Dharmapuri: The Dharmapuri Municipality has removed 50 per cent of encroachments on poromboke lands within the town.

Despite repeated warnings from municipal and revenue officials, the encroachers did not vacate these lands.

Following this, a team of revenue officials removed encroachments on Pennagaram Road, municipal main road, Arumuga Achari Road, Abdul Mujeef Road, Mohammed Ali Club Road and Chinnasamy Naidu street within the town.

Steps have been initiated to remove encroachments on Government lands in all the 33 wards in the municipality, officials said.

Officials warned that strict action would be initiated against those who were occupying Government land.

Underground Drainage Scheme will be executed in the town after the encroachments are removed.

The Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage Board will execute the scheme at an outlay of Rs. 32.19 crore.

The newly-renovated Rajagopal Gounder Park, near the bus stand, would be opened for public shortly.

The maintenance of the park would be handed over to self-help groups, said municipal sources.
