When in Coimbatore?

We were longing for an international cricket stadium and we had taken more efforts, but we haven’t got it. Atleast happy that Salem from kongu region got it.

Similarly kovai got so many students from other parts of state and country who are ready to shed money, but all they need is convenient, but government is turnings it’s ears blind.

Happy that others got it, but we are most deserving city, yet no clue on when???

To build a good cricket Stadium minimum 15 to 20 acres of land needed. So if Government provides around 20 acres of land to TNCA in Coimbatore, for sure they can build a stadium at Coimbatore, since city has all infra. Already Coimbatore have lot of lands within city which is available in government university campus [or] now state government identified 20 acres land at Sulur and 20 acres land at Madukarai for MSME in that only one place will be chosen for MSME. Other land will be no use now. In Coimbatore to build stadium cricket association need land first, land purchasing cost is high in the city, so if government provides it freely or on lease like chennai stadium land, then we can expect the stadium in future.


Salem is cricket ground, its not a stadium. For sure Salem will get domestic matches, but international matches no chance for now. Since lot of factors need to consider, salem ground is interier, no proper infra in salem as per ICC norms, only one flight from Salem connects to Chennai still it has to depend on Coimbatore on Flight and not much branded hospitality sector- only Radision blu and on medical also not much. salem has to improve their infra to attract this ground and build it as stadium which will take some time. Coimbatore is different scenario, it as all facilities just they need land to build a stadium.

Note sure what i status of this multipurpose Stadium to be constructed at Coimbatore,

We have tried a lot, I remember Raveendran sir and team approached Bharathi at university few years ago and it was about to take off, but then stopped due to some reasons. Coimbatore desperately needs one to move to next level.

Approach once again through local Minister for sure will happen and include Coimbatore cricket association for sure we can get around 25 acres land to build stadium. Bharathiyar University is around 1000 acres in that around 140 acres already allotted to Anna University- Coimbatore. In remaining 860 acres of university land for sure we can get 25 acres of land allotted by government to TNCA [or] on lease to TNCA to build good stadium.

Even Chennai stadium is government land[20 acres] leased to TNCA and in Trivandrum, the kerala University [government] land is leased and cricket[multipurpose] stadium is built on it by private player and stadium has entertainment sectors like theatre, other sports training center..etc

And Agricultural University,Coimbatore also around 1000 acres in that also can try. Towards maruthamalai area its red soil it will be good for cricket pitch with hill view.

Coimbatore Central Prison campus is around 165 acres in mid of the city, in that earlier Semmozhi Poonga planned at Gandhipuram in 45.2 acres, so if we get 25 acres in it, then it will enough for stadium.

25 acres of land within the city will not be difficult for government since lot of land is available in Agricultural University & Bharathiyar University. Atleast can try to get land on lease to build the stadium. We need to find & get the land before 2021 election since current CM is from Kongu region for sure will get it.

5))World’s Largest Murugan Statue construction going on

6)New Cricket Stadium Inagurated Today
Lol! These aren't gvt project.. private/individual investment. So you count the Adiyogi statue in CBE is gvt project? I ignored all your whining post for last few months as if CBE isn't getting anything.

1. Coimbatore have more flyover under construction than Salem.

2. Salem old bus stand reconstruction was proposed under smart city scheme by Salem corporation, every corporation is doing the same.. Madurai, Tuticorin, Tirunelveli. Corporation and its smart city limited have its autonomy to decide what to be built with smart city funds. What stopped Coimbatore corporation to propose such two tier bus stand in Gandhipuram when Salem/Madurai and other cities are redeveloping it? Whereas

3. Coimbatore western bypass LA work speeded up in last one yr, to whine like you i have to complain this gvt didn't move anything on 60KM proposed ring road around Salem in last few years.

4. Coimbatore Sri Ramakrishna Arts and Science college cricket stadium is opened in 2018 will host TNPL matches and future IPL. And Salem got in 2020 similar stadium.. while CBE already got in 2018 you are saying Salem shouldn't get?

Not to list Gandhipuam 2 tier flyover, Ukkadam flyover, Avinash elevated road, Trichy road flyovers etc., TICEL, metro, airport expansion and more.

Of-course Salem is smaller than CBE for sure.. but CBE have more projects than Salem with that you are not happy and saying a tone Salem shouldn't get anything.. what kind of thoughts is that.

