This work was carried out usind funds allocated to Mylapore MLA, R. Nataraj.

Private workers excavated the earth close to the compound wall of the Indian Bank Staff Quarters , for a depth of 15feet and lowered cement rings to create a chamber and topped it with other works, to let rainwater percolate when it rains.
