Tambaram among six municipalities in Tamil Nadu will be reclassified as companies
Several residents are certain that several infrastructure developments in these regions will be carried out in the near future.
The Minister of Municipal Administration, Urban Planning and Water Supply, KN Nehru, during the Assembly session on Tuesday August 24, announced that six municipalities would be reclassified as corporations – Tambaram, Kancheepuram, Kumbakonam, Karur, Cuddalore and Sivakasi. Adjacent areas of Tambaram, such as Semakkam, Pallavaram, Pammal and Anakputhur, will fall under the Company’s boundaries, the minister said.
Several residents of these regions have welcomed the decision of the DMK government and are certain that several infrastructure developments in these regions are expected in the near future. “As the Municipality of Tambaram is being transformed into a Corporation, several basic facilities will now be provided to residents. Tambaram and adjacent areas like Chitlapakkam, Chrompet and others do not have underground drainage systems and water connections for individual houses. Therefore, after upgrading to Corporation, we hope all these issues will be resolved, ”said Dayanand Krishnan, member of Pradeep Karthik Avenue Association, Chitlapakkam.
Dayanand, who is confident that infrastructure development will soon be handled by the Tambaram Corporation, said a ten-year request from residents of Tambaram, Chitlapakkam, Chromepet and Pallavaram has been met by the government of Tamil Nadu.
“We hope that under the new Tambaram Corporation we will have a state-of-the-art civic grievance system, good transparent governance, a new domestic water connection, an underground drainage system and a system to save water bodies like lakes and ponds from sewage. pollution and modernized the solid waste management system, ”added Dayanand.
He further urged Tambaram officials to begin work on demarcating neighborhoods and requested the appointment of a commissioner to address residents’ grievances. He further suggested using the funds from the Smart City and Atal Mission for Urban Rejuvenation and Transformation (AMRUT) for infrastructure construction.
In the meantime, in addition to the transformation of municipalities into corporations, several municipal panchayats have been transformed into municipalities.
The cadres of the DMK party in Ulundurpet also celebrated the government’s announcement and welcome the development plans in remote villages and towns.
