Vyttila Mobility Hub’s 50 cents of land to be handed over to private company
Kochi: The decision to hand over the Vyttila Mobility Hub’s land on lease to a private company has come under a lot of criticism. There are protests against handing over of land by ignoring the tender procedures.
The attempt to hand over 50 cents of land to a private company is at a time when the second stage work of the hub is going on along with the water metro project. It is reported that the government unofficially gave the nod to this.
The final approval of the governing council is required for the handing over of the land. The governing committee is headed by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The private company is eying the land close to the metro station. The final approval will be given by the governing council based on the security inspection report of the land.
Tender procedures have been ignored in order to hand over the land to the private company. The company is planning to set up a CNG filling station here.
It is also reported that handing over the land can impede the developmental works in the hub. There have been protests from within the hub society, along with various political parties.
Sub Collector Snehilkumar Singh is in charge of the hub society after R Girija, Managing Director of Vyttila Mobility Hub, stepped down on Friday.
