Tvm: The Kerala Government has informed Tecom, the Dubai-based promoters of the SmartCity Kochi project that it is declining their demand for 12% freehold rights for part of the land acquired for the project. The Government had made its position clear in a letter to Tecom authorities and have also said that it cannot wait indefinitely for the project to begin.
Chief Minister Shri V S Achuthanandan, while briefing the media after the Cabinet meeting yesterday said, “They are indefinitely delaying the project, making fresh demands outside the framework of the original agreement. Their demand for freehold on part of the land, which will give them sales rights, is not acceptable to the government”. The company’s financial position appeared to be shaky and that could be the reason for making new demands, he also added.
