Urgent Call for Infrastructure Overhaul in TNUHDB Tenements

A recent report by the Information and Resource Centre for the Deprived Urban Communities (IRCDUC) highlights severe infrastructure issues in Tamil Nadu Urban Habitat Development Board (TNUHDB) resettlement sites, including Perumbakkam, Kannagi Nagar, Ezhil Nagar, and Semmencherry. Residents report crumbling buildings, poorly lit streets, and unsafe conditions exacerbated by rain, particularly on upper floors.

The report also notes overcrowding in Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) centers and inadequate road conditions that enable unlawful activities. Vanessa Peter of IRCDUC urges the reconstitution of a high-level committee to ensure inter-departmental coordination and address these pressing issues effectively.
