TECOM team to arrive Kochi on Monday

The TECOM team lead by smart city CEO Farrid Abdul Rahman will reach Kochi on Monday . The visit is crucial due to the uncertainty surrounding the project. The arrival comes in the wake of fresh disagreements between government and Tecom authorities regarding the freehold rights. Tecom, of late, had demanded freehold rights on 12 percent of the project land, which works out to 39 acres. Kerala says the freehold facility clause will come into operation only after the finalisation of the SmartCity master plan.

It is not confirmed that whether the team will hold discussion with government officials or ministers. Earlier chief minister V S Achuthanandan had stated that economic slowdown affected the implementation of the project. Meanwhile it is estimated that the TECOM officials will take a final decision in this regard on Monday.
