The development plan of Maradu municipality, with its focus on charity programmes, was released by Excise Minster K Babu here on Tuesday.

As per the plan Rs 6 lakh has been allocated to provide financial aid to the differently abled and asthma patients in the region.

“We have given special focus to charity programmes in the new development plan,” said municipal chairman T

K Devarajan. The municipality had completed the survey of the physically-challenged people in the area. It will provide financial assistance to the needy.

The survey to spot the mentally challenged and asthma people will be conducted soon, after which financial aid will be disbursed. If the fund already allocated to the project is proved inadequate after the survey, the municipality will raise the amount for the programme, Devarajan said.

The development plan also includes two new projects. Flood lights and walkway will be set up at Maradu Mangai School ground. An amount of Rs 5 lakh will be earmarked for the project. An amount of Rs 2 lakh has been set apart for a public park in Kundanoor, while Rs 3 lakh has been earmarked to provide insurance coverage for students. The total amount set aside in the development plan is Rs 4 crore.
