Kerala government moves ahead with Punargeham rehabilitation project, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
KOCHI: Even as the residents of Chellanam oppose the Punargeham rehabilitation project, the fisheries department has started identifying land for implementation of the project.

The department has invited applications from those willing to provide land for constructing the flat complex to rehabilitate those who have opted for the project. The plan is to acquire around 50 cents within Chellanam panchayat for the construction of the flat.

The land must not violate any coastal regulation zone (CRZ) norms and interested land owners must submit applications along with the requisite land documents before the fisheries deputy director before August 13. Interested people can contact 04842394476 for details.

The project has been conceived to provide safe housing for all fisher families residing in areas within 50 metres of the tidal area, vulnerable to sea erosion.

However, most of the residents are yet to support the project and many have opposed the project alleging that the terms and conditions for opting the project were similar to a ‘forced eviction’ of fishermen from their lands.

Meanwhile, a group of residents under the banner of Chellanan Janakiya Vedi staged a ‘sleep protest’ in front of the office of fisheries deputy director on Monday against the government ineffectiveness in resolving the sea erosion issue.

The protest was inaugurated by Jackson Pollayil, president of Kerala Swathantra Matsyathozhilali Federation.
