Survey of houses for giving free TV sets over

The Collector R. Palaniyandi said the administration had completed enumeration of houses in all six `samathuvapurams' in the district for free distribution of colour television sets on September 15.

Accordingly, TV sets would be distributed to 505 out of the total 600 houses situated in the `samathuvapurams' at Perurani (Tuticorin block), Anavardhanaloor (Karungulam), Paramankurichi (Udangudi), Pidaneri (Sattankulam), Lingapetti (Kovilpatti) and Nagalapuram (Pudur).

Of this, 66 TV sets would be given to Perurani, 81 to Paramakurichi, 72 to Pidaneri, 96 Anavardhanaloor, 93 to Linganpatti and 97 to Nagalapuram.

The Collector announced this at the grievance day meeting here on Monday.

On the grievances of few residents from the `samathuvapuram' at Perurani that their families were left out during the enumeration exercise, he said "the matter would be looked into."

Later, Dr. Palaniyandi distributed walking aid to five persons, with each unit costing Rs.300.

He then gave away educational assistance to eight physically challenged persons, by reimbursing the fees they paid for the technical education availed at the Small Industries Service Institute run by the Union Ministry of Small Scale Industries in Tuticorin.
