more-inIt has been nearly three years since nearly 460 families have been waiting to move into their reconstructed houses at the Tamil Nadu Slum Clearance Board (TNSCB) tenements in Tondiarpet. In 2015, the families were evicted from their dilapidated houses at the TNSCB tenements in Seeniamman Koil Street, Tondiarpet. They were promised that the newly built houses will be handed over to them within a year. “Every time we contact the TNSCB officials, they promise that the houses will be handed over in six months,” he added. When contacted, senior TNSCB officials said that the work was expected to be completed soon.
