Collector T. Soundiah has asked the officials to work in close co-ordination with the beneficiaries to speed up the construction of houses under Kalaignar Housing Scheme.
The State Government had sanctioned financial assistance to beneficiaries selected under the initial phase of the scheme and the construction works were being carried out.
