Dil, 75 cores investment for the Institute looks a promising one for Kollam.

Infact, if we see the recent progress regarding manufacturing and educational institutes in the Neendakara - Chavara - Amrithpuri region especially after minister Shibu has waken up recently, it signals a great future of a education corridor at this stretch.

Maritime Institite, Intitute of Infrastructure Development, Natural Fibre Park and lots of quality institutions at the Amrithapuri Campus.

Infact, I thought South Kollam had a better prospect regarding educational institutes....but now North Kollam is picking up which is a good sign.

And its a huge amount, which comes around Rs 75 Crores. Nice to see many institutes of national grades coming up in and around Kollam

Yogesh, for the time being let them start at Parvathy mills premised if that is the easier and viable one to secure a medical college. As some districts are even getting second state government medical colleges..let the government acquire land at Kollam Bypass now itself for a bigger medical college for future. Future land acqusition will be a head ache for any projects if they ingore it now.

In any case we require a state government medical college at the Bypass from a future perspective. Otherwise, these precious locations in the Bypass will be occupied by Private Hospitals and Residential projects in future without leaving any space.

In Trissur, the state medical collge was at the city centre at Swaraj round some 10 to 12 years before...but later they shifted the medical college to bigger campus at Mulakunthathukavu which is 10 to 12 Kms away from the city. I assume the old medical college is still used as a General Hospital. Fellow Trissur forummers may correct if I am wrong.

New medical college is in M.G Kavu 8-10km Away from city...Due to this replacement of campus and upgradation of Medical University...there is lot of developement from city to this medical college area..The roads are four lined and 2 Or 3 railway over bridges came to connect MEdical collage from many link routes etc..................

Thank you for that informative update, Frank. Yes..Trissur city has benefitted from the relocation of the medical college to Mulankunathukavu and infact it gave two good state government hospitals to the city and district. It is great that now new blocks are coming up in the General Hospital which is at the city centre making the General Hospital for the immedeate Healthcare needs of the Trissurians.

Infact, the elected representatives and government should see the good things and model works happening in other cities and districts and adopt these in those cities which lacks these facilities? Here our district panchayath and city corporation have no idea what is going around even in the meighbouring cities and districts.

Based on the information from the Trissur thread, what I understand a lot of road widening projects especially 4-laning is going on which is really important for the development of a city. Trissur is defintely going to benefit from this as it is already entering into a differnt league of development. Why cannot Kollam also join this bandwagon as both Kollam and Trissur became municipal corporation on the same day on 1st October in the millenium year 2000?

Its been 12 years after municipal corporation status and what is the status of the important roads in Kollam. We can showcase only the Kappalandimukku - Ashramam 4-lane road and the Thankasseri - KollamPort - Kollam Beach 4-lane road which is still not tarred and completed. Though Kappalandimukku - Ashramam 4-lane road is considered as a 4-lane road but it becomes a 4-lane road only when two wheelers, 3 wheelers and cars ply in the route. If buses and lorries ply in this road it becomes a 2-lane automatically.

+100

Govt. should consider Thrissur & Kollam Corporation same as Kochi , Trivandrum & Kozhikode. But due some other interest it does not happen...

But due to more support from private investors , NRI investments & proximity of nedumbassery airport & kochi, Thrissur rocks well ...

Due this Govts , corporation , & politicians have shame to see these developments with out their support. Because of that , Govt.& corporation provides Some projects and development activities in city which is happening in Thrissur city now a days.....

Otherwise current situation in Kollam will also be in Thrissur city

The dotted locations in the google map like Mangad, Kadavoor, Kavand should have development plans even now itself. It would be difficult for land acquisition and implementation after the Bypass gets realized. By that time these precious land will be in the hand of Land Mafia and other vested intrest groups.

Infact, the government should acquire land in these towns whcih they plan to make as suburban satellite cities. What is the point in lamenting about these locations development after 10 years when there will not be any aland available. Infact, land availability is very less in Thrikkadavoor Panchayth but the land price is very high.

Dil, I also read this in the Mathrubhoomi Malayalam daily Bangalore edition.

Yes..he was addressing the District Congress Comittee (DCC) meeting presided by the DCC president Prathama Varma Thanpan. MP Peethambara Kuruppu was also present in the meeting at Kollam and he was appreicated by the CM in doing lot of home works so that Kollam gained the most in the previous Railway Budget.

