Corporation to mobilise Rs. 60 cr from deposit revision

The Coimbatore Corporation hopes to mobilise Rs. 60 crore from its recent effort to hike the deposit to drinking water connections. The Corporation has said that those who had availed of water connections prior to October 1, 2013 should pay Rs. 4,000 or so if the connection was for their house, Rs. 7,000 or so if the connection was a bulk connection, the same amount if the connection was for commercial use and Rs. 12,000 for industrial use.

The Corporation says that it hopes to mobilise around Rs. 50 crore from those domestic connections that were in use prior to October 1, 2013. At present the Corporation has 1.83 lakh domestic connections.

Similarly, it hopes to raise Rs. 18.27 lakh from bulk connections, another Rs. 4.64 lakh from commercial and Rs. 78.45 lakh from industrial connections.

In all, the estimate is that the civic body would get around Rs. 60 crore.

MoU signed for Smart City lab

Coimbatore Corporation has inked an agreement with German agency, Fraunhofer, to set up a lab for urban development.

Corporation Commissioner K. Vijayakarthikeyan signed the memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Fraunhofer representative Anandhi Iyer in the presence of officials from the Municipal Administration and Water Supply Department in Chennai.

Officials from the German Consulate in Chennai were also present.

Fraunhofer will help the city by giving technical inputs in water supply projects and urban mobility.

It will share its technical expertise and offer consultancy without any financial commitment, though.

The Corporation will also utilise the lab to groom its engineers in city management.
