By Express News ServiceTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Staff shortage might thwart the city corporation’s plans to increase the number of squads checking illegal constructions across its 100 wards.
We hope to form a night squad and also increase the number of squads,” says Palayam Rajan, Town Planning Standing Committee chairperson.
Whenever any illegal construction is reported, a team visits the site, inspects and serves notice to halt construction.
The squad visits the site again to check if any further unsanctioned activities had taken place in the interim.
On an average, the current squad visits up to five sites a day depending on the number of reports.
