CMDA also plans to construct an MTC bus stand on five acres of land to operate link services to CMBT and to other parts of the city.
Chennai: Nudging officials to start work on the long pending Kilambakkam bus terminus, Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam, who is also the housing minister, conducted an inspection of the site on Thursday evening.
“The new bus stand that would cater to the southbound buses will be coming up on 88.52-acre land. The detailed project report will be completed in two months and construction will be completed in two years,” Panneerselvam told media persons after the inspection.
According to CMDA officials, the bus stand near Vandalur would cost Rs 321 crore and would accommodate 250 buses every day. “Moreover, nearly 300 spare buses could be parked in the bus stand,” one of the officials said.
CMDA also plans to construct an MTC bus stand on five acres of land to operate link services to CMBT and to other parts of the city. The new bus stand would also accommodate 275 cars and 3,582 two-wheelers apart from housing a police station and a water purification centre among other facilities. “The bus stand will also have escalators to help differently-abled and elderly passengers,” the official said.
CMDA is expected to obtain no objection certificate (NOC) from Archeological Survey of India (ASI) to construct the bus stand. “We have applied for the NOC. Since norms allow the construction activity near the particular archaeological site, the NOC will be given, hopefully,” the CMDA official said. An objection from ASI has been one of the roadblocks impeding the Kilambakkam bus stand, apart from anomalies in land acquisition.

May be sign of a healthier political trend.
Setting a healthy political trend in Tamil Nadu, where the polity is deeply dominated by personality cult, Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Tuesday received Opposition Leader M K Stalin at his chamber in the Secretariat. Stalin was being helpful towards the government to the extent of recommending a slew of steps to resolve the perennial crisis plaguing the transport sector.
Such meetings are rare in Tamil Nadu politics in which the rivalry among the head of the ruling party and those of the main opposition parties would be so intense. In fact, Jayalalithaa and M. Karunanidhi, who alternatively ruled Tamil Nadu for a quarter of a century between 1991 and 2016 after Jaya became CM for the first time, never saw each other eye to eye. This is the first time that Stalin is meeting Palaniswami in his chamber while he has held discussions with the latter's predecessor O Panneerselvam when he was Chief Minister after J Jayalalithaa's death.
Armed with a report prepared by DMK leaders on how to reduce loses and restore the transport department to its old glory, Stalin led a delegation of senior leaders to Palaniswami and submitted the document to him. We will convene another all-party meeting and discuss our next course of action. The Chief Minister received the report, but he did not commit anything, Stalin was to say after the cordial enough meeting.
The DMK Working President has been opposing the recent hike in bus fares by the Tamil Nadu government and had even rallied the entire opposition to protest against the ruling party.
In the report submitted to Palaniswami, the DMK recommended removal of existing taxes on diesel like VAT and levy 10 per cent GST, which will result in an annual savings of Rs 1,600 crore for state-run transport corporations, revenue generation through advertisements and courier services by transport corporations, and attaching buses which ply beyond 200 kms to the State Express Transport Corporations.
The government should also upgrade its luxury buses on par with private bus operators who mint by flaunting their services and allot Rs 1,000 crore every year in the Budget for phasing out of old buses and replacing them with new hi-tech vehicles are some of the other recommendations made in the report.
A five-member panel headed by former Union Surface Transport and Shipping Minister T R Baalu prepared the report. Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Stalin indicated that the government was non-committal on implementing recommendations made in his party’s report. The transport corporations suffer loses every day and have debts to the tune of `16,000 crore.
Police said that Lavanya was immediately moved to a private hospital in Perumbakkam, where she is taking treatment.
A 27-year-old woman software professional was attacked by an unidentified gang on the deserted Thalambur-Perumbakkam road in the southern outskirts of Chennai during the early hours of Tuesday.
Police said the gang had fled with the woman's 3-sovereign gold chain, her iPhone and the scooter she was riding in before dumping her amid the bushes by the roadside.
The victim has been identified as P Lavanya, a native of Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh. Luckily for the woman, a passerby spotted the unconscious woman around 4 am and alerted the police control room.
Pallikaranai Police rushed to the scene and found the woman. With the help of the identity card she was wearing, they contacted her employer — Global Infotech in Navalur on Rajiv Gandhi Salai.
Police said that Lavanya was immediately moved to a private hospital in Perumbakkam, where she is taking treatment. Preliminary probe revealed that Lavanya was living in a rented accommodation at Thalambur, a few kilometers away from her company.
The police said she left her office around 2 am on Tuesday after her shift was over and was riding along the Thalambur-Perumbakkam road. “Her sister resides at Nookampalayam and we suspect that she took the road to reach her sister’s house. However, why she travelled on that road can only be known after she becomes conscious,” a police officer said.
The gang who had trailed her scooter had attacked her from behind leading to her fall. They then took her to the deserted stretch by the road and took her valuables including her scooter and fled. Pallikaranai police have registered cases under at least five sections of IPC including 307 (attempt to murder) and are investigating.
Her family members from Vijayawada were expected to reach the city by Tuesday evening. It is only wicked coincidence that in 2014, on the same date, another woman IT professional was assaulted by a gang. Uma Maheshwari (24), an employee of TCS, Siruseri was initially reported missing. However, police eventually found her dead body a week later in a disused plot of land leading up to her company.
Delimination committee is in the final stage of compiling report.
