The primary objective of RAAC (Residents Awareness Association of Coimbatore) is to create a good, pleasant and serene living atmosphere favorable for leading a healthy and peaceful life.

The current building regulations of Coimbatore are outdated and they were formed many years ago. These regulations do not meet the requirements and evolving needs of present day Coimbatore. Owing to the fast paced economic growth and unchecked development of building activities, apartments and commercial complexes are being built even in narrow lanes of small residential colonies of width 20ft to 30ft without adequate infrastructure. So this leads to road congestion, shortage of drinking water, depletion of ground water, drainage issues and parking problems.

Most of the roads in Coimbatore are already facing severe traffic congestion. Five years ago a place in Coimbatore, which we could reach within 15 minutes, is now taking more than 45 minutes because of the poor road conditions and the ever growing traffic in the city.

About Coimbatore

Coimbatore, is the second largest city in Tamilnadu (105.6 sq.km). About 15 lakh people are living here. We, the people who live in the city which lies on the banks of river Noyyal and the foot hills of Nilgiris Mountain get our water from the nearby river Siruvani, whose water is supposed to be the second best sweetest water in the world.

Our city is called as the 'Manchester of South India', since here we have large number of spinning mills like that of the city of Manchester in England. The city of Coimbatore is reckoned as famous for spinning mills and industries and is being conducive for industrial wealth. The reasons for this are the weather, hard-working nature of the people, water and beautiful natural environment. The employment opportunities attracted the nearby villages, towns and neighbouring states.
