KOLLAM: The land housing the Crowther Masonic Hall near the DCC office here has been identified as the site for constructing the proposed Kollam Court Complex.

The land was inspected for the purpose by a team of revenue officials led by Kollam Tahsildar M. Vishwnathan on Thursday. Mr. Vishwanthan will submit a report to District Collector A. Shajahan in a week’s time. The land comprises 90 cents. The revenue team has also identified 20 cents of puramboke land around the plot. This would also be acquired and it would be sufficient for the court complex, sources said.

Thursday’s inspection was a follow up to the decisions of a high-level meeting of officers of the Home and Revenue Departments in Thiruvananthapuram on August 5. The minutes of the meeting was sent to the District Collector and the minutes had mentioned about the Masonic Hall plot.

The Collector then directed the Tahsildar to inspect the land as a prelude to the land transfer proposal.
