Estimates Committee visits Ayodhyapattinam panchayat union

SALEM: The Estimates Committee of the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly has asked officials of the Public Works Department (PWD) to blacklist contractors if they failed to complete the developmental works within the stipulated time.

Taking to reporters here on Wednesday, committee chairman K. Pichandi said construction of seven hostels for students belonging to the backward class in the district taken up by the PWD last year was yet to be completed. The Government had to incur additional expenditure if the implementation of the works was delayed. Mr. Pichandi said a few developmental works in the district were yet to be taken up for want of clearance from the forest department.

He said the committee had asked sports authorities to submit a technical report about the installation of an artificial turf for the tennis court.

Later the committee members reviewed the progress of developmental works taken up by the departments of rural development, highways, PWD and sports development authority in the district at a meeting. Collector N. Mathivanan presided.

They also visited Ayodhyapattinam panchayat union and inspected the developmental works.

The committee also visited a sanitary napkin manufacturing unit in M. Dathanur and a dry cleaning unit in Udaiyapatti, both run by the self-help groups. It also inspected the site selected for the Information Technology Park.