The much-delayed elections to the local bodies across the state will not be conducted at least for the next three months. This is owed to issues created issues by the stakeholders of democracy.
They range from the State Election Commission (SEC), the AIADMK government and the opposition DMK, all of whom complicated the polls by approaching the Madras High Court and the Supreme Court, thereby ensuring their postponement.
According to sources, the issue dates back to October 2016. The court had also been entertaining the petitions and the affidavits filed by the stakeholders, thereby delaying the natural law of justice. “Justice delayed is justice denied and as per the constitutional mandate, the state deserves elected members in local bodies. But the civic councils have been held up due to bureaucratic delay and pending litigation”, said a former mayor from Western Tamil Nadu, who wished not to be named. The two political parties and the SEC have taken shelter claiming that they are now waiting for the final court orders, he added.
“The state is not in a mood to hold the elections and that’s the reason they are inventing problems and are working slowly on the orders passed by High Court”, said a state official conforming that no communication has been received in connection with the poll arrangements.
When contacted, state election commissioner Malick Feroze Khan said that poll work was very much underway. The delimitation exercise had been completed in all the districts except Chennai. So far seven zonal conferences on delimitation exercise had been completed and the delimitation committee is in the final stage of compiling the report. Once the report from Chennai Corporation is also received a final delimitation report will be sent to the state for its approval.
When all the issues pertaining to women reservation and delimitation are finalised, the SEC will announce the polls. “We have also adhered to Madras High court’s interim orders and another petition is also pending before the Supreme Court”, he said.
The project will be carried out with the help of Government of India under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana scheme.
ISO SIPCOT, Irungattukottai employees would have a township of their own as the National Career Service, an organisation functioning under ministry of labour and employment, is all set to commence benchmark survey for the project on Monday.
“The project will be carried out with the help of Government of India under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana scheme. The city would accommodate 3,000 residents working in SIPCOT Irungattukottai, Oragadam and Sunguvar Chathiram,” R.G. Senthil Kumar, state in-charge, National Career Service, said.Senthil also added that the mega international township would have National Youth Knowledge Park. “The park will provide skill development training to the youth. The benchmark survey will be initiated and we expect Prime Minister might come and lay foundation for the project,” he said.
Police chased the fleeing fishermen and a cop allegedly threw his lathi at them, a fisherman said.
Chennai: A fisherman was killed during a police chase and an alleged attack on him at Kasimedu harbour in Chennai on Friday night. Fisherman Thamilarasu (35) of CG Colony, Kasimedu and his friends were said to be playing cards on a boat docked at Kasimedu harbour on Friday night. Kasimedu policemen, while on rounds, tried to apprehend them. Police chased the fleeing fishermen and a cop allegedly threw his lathi at them, a fisherman said. “The impact of the lathi injured Thamilarasu’s eye and he subsequently fell into the sea and went missing,” the fishermen alleged.
Police and local fishermen found his body onshore later. Meanwhile, the news of Thamilarasu’s death spread among other fishermen and they protested on Saturday morning, seeking action against the policemen who had allegedly chased Thamilarasu.Thamilarasu’s wife Deepika and relatives refused to allow the post-mortem and demanded a government job. However, police officers pacified the agitators.
Plaintiff claims ownership producing forged documents.
Chennai: Coming to the rescue of a 66-year-old man, who has been fighting for over five years to take possession of his property in prime area of Saligrammam, Madras High Court has rejected a suit filed by a person, who attempted to grab the property, claiming ownership based on forged and fraudulent documents.
The court also directed him to pay a cost of Rs 1 lakh to the senior citizen on or before March 28.
Allowing an application from V.V.V. Nachiappan, Justice C.V. Karthikeyan said the plaintiff’s (P.M. Elavarasan) attempt to once again grab by judicial method has to be curbed.
Elavarasan filed a suit seeking declaration that he was the absolute owner of the property, measuring 3,830 sq.ft, and also direction against Nachiappan and his legal heirs to hand over vacant possession of the property. He claimed that he purchased the property from his vendor S.N. Padmanabhan and others for `1.25 crore and the sale deed was executed on April 17, 2013.
When it was presented for registration, the Sub-Registrar, Virugambakkam declined to register the same. He preferred appeals and finally it was pending before the inspector general of registration.
By filing an application, Nachiappan’s counsel S. Thankasivam contended that the Padmanabhan had created forged and fake documents, claiming right over the property.
He had created a release deed registered in the office of sub-registrar, said to have been executed by fictitious persons.
Nachiappan lodged a complaint with the commissioner of police and the registration department. Later, the district registrar cancelled the release deed and other consequential documents.
Suppressing these facts, Padmanabhan and Elavarasan colluded and created a fake sale deed dated April 17, 2013 in the name of Elavarasan. Meanwhile, he appr-oached this court and obtained an order to evict Elavarasan from the property. Thereafter, Elavarasan filed the current suit, Thangasivam added.
The judge said Elavarasan cannot gain any title over the property in the absence of his vendor having any valid title. As a matter of fact, any suit, which was based on fraud and forged documents, has to be summarily rejected by the court.
The plaintiff, having come to the court based on fraudulent documents, cannot have any claim over the properties as the entire documents surrounding the property have been found to be false and forged.
The plaintiff was a land grabber and does not deserve any sympathy whatsoever, the judge added.
