Chennai Metrowater has started disconnecting water supply and sewer lines of the 25 buildings on Ranganathan Street and Usman Road in T.Nagar, which were sealed on Monday.
According to officials of Metrowater, measures are being taken based on the report provided by Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority and Chennai Corporation – the two agencies that sealed the buildings. The process to disconnect the water and sewer lines of the buildings began on Monday late night.
Metrowater had recently disconnected the lines in four other buildings in areas, including Royapettah and Mylapore.
On Tuesday, the number of shoppers to the retail hub in T.Nagar was considerably less. The designated parking lots in the nearby areas wore a deserted look.
“Many of the people who come here for purchase as part of wedding ceremony requirements failed to turn up. Such people from nearby towns such as Tindivanam and Villupuram and the surrounding villages did not come today. These people used to come by train,” said S.Raja, an employee of a shop that was locked and sealed on Monday.
Many products already purchased by customers and stored in the sealed shops are yet to be delivered to the people concerned, according to shop owners.
Employees waited at the entrance of their locked shops on Ranganathan Street and Usman Road till noon and shared their grievances with representatives of the merchants’ association who visited the area.
