TDF meets the PM

If you want something done, better knock on the boss' door.....and that is precisely what TDF has done, in association with a number of other organizations with similar interests in promoting the development of our Capital city. Along with representatives of the Trivandrum Chamber of Commerce, Trivandrum Agenda Task Force and GTech, TDF's President, Ram, met the Hon' Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh and submitted a memorandum outlining top priority initiatives where the PM could make a real difference.

The details of the joint memorandum are available on the TDF website but the top agenda items were:

1. Development of Highway (NH 47) from Kazhakkoottam to TN Border
2. Extension of STPI Tax Benefits
3. Development of Vizhinjam International Transhipment Container Terminal
4. Development of Kochuveli Railway Terminal
5. High Court Bench
6. User Fee at International Terminal in Trivandrum

The Prime Minister's response was very positive and he has promised to take positive steps at the earliest. TDF will be following this up through the offices of the MPs representing Trivandrum as well as with the State Government. Let's hope for the best!
