Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Sunday ordered the construction of a ‘Masterplan Complex’ in Tirupur, meant to house all administrative and judicial buildings.

The complex, expected to cost Rs 53.13 crore, will serve as the administrative hub of the district, which was carved out of Coimbatore and Erode districts, in 2008.

It will contain the offices of the District Collector, Superintendent of Police and Fire and Rescue Services Department, apart from an integrated courthouse, other government offices, a guest house and residential quarters for officials.

Jayalalithaa also ordered the transfer of `51.25 crore to the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department, from whom the State government is acquiring the land for the construction of the complex.

A government statement announcing Jayalalithaa’s order said the move was aimed at bringing administrative buildings and court buildings into one concentrated area. The large number of small offices are currently scattered across the town.

Apart from making it easier for the people of the district to get their government business done within a small area, the complex would also make it easier for the various arms of government to coordinate administration better.
