1 street, 2 names; residents at crossroads

The residents of Thennampalayam 5th Street Extension coming within Tirupur Corporation have a peculiar problem. They are not able to sell or transfer their property as the street they live in have different names in the official records of the revenue department and the corporation.
The issue came to light when a local resident, Varatharajan, bought a property at Thennampalayam 5th Street Extension six months ago. According to him, he bought the land at the guideline rate of around `1,000 per square feet and registered it at the sub registrar’s office. “When I was verifying the records, I realised that there were different names mentioned for the same street. The property tax receipt mentioned the place as Kamarajar Road Cross Street as per the town survey records. However, the revenue department record declares it as Thennampalayam 5th Street Extension,” he said.
The problem arose while fixing the guideline rate for the property at the sub registrar’s office. “The Kamarajar Road area near Tirupur old bus stand is a commercial area and the guideline value for that area is about `3,500 per square feet. However Thennampalayam is a residential area and the value is around `1,000 per square feet. Of the total 12 streets in Thennammpalayam Extension area, the guideline value of 11 streets is fixed at around `1,000 per square feet. The 5th Street Extension mentioned as Kamarajar Road in the guideline register is fixed at nearly `3,500,” he noted.
He said, “Decades ago, the road from Perumal Temple to Thennampalayam was mentioned as Kamarajar Road but after the development of the town the name was changed to Palladam Road. At present, Thennampalayam is 0.5 km away from Kamarajar Road. Though all the revenue department records show the new name, the Corporation records still mention the old name.”
Due to the confusion, his property document has been with the sub registrar for the past six months. Inquiry with residents showed that all of them had records with two different street names. He urged the administration to hold a study to fix a single name for all such records.
