Posted on: 27/May/2024 9:20:15 AM

Chennai Corporation Expansion
Chennai Corporation is set to expand its area from 1,189 square kilometers to 5,904 square kilometers, more than quadrupling its current size. This expansion, driven by population-based ward delineations, will bring additional central government funds and increased financial assistance from the World Bank. Tax revenue is also expected to rise.

In 2011, the incorporation of 9 municipalities, 8 borough councils, and 25 panchayats added 424 square kilometers to Chennai, classifying it as a metropolitan area. Now, 50 panchayats from 8 assembly constituencies, including 1,225 villages from Kanchipuram, Thiruvallur, Chengalpattu, and Ranipet, will merge into Chennai Corporation, resulting in the creation of 250 new wards. Areas like Moovarasampettai, Ayyappan Thangal, Kolappakkam, and others in the Alandur constituency will be included.

Expansion of Tambaram Corporation
Similarly, the Tambaram Corporation will expand by merging panchayats from the Maduravayal constituency, such as Vanagaram, Ayappakkam, Poonamallee, and others. Additional areas, including Navalur, Thazhambur, Siruseri, and Kovalam in the Thiruporur block, and Vichoor and Vellivoyalchavadi in the Ponneri block, will also join. Fifteen panchayats, including Trisulam and Pozhichalur, will be integrated into Tambaram Corporation. An official notification for these changes is expected soon.
