GENESIS AND DEVELOPMENT OF P.K.V. MAHA NAGAR

Porur Kundrathur Vijayam Mahanagar (now called P.K.V. Mahanagar) with two lay out (Phase I and II) comprising of residential plots (1219), land for parks/play ground (6), public purpose plots, community hall, shops and Schools, encompassing an area of 115 acres were developed in 2004 by the South Chennai Co-operative Housing Society Limited (hereinafter it will be referred to as the ‘Society’) through Lion Dr. R.P. Darrmalingam, Promoter of the lay-out.

Porur Kundrathur Vijayam Mahanagar (now called P.K.V. Mahanagar) with two lay out (Phase I and II) comprising of residential plots (1219), land for parks/play ground (6), public purpose plots, community hall, shops and Schools, encompassing an area of 115 acres were developed in 2004 by the South Chennai Co-operative Housing Society Limited (hereinafter it will be referred to as the ‘Society’) through Lion Dr. R.P. Darrmalingam, Promoter of the lay-out.

Approval for Phase I lay-out: Phase I lay-out was approved by the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority in 2004 (PPD LO No.14/2004 - Letter No.L1/158/2004, dated 16-2-2004) and by the Kundrathur Town Panchayat (Letter D.Dis.No.183/2003, dated 2-4-2004). Plots under this lay-out were sold by the Society in 2004. The plots reserved for public purposes were also sold by the Society though they are supposed to be reserved for one year.

Approval of Phase II lay out:

(a) Approval for Phase II lay-out was granted by the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority in 2004 (PPD LO No.105/2004 – Letter No.L1/24689/2004, dated 1-9-2004). But, the Society could not obtain approval of the Kundrathur Town Panchayat for this lay-out. Pending approval by the Kundrathur Town Panchayat, the Society has sold the plots of this lay-out, including the plots reserved for public purposes. Owners of the plots in Phase II will not find such an approval number in the lay-out sketch attached to the sale deed.

(b) How was the approval obtained for Phase II lay out: The Porur Kundrathur Vijayam Mahanagar Plot Owners’ Association, which was registered in December 2007, approached the Kundrathur Town Panchayat and saw a communication to the Society which required the Society to develop tar roads in the lay-out as a pre-condition to approval of the lay-out. The Association took up the issue with the Society to which the Society replied that the estimate for developing tar roads in Phase II worked out to more than Rs.3.5 crores and they expressed their helplessness to comply with such a directive of the Panchayat as they had no financial provision to lay tar roads in Phase II lay-out. On appeal and persistent follow up by the Association, the Kundrathur Town Panchayat granted approval (Letter D.Dis. No.183/2003, dated 7-12-2007) for the Phase II lay-out. The Association had to incur certain expense towards this and collected/continue to collect one time payment of Rs.250 per Member/plot (as and when plot owners become Members of the Association). The Association has issued attested copies of this approved lay-out to Members of our Association.

(c) Physical appearance of the plots in 2007 vs. in 2014

(i) Clearing of thorny bushes: In 2007, P.K.V. Mahanagar looked like a forest with grown up thorny bushes and activities such as illicit liquor, etc. were going on. With limited membership and development charges received from the Members, our Association cleared all the thorny bushes in 2007. Each Member/plot was to contribute one time payment of Rs.500 towards development charges to meet this initial expense. This payment is collected from plot owners as and when they become Members. The Association continue to clear thorny bushes from the roads and from the plots in Phase I and II. On an average, the Association is spending Rs.1 Lakh every year to keep the plots in presentable condition.

But, what pains the Office Bearers are:

(a) Out of 1219 plots, only 877 plot owners have become Members of the Association. Some of the Members who own more than one plot has paid Membership enrolment fee, annual subscription and development charges for only one plot whereas they enjoy service for all the plots they own.

(b) Even out of 877 Members, around 500 Members still have dues to the Association. But, they continue to enjoy the benefits of the developmental and common services rendered by the Association.

(c) 342 plot owners have not become Members of the Association without making payment for membership fees, annual subscription and development charges. Without any payment, what they are enjoying are

  • appreciation of plot value by more than 13 times of the cost price;
  • enjoy passage through the road blocks cleared by the Association by spending considerable time and money;
  • having their plots cleaned every year for which the Association spends at least around Rs.100 per plot every year;
  • enjoy the approval for Phase II lay out obtained from the Panchayat by the Association;
  • enjoy seeing their plots with the help of signage created by the Association in the Nagar.

