District Collector P I Sheik Pareeth has said that 252 persons in Rameswaram colony will be given title deeds (pattayam) for their land as part of the Jana Samparka Paripadi.
According to the Collector, the grievances of the residents of Rameswaram colony were brought to the attention of the Chief Minister by the screening committee of the Jana Samparka Paripadi.
Later, the Cabinet decided to grant pattayam for 252 Rameswaram residents.
These residents were earlier staying on the land that was acquired by INS Dronocharaya.
They were later shifted to Rameswaram colony.
They were staying in single-room houses constructed by the Housing Board in 1985 but gradually the condition of the houses deteriorated.
The residents used to shift to the houses of their relatives during the rainy season. Dominic Presentation MLA said he took a special interest to get the title deeds.
The Chief Minister will hand over pattayams to some of the residents during the Jana Samparka Paripadi.
Rest will be given pattayams at a special programme which will be convened at Rameswaram colony later. The Collector said the district administration has arranged special medical facilities for the benefit of the public who are attending the programme.
The medical team will have 10 doctors, 50 paramedical staff, 25 health inspectors and five nursing assistants. Necessary ambulances will be also deployed.
Different departments have also arranged a 100-member volunteer group to direct and help the public.
Red Cross volunteers are also offering their services. Around 15 volunteers are deployed. They will assist the physically unwell and diferently-abled complainants.
The Collector added that special attention will be given to those patients who are coming in ambulances and wheel chairs.
“The Chief Minister has issued directions to specially consider issues that warrant special attention,” the Collector said.
The district administration has also arranged free food for all the complainants. Tight security arrangements have been made for the programme.
