TIRUCHI: The boundaries of the Tiruchi Corporation would soon be expanded to include Tiruverambur area also, said K.N.Nehru, Transport Minister here on Tuesday.

Speaking at a function to inaugurate issue of sale deeds to buyers of houses from the Tamil Nadu Housing Board at Navalpattu Anna Nagar on the city outskirts, Mr.Nehru also disclosed that a proposal for building a new by-pass road from Tiruverambur to the Tiruchi-Chennai highway via Vengur and Natarajapuram has been forwarded to the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) for financial assistance.

Another by-pass road linking the Tiruchi-Thanjavur, Tiruchi-Pudukottai and Tiruchi-Madurai highways has already been sanctioned, he said, highlighting the various development measures taken up in the city. About Rs.1,000 crore worth development projects have been sanctioned for Tiruchi over the past four years.

The sale deeds for the TNHB houses have been issued after 28 years, he pointed out, assuring allottees that he would take up with the Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi their demand for waiver or reduction of the interest levied on the capitalisation cost imposed on the allottees by the TNHB.

A representation was submitted to the Minister by the Federation of the Welfare Associations of Anna Nagar seeking the waiver of both the capitalisation cost and the interest . The federation said that the allottees of the TNHB’s Phase I, II and III have been asked to pay a capitalisation cost and interest on it, several years after they had paid the stipulated cost of the houses. The allottees were not informed about their liability with regard to the capitalisation cost. Much to the shock of the allottees, the TNHB has asked them to pay sums ranging from Rs.8,000 to 20,000 as capitalisation cost and from Rs.30,000 to Rs.3 lakhs towards interest on it now.

ELCOT sure of leasing out entire IT Park space in Navalpattu

TIRUCHI: The Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (ELCOT) hopes to complete its 50,000 sq feet building at Navalpattu IT Park by September-October.

The building will have a capacity to accommodate 500 professionals of smaller companies to whom the space will be leased out. The smaller companies will operate from the building till they construct their own buildings, official sources said.

Though the building is scheduled for completion by November, the ELCOT has expedited the process since some start-up companies are already prepared to commence their operations, it is learnt. “Probably the entire 50,000 sq feet space will be leased out to the existing allottees,” informed sources said. Nine bigger companies that have so far been allotted land in the IT Park for constructing their own buildings are expected to start their works by June-July. As per the ELCOT norms, they will have to commence operations within two years from the date they take delivery of the land. The ELCOT is expected to make another EOI (expression of interest) notification for accommodating more such companies within a couple of months. The land will be delivered to the nine companies and the new applicants once the on-going infrastructure works are completed. Works on construction of compound wall, culverts, and six-lane road of 45 metre breadth are in full swing.

The new by-pass will run from Thuvakudi area to the Mathur region on the Tiruchi-Pudukottai Highway and then on to Panchapur on the Tiruchi-Madurai Highway. Another by-pass is being laid between Panchapur and Jeeyapuram on the Tiruchi-Karur Highway.
