Old thread was merged with old TNAA due to continued political discussion! Now new thread.. Strictly no politics, city vs city or state vs state or usual political rhetoric statement.

Hope the thread serves only for Chennai miscellaneous discussion! :cheers:

Chennai issue

The Doklam standoff may have ended but the India-China border tension became the topic of discussion and debate at Officers Training Academy (OTA).
The stand-off was discussed in theory classrooms and at strategy planning area by trainers and students.

Guys I have this doubt about Chennai, Why is the population of Chennai always shown as 4.6 M in websites?. What am I missing something?. What exactly is the population of Chennai?.
In 2011 census, the city boundary was Kathipara on GST/Porur road, Velacherry/SRP tool & Thiruvanmiyur in south, Saligramam in west, Mogappair in north west & Thiruvotiyur in north. i.e. 4.6M is core city corporation population.

After 2011, core city population was expanded covering till Chemmencheri in south, Airport on GST, Porur till South west, Mogappair in north west. After Chennai core city expansion population is 7.1M and CMDA pop is 8.2M as per 2011 number.

Now CMDA limits is expanded covering all of Kanchi & Thiruvallur dt, according to 2011 population CMDA will have 13M. .. 2021 population of Chennai corporation will be more than 8M and CMDA will be greater than 14M.

‘Rs 800 cr allotted for skill development’

Chennai: A new vocational training centre by Rotary Club of Madras East (RCME) was inaugurated by State Minister for Tamil Official Language, Tamil Culture and Archaeology, K Pandiarajan at Thoraipakkam on Friday.

A sum of Rs 35 lakh has been spent on the Infrastructure set up from RCME Trust. The total investment in this project will be around Rs 1 cr which will help the underprivileged youth.

Speaking at the event, the Minister said, “Education and training are the two corner stone’s to make a successful career.”

He said that the State government will support the club in any of its activities which reach out to the poorer sections of the society.

Speaking to News Today, Pandiarajan said, “This year, the Tamilnadu Skill Development Corporation Limited is spending nearly Rs 800 crore into various schemes in 20 sectors and is one of the first in the country to do this.”

Kohler India, Grundfos India, Indian Terrain, Freshworks and Mahindra Pride are partnering for running the vocational training centre. Anyone who has completed class 8 can join the cente to undergo training in tailoring and plumbing.

Grundfos India is sponsoring a Pump and Plumbing programme in association with RCME. It is a 90-day certified programme, where the students will be taught about various pump and plumbing related topics including pump installations and repair, maintenance and service of plumbing systems. The curriculum will be in line with the NSDC (National Skill Development Council).

The modules of this course include both theoretical and practical sessions at the training centre and at Grundfos India’s production facility. The centre plans to focus on training women in this field. Each class will have 20 students and the centre plans to train 100-150 students each year, with supplementary courses on soft skill development.

Mahindra Pride will be providing Value Education to ensure that the candidates not only are skilful but will also possess communication and work ethics.

RCME president B S Purshotham said, “This centre is founded on the principles of placing scarce resources within reach of the needy. After analyzing the demand data we found that there was a great need for trained personnel in the areas – Plumbing, Tailoring, and Software Development”

Even after expanding the city limits to 8878 sq kms?. It would be just the fourth most populated metro area?. How come?. I thought with 8878 sq kms , It would engulf Kanchipuram, Thiruvallur and even parts of Arakonnam completely.

Are you talking about area or population?? Please google more about other cities! Secondly, Kolkata is much bigger than any cities in south by population. Kolkata metropolitan limits is just 1900 sqkm, but pop in 2011 itself 14m, but 2021, for same size population will be more than 15m. So by any chance Chennai's newly expanded area with 8900 sqkm it cannot be more than 14.5m population, so it will stay as 4th metropolitan by population.

Actually census doesn't consider entire CMDA area for UA population. It uses its own criteria for urbanisation. So irrespective of whether CMA is 1100 or 8800 sq. Kms, census UA population will be different and not 13-14 million.

By census numbers in 2021, Most likely Chennai will be fifth largest UA behind Bangalore because of the population growth rate of these two cities in recent decades. The 2011 UA difference was just 2 lakhs.

That is a good point. But this there are chances for continuing to be 4th largest UA.. reason, the urban population of Thiruvallur+Kanchi+Chennai put together is 1 crores as per 2011 census. The urban clusters of this 8800 sqkm will be mostly concentrated towards present CMDA limits. So population of UA will be above 1.2 crores considering UA expansion & growth for 2021.

I thought we are not getting into city vs city discussion but anyway some can't stop it. Metro's world over are considered 50 miles from the center of the city i.e 80 kms as their sphere of influence on economic activity.

Arakkonam is 68Kms. I think 8800 sq. km will still be below 80KM sphere of influence....

3 chennai district population is 1.3 crores without including Arakkonam in 2011.
