The South Indian Consumer Protection Association has thanked the State government for taking steps for keeping the ration shops open on the first and second Sundays. This will immensely help the consumers, a resolution adopted at a meeting of the association held here recently said.

Another resolution referred to the crowd in the city buses during peak hours and urged the district administration and the TNSTC to operate ‘student’s specials’ both in the mornings and evenings.

The district administration should take steps to eliminate the difficulties faced by the student community in getting the government certificates through online and ensure that they get the same without any difficulty.

Yet another resolution adopted at the meeting complained at the improper maintenance of the Puliancholai, tourist spot in the district.

The meeting also demanded steps for stringent action against those people who collect kanthu vatti, and displaying railway time tables in Central Bus Stand and Chathiram Bus stand.

The government should take steps for retrieving the temple lands in the hands of encroachers and should launch development works for augmenting the revenue of temples.

M. Muthusamy, executive president of the association, presided over the programme.
