Encroachers Seek Time for Relocation

The plan of demolishing two commercial establishments including a gymnasium and a part of a marriage hall was dropped on Thursday, after the owners of buildings assured they would clear the encroachments by January 20.

Town planning officer M Kannan said the building owners were asked to remove the encroachments last week, but they had not complied.

On Thursday, the team visited the Thorapadi Jail Road area again to clear the encroachments hindering the proposed canal restoration work here. The canal, which was a branch of the Nicholson Canal passed from Otteri to Sadhupperi via Palavansathukuppam and Thorapadi. The restoration work between Otteri and Palavansathukuppam had already been carried out, Kannan said.

The power connection was already suspended and the eviction drive will be conducted on January 21, if the encroachments were not cleared by the owners.

The Palani Municipal officials removed more than two-decade-old encroachment on a municipal land meant for establishing a park.

Ramasamy (80), a retired employee of the Palani Municipality who called himself a Gandhian, had reportedly encroached on the land and constructed a house there. The municipality had served several notices on Ramasamy to vacate the place. But he did not oblige.

Amid tight security, the officials shifted the family members from the house and demolished it on Wednesday.

When contacted, Municipal Commissioner K. Saravana Kumar said the municipality had been fighting for the land since 1992.

The civic body got a judgment from court in its favour in 2010. But Ramasamy did not respond to the several notices and warnings issued by the authority. Now, the officials had retrieved the land, he added.