AT LEAST BY SEEING THIS, WE HOPE THAT ALL NON-MEMBERS WILL BECOME MEMBERS BY MAKING PAYMENT FOR ALL THE REQUIRED CHARGES; and MEMBERS WILL CLEAR ALL THEIR DUES BEFORE END OF SEPTEMBER 2014.

(ii) Signage for our Nagar: We have upgraded the image of our Nagar by fixing high standard identification sign boards printed with P.K.V. Mahanagar Main Road and welcome message from the Association.

(iii) Signage for the plots: We have fixed two sketches for our lay-out to guide our Members to identify their plots. Besides this, we have also painted road numbers and plot numbers as directional signage in each road/Street. This is apart from the CAD drawing which we have given to the Members during the Annual General Body Meeting on 24-8-2014 with road numbers/street numbers and plot numbers.

(d) Location of P.K.V. Mahanagar:

(i) P.K.V. Mahanagar is located very closer to Chennai & Tambaram-Maduravoyal Bye-Pass Road and is situated between Murugan Temple and Thiruneermalai Temple. The P.K.V. Mahanagar is just 10 minutes drive from Kundrathur Bus-Terminus, 10 minutes drive from Tambaram; 10 minutes drive from Pallavaram and 5 minutes drive from the outer ring road. State Transport Bus Depot is coming up near the P.K.V. Mahanagar. Kundrathur-Thiruneermalai road is proposed to be widened as 100’ road. A few buses ply between Kundrathur and Tambaram via the main road from Murugan Temple via P.K.V. Mahanagar. The quality of road from Murugan Temple is of the quality equivalent to Highway Roads in Tamil Nadu.

(ii) Approach to P.K.V. Mahanagar: Members experienced problem in the approach road at the entrance after the culvert and the Association has solved this issue by arranging to purchase the particular road portion of the land. One more objection arose from another person just before Phase I plots from our using the road for laying electricity line laying purpose. In view of this, EB line was laid to our Nagar diverting the route. Of course, there has been no objection from this person for pedestrians and vehicles for movement into our Nagar.

(e) Bridge connecting the P.K.V. Mahanagar and Tambaram-Maduravoyal Bye-pass Road:

(i) What we saw in 2004: Mahilam Enclave, who had developed residential lay-out in between the P.K.V. Mahanagar and the Tambaram-Maduravoyal Bye-pass road, built a bridge across the river. But, there was no official approval for building this bridge. Most of the Members and non-Members were taken by the Society to our Nagar through this bridge. In 2009, the D.M.K. Government demolished the bridge, allegedly based on public complaint giving the colour of flood in their Nagar because of blocking of river water flow. The Association could not stop the demolition as the Government did perfect planning and execution of bridge demolition on a Saturday.

(ii) New bridge construction: We are making an effort to get a bridge across the river so that we will get connected to the service road of the Tambaram-Maduravoyal Bye-pass road. If this happens, hopefully yes, our Nagar will see more development and the market price of our land will go multi-fold.

(f) Developments in and around P.K.V. Mahanagar:

(i) House construction in P.K.V. Mahanagar: Two houses are in advanced stage of completion in P.K.V. Mahanagar, one each in Phase I and Phase II.

(ii) Amarprakash construction is coming up with house construction in a big way.

(iii) A shop and a few commercial factories have come up near the approach roads.

(iv) Mehta Nagar and Manikandan Nagar which are a few yards away from our Nagar have developed much faster and the plot value has gone much higher.

(v) An Arts & Science College is coming up adjoining our Nagar.

(vi) New lay-out are coming up near our Nagar.

(vii) Three phase electricity supply has come into P.K.V. Mahanagar, both in Phase I and II.

(g)Problems in Phase I & II:

(i) In Survey No.540 in Phase I, there appears to be some dispute over ownership of land and road portion. Association is taking steps to solve the issue.

(ii) In phase II, Plot Nos.111 to 116, 122 to 129, 573 to 576 and 593 to 596 (22 plots) are a part of approval of this lay-out. According to the information available to the Association, these plots and the roads connecting them were not owned by the Society. Out of these 22 plots, three plots (Plots 122, 129 and 593) were sold by the Society and the other plots were not sold. Because of this problem, the plots fully affected without approach road are 106 to 110, 117 to 122 and 129 to 131. Plots partially affected are 585 to 592.

