V R Premkumar has been appointed as Additional District
Magistrate in-charge of Sabarimala and adjacent areas.
The decision in this regard was taken at the cabinet

in the land grab cases involving senior politicians in Munnar.
The state cabinet also decided to appoint Kozhikode
collector U V Jose as Land Revenue joint commissioner and
Thrissur sub-collector Renu Raj as Devikulam sub-collector.
Kollam sub-collector S Chitra has been appointed
director of Kerala State IT Mission.
The cabinet also sanctioned a special package of Rs
2.04 crore to repair the houses of 458 fishermen families,
which were partially destroyed in the Ockhi cyclone last year.
