    In Nondimedu area, the waste collection van is coming around 12 noon to 2 pm. So those going for work aren't able to clear off the waste. Also the new administration has taken the roadside waste boxes away. It would be better if the van comes in the morning before 9am Will the administration arrange that?

    Ooty is a hill station and best place for eucalyptus is here. Where else do you think that we can cultivate the same? If the population here is increasing day by day it is the wrong planning of the administration. Building guidelines for a hill station is not followed. It is a great mistake done to the future generation.
