Mookaiyur fishing harbourgets Centre’s nod
: Work on the reconstruction of the fishing harbour at Mookaiyur in Ramanathapuram district can be expected to pick up pace as the Centre has given its administrative approval for the ₹113.90-crore project.
An official release from the State government said that following the administrative approval from the Centre, the State would allocate 50 per cent of the cost as its share. Tenders are likely to be floated soon.
According to the policy note of the Tamil Nadu government, reconstruction of the fishing harbour would help in decongesting fishing activity in the Palk Straits near Rameswaram.
