The land price at Alathur Estate in Chengalpattu District has been reduced to ₹3.5 crore per acre from ₹6 crore; and at Erode Industrial Estate it is ₹3.8 crore per acre, against ₹6.4 crore earlier.

Also, prices of industrial plots at Karaikudi, Pidaneri (Thoothukudi District) and Rajapalayam have been reduced in the range of 30-54 per cent as a significant portion of plots in these estates have been lying vacant for years citing high prices.
