Trichy Municipal Corporation begins process for area expansion

The Trichy City Municipal Corporation has started working on its area expansion plans, in an effort to make execution of infrastructure projects easier.

Insufficient availability of land, concentrated in a few areas, had become a barrier to executing infrastructure projects.

The development plan will expand the land area, and it would add to the growth of both public and private sectors, which are rallying on the connectivity of the city established in the central part of the state.

The authorities have identified 23 village panchayats in the western, northern, and southwestern parts of the city. Panchayats like Thayanur, Somarasampettai, Nachikurichy, Pitchandarkoil, and Olaiyur are likely to be combined in the proposal.

Manachanallur and Thuvakudi are the closest municipality and town panchayats. Though, it is not clear if the two main towns would be a part of the corporation.

The 23 village panchayats can add a 131sq km area to the city. Officials told the media that all 23 panchayats might not be a part of the jurisdiction.

Trichy city's area was increased to 167 sq km in 2011 from 146 sq km in 2007, after the amalgamation of some panchayats in Thiruverumbur. Although, even at that time, land availability for the civic body was limited to Panjappur on Madurai NH.

Trichy Corporation has a lack of land even in Srirangam to execute the infrastructure projects. Defence and Railways operate important land parcels in the city and suburbs.