Members of the plots 122, 129 and 593 are advised to obtain legal opinion in respect of their plots to satisfy themselves as to whether they have valid title, with particular reference to linking of parent document. Once they obtain legal opinion, they may take up the issue with the Society. If they expect the Association’s support, they can meet the Association with a copy of the registered document, legal opinion and encumbrance certificate by fixing up an appointment with the Secretary.

(iii) PP Plots - PP I to PP XXXV under Phase II: These plots are the part of the approved lay-out. But, the Society had sold these PP Plots without even developing sixth main road, 47th cross street and plots from PP III to PP XXVII. This area looked like a jungle with thorny bushes. Of these plots, owners of Plots PP III to PP XI have not become Members of the Association. The Association made several attempts to rope in the above-referred non-Members into the Association as Members of the Association so that the Association may make a concerted effort to take up the issues with the Society and solve the problem. But, the Association could not succeed in their attempt. The area covering Plot Nos. PP III to VII and XII to XVII are under private occupation by a local person who is doing agricultural cultivation in this area. Plots PP X to XXVII do not have approach road as the road has not been developed by the Society. Even some portion of the land from Plots PP XXII to PP XXVI is under the possession of the private person who is doing cultivation over here. The Association attempted to solve this issue. But, excepting from one Member, the Association did not receive co-operation from the others. The Association cleared thorny bushes from majority of the plots in this area on 6th August 2014, excepting the land area under possession by the private person who is doing cultivation and Plot IX. In the above circumstances, the Association is of the opinion that unless all the plot owners in these PP Plot area become the Members of our Association, the Association will not be able to take up this issue. During the Annual General Body Meeting held on 24th August 2014, the contact details of the above plots were shared with a few Members and they were requested to get all the affected parties together when the Association can get itself involved in rendering necessary assistance.

(iv) Plots adjoining the newly promoted Nagar adjoining P.K.V. Mahanagar: Private promoters of land have laid out Janaki Nagar and Ponnusamy Nagar adjoining Phase I and II. There appears to be some disturbance in the boundary stones of Plots 252, 257, 258 and 284 in Phase I. In Phase II, disturbance to boundary stones of plots 8, 9, 20, 21, 36, 37, 52 and 62 to 65 are to be checked. These plots come in the boundary of Phase I and II plots in the eastern side. While the Association will be making a survey of these plots in a week, owners of these plots are also requested to make a survey and satisfy themselves about “no-disturbance” to the boundary stones of these plots. If any disturbance is noticed, Members are requested to inform the Association through a letter or by mail to secretary@porur-kundrathur-mahanagar-association.org.

APPEAL TO ALL

  • The Office Bearers of the Association is taking up Association’s work as a social cause with the sole motto of developing P.K.V. Mahanagar as a Township. But, it is possible only if:
  • All the plot owners become Members of the Association.
  • All Members pay the dues to the Association.
  • More Members come forward to build houses in the Nagar.
  • All the Members show interest in the development of the Nagar.
  • More Members join as teams to solve each type of issues which are coming up now and then and also other developmental activities.
  • Each Member does not expect to be the 1219th person to build house in the Nagar.
  • Each Member do not keep the plots with the sole idea of realizing higher sale price.
  • Members offer constructive suggestions and not de-motivating communications and SMS messages.

A FINAL APPEAL TO NON-MEMBERS: Please look into your registered sale deed to revisit the price at which you bought the land; imagine the current market rate – all because of the Association’s efforts and plot owners who have become Members of the Association, made monetary contribution and their involvement with suggestions and cooperation; imagine the future market rate if the Association succeeds in getting the Nagar connected with Bye-pass road and/or Mehta Nagar/Manikandan Nagar. Touch your heart and soul which will say that you have been unreasonable so far by NOT having become a Member of the Association – but, having been enjoying the benefits out of the efforts of the Association and contributions of Members. I AM SURE, YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY BECOME A MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATION.

THOUGH IT MAY APPEAR HARSH, WE WILL NOT SERVE THE PLOTS OF MEMBERS WHO DO NOT BECOME MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATION BEFORE END OF 2014.

APPEAL TO MEMBERS WHO ARE IN ARREARS: Kindly clear all your dues and encourage and join with the Office Bearers of the Association in their efforts to develop P.K.V. Mahanagar as a model Township in Kundrathur.
