KV Navya ByExpress News ServiceCHENNAI: The construction of three new shelter homes that can accommodate 150 homeless people has been completed and will be inaugurated within a month, confirmed officials of the city corporation.
Having procured three vehicles to carry out the rescue operations daily, civic body officials say more shelters will be helpful to rescue more people, since a few shelter homes in the city are already overcrowded.
A recent study by the civic body found that more than 10,000 people, including children, are homeless in the city.
The norm is to have 70 shelter homes for a population of 8.5 million in Chennai.
So, if the CSR fund flows in, we can upgrade the shelter homes with television, cots and CCTVs,” the official said.