More discussion will be moved to Kongu chai bar thread.

Call to construct memorial pillar for blast victims



The State government must construct a memorial pillar for the 1998 serial bomb blasts victims, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pon. Radhakrishnan said here on Friday.

He inaugurated a rally organised by the BJP at Bharathi Park Road to mark the 22nd anniversary of the serial blasts that claimed the lives of 58 persons on February 14, 1998. Thousands of BJP members took part in the rally. The rally was also held in support of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Mr. Radhakrishnan told the mediapersons the memorial pillar should be erected at the bomb blast site in R.S. Puram.

BJP State general secretary Vanathi Srinivasan, BJP State Treasurer S.R. Seghkar and State president of Hindu Munnani Kadeswara Subramaniam participated in the rally.

Other organisations including the Hindu Munnani and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad conducted demonstrations on Friday. According to police, nearly 3,000 police personnel including nearly 300 Rapid Action Force personnel were deployed in the city on Friday. The security arrangements were supervised by Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Jayanth Murali, police said.

கோவையில் இருந்து தேர்வாகும் எம்.பியிடம் தொழிற்சங்கங்கள் எதிர்பார்க்கும் நடவடிக்கைகள் என்ன..?

https://simplicity.in/articledetail.php?aid=939





கோவை : ஜி.எஸ்.டி. குறைப்பு, சிறு, குறு தொழில்களுக்கு தனி அமைச்சகம் உள்ளிட்ட பல்வேறு நடவடிக்கைகளை கோவையில் இருந்து தேர்வு செய்யப்படும் நாடாளுமன்ற உறுப்பினரிடம் தொழிற்சங்கத்தினர் எதிர்பார்த்துள்ளனர்.

தமிழகத்தில் இரண்டாவது பெரிய நகரான கோவையில் திறமைமிக்க தொழில்வல்லுனர்கள் இருந்து வருகின்றனர். பெரிய தொழில்நிறுவனங்கள் முதல் சிறிய தொழில்நிறுவனங்கள் வரை செயல்படும் வடதமிழகத்தின் தொழில்கூடாரமாக கோவை மாவட்டம் திகழ்ந்து வருகிறது. சுமார், 30,000-க்கும் மேற்பட்ட சிறு, குறு தொழில் நிறுவனங்கள் இங்கு செயல்பட்டு வருகின்றன. இந்த தொழில்துறை வளர்ச்சியடைவதால், கொங்கு மாவட்டங்கள் மட்டுமில்லாது, மாநிலமே முன்னேற்றம் அடையும் என தொழில் வல்லுனர்கள் தெரிவிக்கின்றனர்.

இந்த நிலையில், தொழிற்சங்கங்கள் மேம்படும் வகையில், கோவையில் தேர்வு செய்யப்படும் நாடாளுமன்ற உறுப்பினரிடம் தொழிற்சங்கத்தினர் ஒருசில கோரிக்கைகளை எதிர்பார்த்துள்ளனர்.



டி.ஏ.சி.டி.யின் தலைவர் கூறுகையில், "கோவை மாவட்டத்தில் சுமார் 30,000-க்கும் மேற்பட்ட சிறு, குறு தொழில் நிறுவனங்கள் செயல்பட்டு வருகின்றன. எங்களது நீண்டகால கோரிக்கையாக, அனைத்து தொழில் நிறுவனங்களுக்கும் பொதுவான தனி இடம் என்பதுதான். மற்றொரு முக்கிய கோரிக்கையாக, ஜாப் ஆர்டர்களுக்கான ஜி.எஸ்.டி. வரியை 18 சதவீதத்தில் இருந்து 5 சதவீதமாக குறைக்க வேண்டும். ஜாப் ஆர்டர்களை பெரும் சிறு, குறு நிறுவனங்களுக்கு 18 சதவீதம் ஜி.எஸ்.டி. வரியை செலுத்துவது மாபெரும் சுமையாகும்." என்றார்.

