Monorail: Work to begin early next year


Delhi Metro Rail Corporation former chairman and chief adviser to the monorail projects in the state, E Sreedharan, said on Saturday that the work on the `1,991-crore monorail project in Kozhikode would commence by the second week of February next year.

After the inauguration of a new office of the DMRC in Kozhikode, Sreedharan said the progress of the implementation of the project would depend on the land acquisition process.

The project would be launched in two phases, with the first phase covering the distance between Medical College and Mananchira Junction and the second phase from Mananchira to Meenchanda Junction.

“If the land acquisition process can be completed earlier, work can be expedited for the second phase. The project will be completed within three years after the commencement of the work,” he added.

More funds for railway projects




The state Cabinet on Friday has decided to sanction `350 crore additional funds for the speedy completion of railway projects.

Recently, the government had announced `200 crore for the projects.

The decision comes in the wake of Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge expressing his displeasure at the state government’s negligence in implementing railway projects.

Kharge had announced an additional `600 crore from the Railway Ministry for projects being envisaged for the state.The Cabinet also approved the proposal to set up Karnataka Spices Development Board in Hubli with an initial grant of `2 crore.

It was also decided to constitute vigilance committees at Gram and Zilla Panchayat levels to check irregularities in the implementation of National Food Security Act. “The committees would review allotment and distribution of food grains to fair price shops to prevent any misuse or pilferage of food grains,” Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister T B Jayachandra said briefing the media after the Cabinet meeting.

For Public Health

The Cabinet gave its nod to set up Indian Institute of Public Health in Bangalore at `127 crore. The amount for the rehabilitation of Endosulfan victims in coastal region was increased from `5 to `20 crore.

For 2014, the Cabinet has approved 22 general holidays for government offices. The detailed list would be released soon. The Cabinet rejected the proposal of Jayachandra to cancel the holiday for government offices on the second Saturday of every month.

Foot-and-mouth Disease

The Cabinet decided to pay a compensation of `25,000 for the death of each milch cow or buffalo, which died due to foot-and-mouth disease. “We are yet to finalise the government order,” Jayachandra said. The farmers are likely to get `10,000-15,000 for the death of a calf.

The decision has come in the wake of Opposition Leader H D Kumaraswamy’s threat to launch a padayatra demanding compensation for farmers. Kumaraswamy demanded a compensation of `25,000 for the death of each cattle.
