The fruits of the revenue administration must reach the common man even in the remotest corner of the district. AMMA scheme aims at achieving that by taking the green channel mode to disburse Revenue Department-related petitions of the public, Transport Minister V. Senthil Balaji said here on Sunday.
Mr. Senthil Balaji took part in the AMMA scheme camps at Aravakurichi and Pallappatti town panchayat areas, and accepted petitions from the public. Mr. Balaji said that 609 petitions were received from the public in Pallappatti Town Panchayat while another 364 were received from Aravakurichi Town Panchayat.
While in most of them the officials were able to disburse the petitions positively, many needed follow-up action and that was being resorted to, the Minister added. People, especially the rural populace must come forward to utilise the AMMA Scheme, he added. Earlier, the Minister inaugurated roadwork to the tune of Rs. 10.70 crore in various parts of the district. The Karur-Vangal road was developed at a cost of Rs. 2.40 crore while Rs. 53 lakh would be spent for roadwork in the Vengamedu area of the Karur Municipality.
The Pallpaatti-Aravakurichi-Guziliamparai stretch would be developed at a cost of Rs. 1.70 crore while the Aanangur-Kanniavadi stretch would be renovated fully at a cost of Rs. 5.40 crore. Another Rs. 40 lakh would be spent on developing the Karur-Esanatham-Veeriyampatti stretch, the Minister said.