கொசிமாவின் தலைவர் சுருளிவேல் கூறியதாவது :- முதலில் ஜி.எஸ்.டி செலுத்தும் முறையை எளிமைப்படுத்த வேண்டும். அது மிகவும் சவாலானதாக உள்ளது, ஜாப் ஆர்டர்களுக்கான ஜி.எஸ்.டி. வரியை 18 சதவீதத்தில் இருந்து 5 சதவீதமாக குறைத்தால் சிறப்பானதாகும். மத்திய பாதுகாப்புத் துறைக்கு சொந்தமான ராணுவ தளவாடங்கள் தயாரிப்பு நிறுவனம் கோவையில் அமைய இருக்கிறது. இதனால், நமது பணிகளை மாற்ற வேண்டிய அவசியம் இருக்காது. ஏனெனில், ஏற்கனவே கோவையில் இருந்து ராணுவ உபகரணங்கள் தயாரிக்கப்பட்டு வருகிறது. மிகப்பெரிய அளவிலான ராணுவ தளவாட உற்பத்தி நிறுவனம் நிறுவப்படும்போது, வேலை வாய்ப்ப்புகள் அதிகரிக்கும். இதன்மூலம் மாவட்டம் வளர்ச்சி பெரும், எனக் கூறினார்.



"சிறுகுறு மற்றும் நடுத்தர தொழில் நிறுவனங்களுக்கு என தனி அமைச்சகம் அமைத்து, தனி பட்ஜெட் தாக்கல் செய்யப்பட வேண்டும் என்பது முக்கிய கோரிக்கையாகும். மேலும், வங்கிகளின் வட்டி விகிதங்கள் ஒருபுறம் கவலையளிக்கிறது. இது சிறுகுறு தொழில் நிறுவனங்களுக்கு உகந்ததல்ல. வங்கிக் கடன்களுக்கான வட்டி விகிதம் 9 முதல் 12 சதவீதம் என்பது எங்களுக்கு மிகப்பெரிய பிரச்சனையாகும். பல்வேறு நாடுகளில் சிறுகுறு தொழில் நிறுவனங்களுக்கு வங்கிக் கடன்களுக்கான வட்டி விகிதம் 1 முதல் 2 சதவீதம் மட்டுமே. எனவே, வங்கிக் கடன்களுக்கான வட்டி விகிதத்தை 5 சதவீதத்திற்கும் கீழ் குறைக்க வேண்டும். இதன்மூலம், சிறுகுறு தொழில் நிறுவனங்கள் வளர்ச்சியடைய உதவிகரமாக இருக்கும்," என தொழிற்சங்க கூட்டமைப்பின் பிரதிநிதி வலியுறுத்தினார்.

கொடிசியாவின் தலைவர் ராமமூர்த்தி கூறியதாவது :- உண்மையில், இந்த பிராந்தியத்தில் உள்ள தொழில்நிறுவனங்களின் மேம்பாட்டிற்கு அரசு பல்வேறு நடவடிக்கைகளை எடுத்துள்ளது. அதற்கு உதாரணம்தான், மோப்பேரிபாளையத்தில் வரவிருக்கும் கொடிசியாவின் தொழில் பூங்கா. நமது தொகுதியில் இருந்து தேர்வு செய்யப்படும் பிரதிநிதி, அபிவிருத்தி நடவடிக்கைகளுக்கு நம்முடன் கைகோர்த்து செயல்பட வேண்டும். நமது பிரச்சனைகளை நாடாளுமன்றத்திற்கும், அமைச்சகத்திற்கும் எடுத்து செல்ல வேண்டும். தற்போது, முக்கிய பிரச்சனையாகக் கோவை விமான நிலைய விரிவாக்கத்தை, நமது எம்.பி. வெற்றிகரமாக முடித்து தர வேண்டும், என தெரிவித்தார்.



சைமாவின் பொது செயலாளர் கே. செல்வராஜ் கூறியதாவது :- ஜி.எஸ்.டி.யினால் டெக்ஸ்டைல்ஸ் துறையினர் அதிக பலனடைகின்றனர். அதே வேளையில், கூடுதல் அதரவு இருப்பின், வேளாண்துறைக்கு இணையாக மிகப்பெரிய தொழில்சாலைகளால் வேலைவாய்ப்புகளை உருவாக்க முடியும். குஜராத், மகாராஷ்டிரா மாநிலங்களைக் காட்டிலும், கோவையில் மட்டும் 7.5 மில்லியன் டெக்ஸ்டைல்ஸ் துறையின் ஸ்பின்டில் யூனிட் இயங்கி வருகிறது. மேலும், திருப்பூர் மற்றும் கோவையில் மட்டும் 2 லட்சம் விசைத்தறி தொழில்சாலைகளும், 50,000-க்கும் மேற்பட்ட கைத்தறி தொழில்சாலைகளும் செயல்பட்டு வருகின்றன. நாடு முழுவதும் தேவைப்படுகின்ற இயந்திர தேவைகளில் 80 சதவீதம் எல்.எம்.டபுள்யூ. நிறுவனமே நிவர்த்தி செய்கிறது. டெக்ஸ்டைல்ஸ் துறையில் சிறந்து விளங்கும் 3 முக்கிய நகரங்களில் கோவையும் ஒன்றாகும். அரசு எங்களுக்கு ஆதரவு அளிக்கும்பட்சத்தில், 2025-ம் ஆண்டிற்குள் 3 மடங்கு வளர்ச்சியடைய முடியும், என்றார்.



