D. Karthikeyan, who was replaced by P.W.C. Davidar as Chennai Corporation Commissioner in December, has been appointed the Corporation Commissioner once again.
Mr.Davidar will take charge as the Chairman and Managing Director of Tamil Nadu Civil Supplies Corporation. During his four-month tenure as Corporation Commissioner, P.W.C. Davidar focussed on giving shape to integrated redevelopment of roads, footpaths, street lights, stormwater drains and cable ducts in the newly added areas of Tiruvottiyur, Manali, Madhavaram, Ambattur, Valasaravakkam, Alandur, Perungudi and Sholinganallur. The project has been funded by the Mega City Development Mission and is likely to change the face of newly added areas. Last year, D. Karthikeyan was transferred weeks after administering the oath of office to the first AIADMK Mayor Saidai S. Duraisamy at a colourful ceremony in the presence of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and Assembly Speaker D. Jayakumar at the Council Chamber in Ripon Building.
