Haj ‘Qurrah’ on April 17, 2014
The State Haj Committee has proposed to hold ‘Qurrah’ (draw of lots) for selection of Haj pilgrims on April 17. This year there will be a decrease of 20 per cent in the Haj quota for pilgrims proceeding through Haj Committee and private tour operators.Haj Committee special officer, Prof. S.A. Shukoor, who attended the Haj Committee of India meeting at Mumbai, said the reduction in the quota was on account of the ongoing expansion of the ‘Mataaf’ area in the grand mosque at Makkah.During 2013 the quota of Haj Committee after reduction was 1,21,420 and for private tour operators, it was 14,600.According to a press release, Prof. Shukoor wanted the quota for pilgrims to be fixed on the basis of 2011 census and not 2001.Source: http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/andhra-pradesh/haj-qurrah-on-april-17/article5827339.ece

Plea to review hike in guideline value of lands in Melvisharam
The Melvisharam Town Uplift Committee has appealed to the Tamil Nadu government to reconsider the steep hike in the guideline value of lands in Melvisharam town.
Muthu Rafeeque Ahmed, Secretary of the committee, said in a release that the public of Melvisharam have been affected by the steep hike in the guideline value of land in Melvisharam, effected by the government through an order. While the government order stated that the guideline value of lands has been increased by 40% to 60% with effect from April 1, in effect, the guideline value of land at Melvisharam town has been increased by 400% to 700%, which is contradictory to the claim made in the government order.
Citing examples of the hike, the secretary pointed out that the guideline value of land in Abdul Hakeem Road (Kathivadi Road), which was Rs.150 per square foot till March 31, has been increased to Rs.1,200 per square foot with effect from April 1, and this amounted to a 700% hike.
“We are unable to understand why such an abnormal burden has been imposed on the public of Melvisharam town alone”, said Mr. Ahmed, and appealed to the State government to reconsider the steep hike in the guideline value of lands in the town.Published: April 25, 2012 00:00 IST , Updated: April 25, 2012 04:30 IST VELLORE, April 25, 2012Source: THE HINDU

Melvisharam - Chennai Bus Diverted
Today, there was a problem in 7.40 am Visharam – Chennai bus and the bus conductor told me that here after the bus instead of coming to Visharam through by-pass from Arcot Bus Depot will go first to the Arcot Bus Stand and load passengers and will come to Visharam, all the way through the main road and will bound to Chennai from Visharam by-pass. It means that no Visharam passengers will be getting bus seats as it will be loaded in Arcot Bus Stand itself.
It is not clear about the 4.10 am and 6.20 am Visharam – Chennai buses. Will this buses also come loaded with passengers from Arcot and head to Chennai through Visharam? Everybody knows that it was a big effort to get the bus services from Visharam and so far, the Government has done little service to our town and now its officers are diverting that small government services from us.
People of Visharam, please, do something to stop diversion of this buses from its regular routes. If it is done, definitely we will be losing our grounds of what so far offered through the government.
