Staff Reporter


The Collector said that basic facilities were almost ready in all three rehabilitation sites.


KOCHI: District Collector P. I. Sheikh Pareed has said that land complete with road, water supply, and power will be provided in a month in Mulavukad, Kadamakudy, and Cheranallur villages to rehabilitate families evicted for the Vallarpadam International Container Transshipment Terminal.

Mr. Pareed accompanied by officials of the Revenue Department, Public Works Department, Kerala Water Authority, and Kerala State Electricity Board visited the sites identified for rehabilitation of evictees in all three villages.

Francis Kalathungal, general convener of the coordination committee for the evicted people, and C.R. Neelakantan, social activist and chairman of the committee, expressed satisfaction with the progress of the rehabilitation process.

Mr. Pareed said that necessary instructions had been given to the officials concerned to complete the rehabilitation in a time-bound manner.

The Collector said that basic facilities were almost ready in all three rehabilitation sites.

He said that in two weeks electricity and power supply will be activated. “Evicted families have been asked to apply for the building permit with the local bodies concerned so that construction of houses can be launched once the land is ready,” Mr. Pareed said.

He said that in Moolamppilly in Mulavukad village, basic facilities like electricity and water supply were already in place and only minor improvements on roads remained to be completed. “Road works can be completed in a month if rain stayed away,” he said. Thirteen families were to be rehabilitated here.

He accepted the evictees' demand for a small road and jetty alongside the river banks to bring in construction materials.

Mr. Pareed visited 14 plots in Kothad village and the plot at Thykavu in Cheranalloor village.

Electricity connection

Mr. Kalathungal said that both in Moolamppilly and Kothad village, three phase electricity connection and water supply were already in place and condition of the land was also satisfactory.
