The land owned by GCC adds an Amma canteen, two parks, an open playground with a portion of a road. Besides the land cost, CMRL will have to bear the cost of reconstructing these facilities at a different location along with taking permission from the government wherever over five percent of open land is being transferred.

In November 2019, the decision was taken in the corporation council meeting as follows. As per the documents, six parcels of the corporation’s land will be given. In region 6, GCC has decided to take over 657 sq mtr land permanently for construction of Ayanavaram station. This includes the corporation’s ward building and a portion of a road. The cost of the land parcel is Rs 1.18 crore.

In region 13, CMRL will receive 1,203 sq mtr land, that is a third of Dr Muthulakshmi Reddy park which the civic body initiated in 2010. GCC will give the area to CMRL on conditions that the park is brought back to its original condition after work is done.

For this, 42 sq mtr accommodates an Amma canteen which Chennai Metro rail will have to relocate to another area.

This land adjoins a part of the Murasoli Maran park that the transport agency will have to repair after construction work is completed. GCC has also informed that CMRL constructs a building for them. These parcels will cost Rs 21.56 lakh and Rs 6.5 crore.

In region 9, for construction work of Tirumailai Metro station, a shopping complex-cum-toilet over 108 sq mtr run by GCC will be awarded to Metro rail for Rs 1.55 crore. CMRL will have to replace and reconstruct the complex.