கோப்மாவின் தலைவர் கே. மணிராஜ் கூறுகையில், "ஜி.எஸ்.டி.யானது தொழிலாளர்களுக்கும், உரிமையாளர்களுக்கும் தனிப்பட்ட வேறுபாட்டை உருவாக்கியுள்ளது. ஜி.எஸ்.டி.யால் கிட்டத்தட்ட 30 சதவீதம் சிறுகுறு தொழில் நிறுவனங்கள் மூடப்பட்டு விட்டன. ஜாப் ஆர்டர்களுக்கான ஜி.எஸ்.டி. வரியை 18 சதவீதம் என்பது ஆங்கிலேயர்கள் கூட கொண்டு வரவில்லை. வரி சீரமைப்பின் பெயரில் இந்த அரசாங்கம் ஆயிரக்கணக்கான மைக்ரோ மற்றும் சிறிய தொழிற்துறைகளை அழித்திருக்கிறது. ஜி.எஸ்.டி.யை முழுவதும் திரும்பப் பெற வேண்டும் என்பதுதான் எங்களுக்குத் தேவை. ஆனால், தற்போது இயலாத காரியமாகும். எனவே, நமது தொகுதியில் இருந்து தேர்வு செய்யப்படும் எம்.பி., ஜாப் ஆர்டர்களுக்கான ஜி.எஸ்.டி. வரியை 18 சதவீதத்தில் இருந்து 5 சதவீதமாக குறைக்க நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும்," என்றார்.

You can very well refer your own post, many post you have dragged Salem which is not necessary. One or two post is fine, but there are many which gives a view of whining.

1. There are flaws in Salem flyover as well.. on Sarada College road, it is 2 and uni-direction for more than a KM. Also on Omalur main road also flyover is uni-direction... they have done this cut the cost. So every project have its own negative things to point out. So don't imagine that only CBE gets some raw deal!

2. Just like how they are going to build metro in Chennai where flyover alread exists.. either underground or further in side. Now don't argue with the media or early discussion like metro will run on road. (this isn't final)

3. Atleast for CBE LA is in advanced stage and something better happening than smaller city Salem or much bigger city Chennai

4. IBT - so you react to every rumor or flame biat news? IBT is happening and u/c now. So pointing some odd news.. what is the use. Even for Salem they have planned the bus port on magnesite mines land. Again CBE isn't alone with these issues

5. It is already pointed out why CBE corporation haven't planned revamping/reconstruction of its city bus stand, when other cities like Salem, Madurai are doing it. How Salem/Chennai or other city held responsible which CBE corporation isn't doing in smart city project. Further like said, even other city planning also have flaws. So don't assume as if other part of state is vanchifying CBE.

I will agree to all of your points bro definitely

But, The only thing which is disappointing me very much is Metro Plan

As no proper information was given by the agency and our “Chennai Metro Rail Department” about “Coimbatore Metro Plan”

Do you know any new Information about it???

If we oppose this south India’s largest bridge now citing metro reasons, I am sure we will not get one till all our life. Metro is still in talks and not in reality. It requires more $$$. Better to support the one which is close to reality.


There will be always an alternative to metro design and DMK already supported the metro and someone will bring metro to city like coimbatore, but not this kind of game changing infrastructure. It’s once in lifetime opportunity to Coimbatore. This kind of budget may be allocated if both central and state alliance matches next time and if it’s DMK+congress, it may happen in Chennai and not in coimbatore.

