Chief Minister J Jayalilathaa’s announcement that the government would take up a feasibility study for establishing an IT park in the Vellore district has revived the hope for that the district would get an IT park.

An IT park had been a long-pending need of the younger generation of Vellore and one of the poll promises of the Dravidian parties. It was one of the announcements of the CM at the the three-day conference of Collectors in Chennai, on Wednesday.

She said a feasibility study would be done for expansion of Vellore new bus stand. She sanctioned two Armed Reserve (AR) platoons, construction of quarters for 162 AR personnel, new traffic police station for Arakkonam and a building for Vellore police hospital in Vellore. The CM said vehicles would be given to taluk supply officers in the rank of deputy tahsildar in the district.

She said the Vellore Central Prison for Men will be provided a baggage scanner, at a cost of `25 lakh. She said the HR and CE department will bear the expenses on Girivalam and other festivals at Tiruvannamalai temple. Widening of the 14-km Girivalam path, separate highways in Tiruvannamalai were other highlights. Funds for land acquisition for access to burial grounds of BCs and MBCs, five acre of land for a bus stand at Chengam, Thandrampattu, Vettavalam and Avalakottai and two AR platoons were other highlights.
