Kochi: As many as 35 treasuries in Kerala now have state-of-the-art facility on the lines of a new-generation bank with Inkel Limited, a public-private partnership (PPP) initiative, successfully completing the ‘Treasury Infrastructure Development Project’ (TIDP) of the Kerala Government.
The State Government launched the TIDP to ensure better facilities to the people, specifically to cater the needs of the disabled and senior pensioners.
In a release, T Balakrishnan, Managing Director of Inkel said, “While 30 existing treasuries have been upgraded with all facilities, we constructed five new ones. All the upgradation works were executed in working Treasuries with minimal disruption of essential services to public. The entire project cost was approximately Rs. 15 crores and the entire project was executed without any cost overrun.”
Inkel prepared a detailed project plan and design works for the modernisation of the treasury offices following a social survey. The facilities included accessible toilets for the disabled, lift, token facilities with parallel counters and ramps to reduce the rush.
“All these treasuries are presently operating in the renovated buildings where we have maintained very high standards of construction. The work has been accredited high quality after the inspection by the Chief Technical Examiner,” added the Inkel MD.
