Shabby State of Sholinganallur Toll Plaza Signage

Sholinganallur Toll Plaza was inaugurated with much fan fare a few years ago to augment the highways department revenue towards maintenance of road in the city's IT Corridor. However as days went by it is only near these tolls the roads are wider. Even a few furlong before and after the road shrinks in its width besides the fact the condition of the road remains battered like crazy.

Adding to the chaos, the signboard regarding Zero Ticket in Sholinganallur Toll Plaza was found in a tattered condition. I am definitely sure that the collections would be in crores even per day but they have not bothered to fix this signage at all. Aren't there one supervisory folk in this toll plaza who watches these issues in the surroundings?

Steep reduction of Bus Services by Metropolitan Transport Corporation (Chennai)

Of late citing reduced earnings, the transport undertaking of Government of Tamil Nadu operating in Chennai (Metropolitan Transport Corporation) has been steadfast in taking active measures in curtailing a lot of services causing much discomfort to the passengers.

At times even a 30 KM stretch is serviced by a single bus (both up and down) something similar to remote villages. We have raised this issue with MTC for a few services and would like to summarize their responses for the benefit of everyone.

Bus ServiceRequest SentResponse ReceivedPP 51I used to see a bus called PP51 plying between Tambaram East/Padhuvancheri/Chitlapakkam and Broadway/Parrys till a few months ago.

How do I submit a grievance to Competition Council of India in PgPortal?

PgPortal or CpGrams is the public grievances portal of India where you can reach any ministry or government department. I received communication from a reader that they need assistance to file a report to Competition Council of India on an unfair trade practice by a telecom service provider.

Pesky Trouble from @KVVighnesh (

I have been supporting the technical building of the website of Astrologer Vighnesh since 2010 but I do not strongly encourage astrology and those pariharams-palaharams concept. However of late, the pesky trouble from Astrologer Vighnesh in forcing me to reviews in support of him in third grade websites like Sulekha seems to be increasing that I reported the messages to pertinent authorities.

I had also escalated the issue about this to Sulekha team. You can check out the full complaint over here.
I have also re-edited the Google Review for him considering the steep disturbances he is giving for the past few days (now deleted). The text of the review is below.
The astrologer provides two websites and for US and India. But that is confusing the users as to where the astrologer originally is. There should be a clear indication of which is the correct headquarters.  Also, I am getting irritated by frequent pesky messages from the service provid…

eChallan System with @cctpolice. Will it work?

Recent found a news in Mambalam Times that Hon'ble Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu is allocating a whopping big fund to upgrade the eChallan system to have swiping facility.

But our big concern is how safe are these swiping machines from card skimming?

JPO to JWO and now to HNY (Jio Rocks!)

After today's announcements by Shri. Mukesh Ambani, it is clear that Jio has extended its free offerings till March 31 2017. What initially started before 5 September 2016 was Jio Preview Offer. From the period of 9/5/2016 to 31/12/2016 (or 12/3/2016) it is Jio Welcome Offer. Now from this date to 3/31/2017 it is HNY (Happy New Year) Offer.

There is a catch. The per day bandwidth has been capped down to 1 GB. it was capped to 4 GB in JWO and unlimited in JPO. This is in accordance with FUP because of abuse by a few freeloaders. Getting a SIM also should be easy with eKYC and home delivery measures. No more queueing up early outside Reliance Digital stores and no black market buying for skyrocketing prices.

Truly Jio has revolutionized the way we use the phone in India. Remember it is a 4G only service and hence your phone has to support 4G. And for calls it is just not 4G but 4G VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) and hence if your phone is just 4G you may need an app called Jio 4G Voic…

*New currency and the Common man*

*Many people say that this move by Modi government is affecting the common man more than the one who has hoarded black money. They say, this should have been done without affecting the common man.*

*But the common man is part of the system that created black money.* *1. Common man is the one who goes and gets his groceries from a retail shop for cheaper price, knowing that the retail shop hardly pays any tax at all.* *2. Common man is the one who prepares fake rental agreements and shows it as proof for HRA.* *3. Common man is the one who pays bribe (through black money) to a government official, just to make out work easier.* *4. Common man is the one who accepted Rs. 500/1000 (Black money) from both political parties that are contesting elections.* *5. Common man is the one who purchases a product without bill, to save money (thereby creating black money)* *6. Common man is the one gives maamool (black money) to the police for keeping their illegal shops* *7. Common man is the one w…
