told the committee.

          Stating that non-fare earnings could be used to promote eco-tourism, the railway officials suggested that IRCTC could help NMR to avoid plastic items.

          Besides, the general manager said to the committee that the feasibility of running Bharat Darshan train between Tamil Nadu and Kerala would also be explored.

          On running luxury trains in Tamil Nadu, Kulshrestha said there was no proposal for running luxury trains in the state and operating of luxury trains would be governed by state government.

          Having noted the points given by the officials, the MPs suggested that one or two coaches could be used to treat patients in need of basic medical facilities in all trains .

            Coimbatore airport expansion: Officials asked to speed up land acquisition process

            Pratiksha Ramkumar| TNN | Updated: Jul 3, 2018, 20:18 IST

            Coimbatore airport


            COIMBATORE: The department in charge of acquiring land for expansion of the Coimbatore airport is set to speed up the land acquisition process. Almost 90% of the land owners have agreed to give up their land. The land commission department will start the registration process once it gets the funds.

            The land commission department has also agreed to consider the demands of the opposing land owners.

            Last week, commissioner of land acquisition V K Jeyakodi did a spot inspection of the lands set to be acquired. After the inspection, he ordered officials to speed up the process of acquisition.

            “He spoke to the land owners who have agreed to give up their lands, which forms 90% of the land required,” said a collectorate official. “We have to start the process of documentation which includes studying the ownership, whether it’s a joint family or an ancestral property. It is based on it that we must prepare the land acquisition document, disburse the payment and register the land,” he said.

            “While we have begun studying the ownership documents and the documentation process, the registration can take place only once the funds are handed over to us,” he said.

            The state government has allotted Rs 2,000 crore for acquisition of 466 acres of land owned by private individuals. By April, owners of the 90% of land marked for acquisition agreed to give up their land. “The state government has fixed a price of Rs 900 per sq ft for agricultural land, which is almost double of what the owners expected. It comes to Rs 4 crore per acre or Rs 40 crore for 10 acres,” said land owner Vijay Vikraman.

            “However, the price fixed at Rs 1,500 per sq ft for residential and industrial land is too less because the going rate in the market is almost double the price and they are not considering the cost of the buildings in those lands,” he said.

            “There is also no clarity on any plans to rehabilitate us or offer us an alternate plot of land,” he said. The government has also managed to acquire 137 acres of defence land and 28 acres of poromboke land.

            The land owners opposing the acquisition own around 40 acres of the land marked for acquisition. The land commissioner is said to have agreed to consider their requests.

              After several petitions by residents, Coimbatore Corporation starts to lay road in K K Pudur

              Pratiksha Ramkumar| TNN | Jul 3, 2018, 19:51 IST

              COIMBATORE: Residents of K K Pudur heaved a sigh of relief on Tuesday after Coimbatore Corporation officials landed up on their road with an excavator and tar.

              For more than one and half years, the residents and the area’s former councillor, K M Ravi, have been petitioning the civic body to lay the road. The road was dug up almost two years ago to lay the main Siruvani water pipeline.

              The residents were relieved when they saw a Coimbatore Corporation excavator entering the sixth street, also called Manian Vellalar Street, on Tuesday morning. Some workers also were seen bringing in gravel and tar.

              “The corporation seems to have finally heard our petition,” says Sumathi K, a resident of Venkittapuram, who used that road to by pass the busy NSR Road and reach the Mettupalayam Road.

              “This is a critical interior road used by residents of Jeeva Nagar and Venkittapuram to reach Kavundampalayam and the Mettupalayam Road, said councillor, K M Ravi. “Even minibuses run on this road,” he said.

              Residents said the corporation had allotted funds for relaying the road even before it was dug up for laying the water pipe underneath it. “However, they had not laid the road for more than a year after the pipe laying was completed,” said Vishnu S, a resident of the area.

              “Sources said it was because I was the councillor of the ward and I belonged to DMK,” said Ravi.

              “However, I recently met MLA PRG Arun Kumar who agreed to lay the road with his funds and it has come to fruition finally. We are thankfully to the civic body,” he added.

