Redevelopment of Development Bodies Facing Heat

9 June 2013
Thiruvananthapuram

The State government’s move to reconstitute the Kollam, Thrissur and Kozhikode development authorities has come in for criticism. Reconstitution of the authorities that were dissolved during the tenure of the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government would only prove to be a drain on the exchequer and would in no way galvanise the urban infrastructure development works that were currently being managed by the civic bodies.

The previous government chose to retain the Thiruvananthapuram Development Authority (TRIDA) and the Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA) and dissolved all the other 10 authorities. The two authorities were spared from dissolution considering the projects for constructing roads and commercial complexes taken up by them.

The Kollam Development Authority had run a housing scheme for low income groups by availing itself of a loan from Housing and Urban Development Corporation Limited (HUDCO). The monthly loan instalments remitted by the beneficiaries were reportedly used for meeting the establishment expenses.
