Auto - Share Auto

Auto Rikshaw

Share Autos

If we look at the secondary transport in chennai the things that strike our mind are Auto Rikshaw and Share Auto.

First comming to Auto Rikshaw, Most of the people in chennai call it plainly AUTO. This vehicle runs on petrol and can carry upto 3 persons leagally, And legally the fare should be colected only based on the Meter fixed in the auto. But mostly no auto drivers follow these rules. Autos are used by many peoples in chennai, Autos also provide comfortable ride. In chennai central there is a counter for prepaid auto where people who r new 2 chennai or the people doesnt know 2 bargain auto fares can pay money for ur destination before u travel.

An another medium of transport became too popular in chennai in recent past, Ya its nothing but SHARE AUTO. Share auto mostly look like Auto Rikshaw, But its much big in size than auto, and mostly runs on disel. Its mostly used my middle class of chennai. Legally only 4 peoples are allowed to travell in a share auto, but mostly 6- 8 people were made to travell at a time in share autos, In Share Autos the fares are fixed and low compared to Autos. But we can never expect comfortnes in share autos. There are many complaints about share auto drievers as they mostly stop their vehicle with out using indicators which causes accident some times. Even i got accident cos of share auto when i was travelling with ma dad.

So dont worry if u dont get bus or train 2 ur situation in chennai, Autos And Share Autos are always there for ur service


LIC Building

LIC Building - Still satnding high in heart of chennai people

I still remember the day when i saw de LIC building for the first time while travelling through the mount road, Anna Salai, Then i used to look at it when ever i go in that way. Then i asked my dad about that building, Then he said its LIC Building, The tallest building in chennai. Then i came to know its one of the important landmark in chennai. Now lets see some interesting info about the LIC building which i have collected from net. But i it doesnt look like a building which is built on 1959. great work.

Its built on 55 ground of plot, this 177 feet tall building till date remains the popular symbol of modern architecture in Chennai. This 14 storied building has 1,26,000 sq.ft of floor area and stands on 521 pneumatic caisson piles that run to a depth of 35 feet. Built at the cost of 87 lakhs in 1959,
M Ct.M.Chidambaram Chettair conceived this building in 1952 as the head office of United India Life Assurance and New Guardian Life Insurance. H.J.Brown and L.C.Moulin, the London based architects, drew the designs. The construction commenced in 1953. The London architects withdrew in 1957 and the rest of the construction was overseen by Chennai based architect L.M.Chitale. The completed office building was to become the office of LIC and not that of the United India Life Insurance because the insurance service was nationalised by 1956 and all the assets were made over to LIC

This important landmark of Chennai that consumed 1000-ton steel and 3000-ton cement and was inaugurated on August 23 1959

They have totaly 36 water distribution plants, 100+ sewerage distribution plants, 13 filling points to supply water thtough lories, 13 sewerage treatment plants and maintain them to serve the people of chennai, Its Head Offile Is located in Chindartipet, It has around 10 Area offices and 155 Depot offices. They have also planned to implement many new plans to provide more efficient service to the people of chennai. They played very important role in implementing "Rain Water Harvesting" strictly in chennai which reduced water scarcity and increased ground water level in chennai. They also made easy ways to citizens to pay their water taxes, any consumer can pay tax at any deport office, he can also pay through internet. Now let me say de reason behind this blog post, My great DAD Mr.N.Ravi works in metrowater ans deport manager, tahnks dad for providing me whith all these info.

Chennai Cops

Chennai Traffic Police Stops Vehicle In Style

Police Patrol Bike

Police Patrol Car ( Hundai Acent )

Safety is very important for the people to live in a city, I see chennai is a safe place 2 live cos it has a very low crime rate comparing to other cities in india. This situation is possible due to the intense measure taken by the chennai city pollice. They are the people who work hard day an night to provide us safety, to reduce crime rates in our city.

Chennai Trafic Police depatment play a great role in maintaining the traffic flow and road safety in our city, We can see them working really hard under the sun, day and nigt, to contol the traffic and check the road safety. But i think the Chennai Traffic Police are not strict on the rules like " Wear helmet While Driving", " Dont Drink And Drive " etc, and the main problem with the trafic police is " They Get More Bribe " and they are not strict in their rules. I myself had seen many traffic constables and inspectors getting bribe and negotiating with the public for bribe. Other than that traffic police had installed CCTV cams in many signals, Installed improved and good signals etc.

I think the chennai police is the only polic in india to patrol with " Hundai Ancent " Car, The police head quartres for whole tamilnadu is in chennai ..

A great Salute for these great peoples who protect the chennai ..

Chennai Police Doesnt Have a seperate site, But info about chennai police can be found at
But Chennai Traffic Poice have their own site.