CM said the Cashew Board HQ will be in Kollam itself and there is no doubt about that.

Ke mentioned about Kollam Ports development and completion of the ongoing works giving high priority. Peethambara Kuruppu reiterated the importance of Kollam Port's development for the overall development of the city.

CM also mentioned about Kollam Bypass and other city road development addreessing the various queries from the congress workers from the district.

Overall, the DCC meeting discussed a lot of development aspects on Kollam...but how these projects are dealt with and how long it will take to complete this projects have to be seen.

Yes...a majestic Medical college can be started at this location with a NH frontage that has Waterway connectivity on one side with the KSRTC Bus station, Railway station within half a KM distance.

But who will bell the cat here. This land is a prime land in the city owned by a centre government company. Would it be another laybrinth to procure this land from them just like the Underpass issue with Railways that is still prolonging?

I think some protest will come up from the trade unions as well.

Elected reperesentatives from the district and the city should have a detailed discussion in this regard and come up with a solution what is suitable in the Paravathy Mills compound. Otherwise, 20 acres should be found at the Kollam Bypass location. But here land aquisition will be required.

Though, a medical college is a need at the city centre, from a future perspective it would be ideal to have it at the Kollam Bypass for the interest of the people coming to the hospital from the corners of the district as accessibilty will be better in future with a comfortable traffic zone. The city centre will be choked with traffic and a medical college at the core city will add more traffic. Infact the current district hospital must be made a General Hospital and a comprehensive new medical college should come up at the Kollam Byapss location.
parvathy mill has 18 acres of land but as it is at the core city center, i think a medical college is not advisable there, as u rightly said by pass sector from ayathil to mevaram is ideal location for any big projects particularly a medical college, good road facility & land availability are major advantages over there,moreover the location is ideal for the entire dist people to reach, dont think chavara premo pipe compound have sufficient land as 9 ares already taken for iiic.
State govt holds plenty of land at kundara alind.
But high level political pressure is needed to implement the project, see the partiality of the govt when adoor prakash was the health minister one mc allotted to konni, when vs s become the minister tvm is getting another one, though it already had a huge mc, inability of politicians from klm, every ministry we were having not less than 2 ministers, but of no use.

Yes...these ministers are pocketing the medical colleges to thier regional pockets. Atleast Shibu has waken up now to pocket some institutes in the Chavara constituensy.

Nanda, you have ponted one import thing here. In Kollam district, government has more land at Kundara industril belt and most of these land are idle as Alind Kundara, Ceramics, Starch, and KEL all bed ridden or in dead state.

Why cannot they use these lands for promising projects? Infact, we lost the BSF Unit in Kollam due to non-availability of land when these mentioned lands are idle now.

I would like to see the entire Ceramics premise be taken over by the Kollam IT park for expansion in future.

When the mining of Chavara region will be over, even that land can be used for other industrial purposes.

Why cannot we have a cultural/recreational hub at Ashramam?

In most cities, there will be cultural/recreational as well as event hubs where the artists, connoisseurs, and event managers come, arrange and perform programs on a regular basis.

In Kollam we have good locations for cultural programs and event arrangement. Kollam Beach, Thankasseri Beach side Gallery, Cantontment Maidan, Kadapakkada Sport Club-Swaralaya Auditorium complex, Sopanam-Public Library complex, etc are good venues.

But we lack a cultural hub. I think Ashramam Residency premises and the Ashramam maidan can be made a cultural hub zone with necessary infrastructure. We should have some good open air theatres inside the Residency Maidan in the same lines of Nishagandhi in TVM. Infact there is enough space at Residency Maidan and Ashramam maidan (a corner is enough for this). Even a state government sponsored theatre complex near Ashramam is a great asset for the city so that it can host film festivals also. Even the proposed Astro Turf Hockey stadium complex should have an annex for cultural activities. The upcoming stadium can be used for cultural activities also without tampering the turf and sporting activities.

Being a city of festivals, pooram, and exhibitions there should be separate spaces at Ashramam Maidan and Cantonement maidan for events as well as parking. Road infrastructure and parking facilities near Ashramam has to be improved considerably despite the fact we have the 4-lane road.

Infact, Kollam is a city without any state medical college or a state General Hospital.
