Issues in the zone:

  • Improper road laying leading to excess flooding in settlements and houses. In Vetri Nagar in Kolathur, manholes were covered up in the road laying process. 
  • Many incomplete development projects. For example work on Stephenson Bridge across Otteri Nullah is still ongoing. Residents are wading through drainage water stagnating on the road daily. 
  • Water logging during the rainy season especially in Pulianthope, Otteri and Kolathur.
  • Residents in informal settlements in Otteri have been served with eviction notices, but they have nowhere to go. Many from the area are scared that they might get sent away to far off places. A similar situation in Decoster Road. In Gandhi Nagar, there is a lack of sanitation facilities with 400 families living in huts sharing only one community toilet. 
  • Lack of basic facilities in Corporation schools
