Wednesday, 25 Nov, 11.53 pm

The land for residential sites, community hall and crematorium for SC/ST communities will be earmarked after discussions with revenue department officials if proposals have already been submitted by the local bodies to the assistant commissioner and the concerned tahsildars, said Deputy Commissioner Annies Kanmani Joy.

She was chairing a meeting of the District Vigilance and Monitoring Committee Against Atrocities on SC/ST Communities, at the DC's office on Wednesday.

Responding to a request by committee member Sukumar on the need for alternative land for 24 families belonging to SC/ST communities dwelling on a hill in Mekeri, the deputy commissioner directed the member to submit a proposal through the Gram Panchayat to the revenue department.
