No Take Off yet for the “Take a Break-Amenity Centre” on C U Campus

The “Take a Break’ wayside modern tourism amenity centre  launched with much fanfare on the national highway passing through Calicut University campus two months ago has stopped its functioning now. 

The centre set up by the  the District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) on the land provided to it  by the Calicut University and constructed at a cost of nearly Rs.45 lakh  has not yet been provided with water and electricity connections.

It is also learnt that there are many lacunae in the MoU signed by the Department with the Calicut University deadlocking the operations of the centre. As a result, the university is not providing water and electricity connections to the centre. The centre has to depend on KSEB for elecricity connection. Earlier, the centre has not got the approval from the Thenhipalam panchayat for its building for want of documentation of relevant papers.

The DTPC project was aimed at providing basic amenities such as toilets, food court, and restrooms at select points on the wayside of major roads in the State and the one established on the University campus should have served as a utility centre for the travelling public.

The DTPC is to lease out its components  to agencies or individuals for running the centre.

The clearance for the allocation of land to DTPC to start the amenity centre was given during the tenure of former Vice-Chancellor Dr.M.Abdul Salam.

The University has  also decided to allocate  one acre land to Thenhipalam panchayat to construct a bus stand beside the NH and campus Higher secondary school on similar lines.  There was criticism from various quarters over allotment of University land for commercial purpose as the Varsity will have to give up its land eventually, even as the University Act and Statutes say that the land of the varsity should not be used for any purpose other than academic.