                CPM leader asks government to make papers on water supply public

                TNN | Updated: Jul 4, 2018, 05:14 IST Representative image

                COIMBATORE: CPM politburo member, G Ramakrishnan demanded that the state government make the contract signed with Suez Projects for water supply scheme in Coimbatore public.

                Talking to reporters on Tuesday, Ramakrishnan said the government and the Coimbatore corporation were misleading the public on the drinking water supply privatisation project.

                He said Coimbatore corporation has failed to clarify the apprehensions raised by the people about the multi-crore project.

                “The newspaper advertisement issued by the civic body on the project was misleading and contradictory,” he said urging that the state government and corporation should stop feeding wrong information about the drinking water scheme.

                Accusing the state government of crippling civil rights, he said cases were registered against those raising their voice against the government and arrested. “The eight lane green corridor from Salem to Chennai is unnecessary since there are two other highway stretches between the two places,’’ he said.

                Slamming the BJP, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi proclaims to have brought growth after implementation of GST, but fails to talk about unemployment and closure of small units GST implementation. The state government had admitted that 50,000 industrial units were closed.

                    Corporation to replace 100-year-old technique to improve water supply

                    TNN | Updated: Jul 4, 2018, 05:25 IST Representative image

                    COIMBATORE: In order to improve the water distribution system in the city, the civic body is all set to take a giant leap forward by replacing more than 100-year-old technique, which had been in use since the British era, with the pressure management technique. The result will be equitable distribution.

                    “The move will help us to ensure that equal amount of good quality water is distributed to all the households,” a senior corporation official said.

                    The major development will be implementation of hydraulic pressure modelling technology, said a source with Suez India Private Limited, which is incharge of implementing 24x7 water supply scheme in 60 wards of old corporation limits.

                    On an average, 200MLD of water from Siruvani and Pillur reservoirs is distributed to these wards and the latest pipelines laid in the limits are 40 years old.

                    Explaining that hydraulic pressure modelling in water distribution system could be achieved by dividing the entire network into small sections, the source said it would prevent huge amount of water loss.

                    For implementing it, 32 zones in the old corporation limits would be divided into 101 divisions. Each division would have a commanding area, where water discharged from reservoirs would be stored before releasing it to the buildings.

                    By increasing commanding areas, it is possible to maintain equal water pressure throughout the supply network, official said. Plans are also on to construct 29 additional water tanks in the old corporation limits.

                    In order to tighten the monitoring system and ensure that pressure does not reduce, the official said, they would also install supervisory control and data acquisition at frequent intervals to monitor water level.

                    When water pressure remains constant throughout the network, equal distribution of water could be achieved easily, the source said.

                    The technology, which has been implemented in several parts of the country, would not only improve supply system, but also reduce contamination and minimize the distribution losses as water pressure and flow is measured at equal intervals.

                    Explaining that apart from releasing water from reservoirs, there would be no intervention in water flow unless there were some serious issues, the official said due to increase in multi-storeyed buildings and population, presently there has been an increase in the quantity of water drawn and water consumption time.

                    “Most often, buildings at the tail end receive water only after hours of delay. The new technology would address the issue,” the official said.

                      COIMBATORE: Residents of K K Pudur on Tuesday morning heaved a sigh of relief after city corporation officials landed up in their area with a road roller and tar. They have been petitioning the civic body for about one and half years to lay the road in Manian Vellalar Street, also called sixth street.

                      The road was dug up to lay the main pipeline for Siruvani water almost two years ago. “The corporation seems to have finally decided to heed to our petitions,” says Sumathi K, a resident of Venkittapuram, who uses the road to skip the busy NSR Road to reach Mettupalayam Road.

                      “This is a critical interior road used by residents of Jeeva Nagar and Venkittapuram to reach Kavundampalayam and Mettupalayam Road,” said former councillor of the area K M Ravi. “Even mini buses take this road.”

                      Residents say the corporation had allotted funds for relaying the road even before it was dug up for laying the pipeline. “However, it did not lay the road for more than a year after the pipe-laying works were completed,” said Vishnu S, a resident of the area.

                      “I recently met MLA PRG Arun Kumar who agreed to lay the road with MLA local funds. They put puja for the project almost a month ago but did not start the project,” Ravi said. “We began putting up posters about inaction by officials, which probably pushed them to act.”
