New villages will replace existing shanties with new houses: Palani Digambaran


Hill Country, New Villages, Infrastructure and Community Development Minister Palani Digambaran has observed that the new villages in the hill country would replace the existing shanties in estates with new houses and improve the basic infrastructure facilities within them.

He was addressing the House moving the New Villages Development Authority for Plantation Region Bill. He stated that the construction of houses in seven-perch lands could be expedited when the new authority to develop villages in the plantation region was established. The new authority would be responsible for coordinating the development projects in plantation regions.

He added that the government, with this move, aims to include the plantation community into the social mainstream through socioeconomic, cultural and infrastructure development. The new authority would work hand in hand with other national, provincial, and district-level agencies in the plantation region.
