The Consumer Protection Council, Tamil Nadu, has urged the district administration to take steps to shift Gandhi Market to the newly built central market at Kallikudi at the earliest.

In a resolution adopted at its annual general body meeting held here recently, the council said a large number of buses, cars and two-wheelers crossed Gandhi Market daily. The congestion resulted in enormous waste of fuel and time. Poor hygiene and pollution had also affected the public.

Appreciating the District Collector’s plan to call for applications for allotment of shops at the new facility, the resolution said the market complex had been lying idle for more than a year.


The modern facility had cold storage, weigh bridge, drinking water facilities, canteen, toilets and adequate space for vans and lorries to off load their goods easily. The first floor could be reached by lift. The 1,000 shops would cater to the needs of the next decade also.

“A country like ours cannot afford to waste resources. We resolve to urge the District Collector to complete the process of allotment of shops at the earliest,” the resolution said.

The Council also appreciated Tiruchi Corporation for its initiatives to improve solid waste management. It welcomed the Commissioner’s initiatives such as establishing a ‘Wall of Happiness’ and opening of public gyms.

S. Pushpavanam, Secretary, presented the annual report. C. T. Selvakumar, President, and others spoke.
