Kottur is the name, says ex-MLA

CHENNAI, NOV. 29. The MRTS (Mass Rapid Transit System) station at Kotturpuram should be renamed Kottur, which is how the place has been known for 300 years, according to former MLA R.S. Sridhar.

However, nothing has been done despite several reminders, he said.

Four years ago, when he addressed the Railway Ministry seeking the name change, senior officers in-charge of the MRTS and the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority had assured them they would do so. But nothing had come of it.

Mr. Sridhar cited revenue records to support his contention that Kottur was the original name.