If we understand our politicians better after seeing them for decades, it’s wise to get as much as possible, if we ask for better design, that will be their easiest excuse to skip. 220 million US dollars for a bridge might be even a difficult task for a well developed country. It’s easy for them to build 16 bridges in all the town and get the votes easily. Just because of ministers from kongu it’s possible.

FYI, the DPR and FR for Chennai Metro Phase I was done by Delhi Metro because they were the only experienced body to handle in the metro projects back then. CMRL didn't jump straight away.. only after approval of DPR by state and center.. CMRL was formed.

Same will happen for Coimbatore... after approval of DPR by state/center, next step will be set up of Coimbatore Metro Rail Limited inline to Chennai MRL.

I have always wondered why Karunya nagar was included which very rural(including the entire areas after perur) and has no scope for metro atleast immediately when developed areas like vadavalli is left out.. Just found out that Bilichi along MTP road which is starting point of one of the corridors is having a branch of Karunya university as well. This instills a serious doubt that there has been some kind of lobbying(Christian missionaries) which has happened when deciding the corridors for CBE metro. Just curious if that is just pure coincidence or is that the technical person who worked on it or the senior official who reviewed it. Whatever, I am still happy if the metro really happens along these corridors.

isha yoga can play bigger role than karunya for lobbying. so it may be isha yoga is the reason to start from karunya nagar.

Exactly, dont understand why Karunya nagar (west) was included in first place and bilchi is a news and didnt know where it was until metro corridor discussion came up.
Karunya is bcoz of Isha and Bilchi will be new city boundary as Karur - MTP highway touch point is Bilchi in MTP road. Periyanaikan Palayam is needed link but Karunya is not needed for phase 1.

Perianaikkanpalayam and MTP road massively developed in last 5 years. A decade ago it was as a satellite town and now it is a main part of the city. They deserve it.

CBE-Karur definitely needs an expressway. The road from CBE to Palladam is like a city road facing bumper to bumper traffic every time. After Palladam it is very diffivult most of the time to overtake. Expansion is less possible or not possible in many areas till Palladam. After Palladam small towns like Avinashipalayam, Pongalur, Kangeyam, K Paramathi, Vellakovil needs a bypass to avoid expansion. Rather for this small stretch it would be wise to go for greenfield expreesway for this short stretch. Moreover the region is very dry and comparitively very less agri land will be taken for acquisition. Its becoming a common practice in TN for the opposition parties to join hands against any expressway. We already lost Chennai Salem expwy.
I guess, there will be another agitation by Opposition like how they did for Chennai-Salem Expressway. These agitations are easy to attract political Mileage.

1. Kovai Metro
2. Elevated Express way in Avinashi road for 10.1 kms
3. Western Bye-pass road ~40 KMs
4. Greenfields Express way with ~80 KMs within Coimbatore Circle
5. 24x7 drinking water supply to the entire city
6. Airport Expansion


^^ If these 6 projects are implemented as promised, Coimbatore will be in different league.

Major cities like Chennai & Bangalore are facing heavy water problem and if we lay this proper foundation at the very beginning stage when our population is < 2 Million, we can grow organically throughout the city and not like other major cities where it had polarity in growth.

None of the Major cities in India got this kind of well-maintained lakes, parks (upcoming), 300+ KMs of NMT for jogging & cycling tracks (upcoming), Pure drinking water.

We got perfect blend of Quality of Life, Quality Education, World-Class water, Climate, Strong spending power, Strong local companies with > 1 Billion USD revenue, A Tuck off between Manufacturing sector vs IT, Cosmopolitan, Harmony within Community, Malls, Local HQs, World-Class expo, International standard Hotels, Agriculture, Advancement in Medical, Medical tourism, World-Class Golf Courses & Racing Track, Strong history of exports, Higher GDP contribution, NGO's contribution, Scenic mountains and trekking sites within picnic scope, Traditional pilgrimage sites like Marudhamalai to commercial pilgrimage site Isha, etc.,. we got almost everything. Just these critical infrastructures invites the critical and mega investment into the city and it will help to place Coimbatore in the visible mode to the world outside.

Despite of having so many positives, we ourselves witnessed many projects left Coimbatore citing infra reasons. A Classic example - Ascendas, Singpaore bought land and announced to the whole world about Coimbatore and indefinitely post-ponded citing infra/airport reasons. Even RMZ and Rathinam IT park in Eachanari didnt materialized due to the same reasons a decade ago.
