Old and Dilapidated Structures Razed Across GHMC Areas
Old and Dilapidated Structures Razed Across GHMC Areas

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has decided to increase its surveillance of old structures and take up the demolition of dilapidated structures that pose a danger with heavy rains hitting the city. KT Rama Rao, Minister of Municipal Administration and Urban Development, directed the municipal corporation to audit old buildings and relocate residents from dilapidated structures. The municipal corporation, therefore, concentrated on the older buildings that are in a dilapidated state. Teams from the Disaster Response Force (DRF) demolished an old building in Aliabad, Charminar, on 12th Oct night. The DRF teams are removing the old buildings to prevent any untoward events based on complaints by local town planning wing officials. Demolition of Dilapidated Structures The town planning wing identifies dilapidated buildings every monsoon season and demolishes them. In this regard, to vacate the premises and facilitate the demolition of the structures, GHMC issues prior notices to the owners. This year, approximately 120 old buildings have been cleared to date, and the owners have repaired about 90 structures that have been partially damaged. In addition to the 316 structures that were marked for demolition and carried forward from the previous year, the municipal corporation marked 377 structures during the current year. As a precautionary measure, notices were sent to the owners of unsafe buildings and attempts were made to vacate them. The focus was imposed on compound walls, and officials of the civic body were instructed to demolish old and poor structures if the owners refused to clear those walls. More old buildings were to be demolished, but work was delayed due to severe rains. The municipal corporation has razed approximately 1,400 old and dilapidated buildings throughout the city over the last four years. In addition, guidelines for concentrating on cellar excavations in the city have been given to assistant city planners. The municipal corporation has imposed a ban on cellar excavations in Hyderabad.

Telangana Assembly Announced GHMC Act Amendment Bill 2020
Telangana Assembly Announced GHMC Act Amendment Bill 2020

The state government initiated GHMC Amendment Bill, 2020 to ensure the development of Hyderabad as a world-class city. Proposed GHMC Amendment Bill 2020 On 13th Oct, in the State Legislative Assembly, Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao made the announcement introducing the GHMC (Amendment) Bill, 2020. In addition to creating it as a mark of Telangana's self-respect, the state government will come up with a new Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) Act to promote the growth of Hyderabad into an international destination for all. The State Assembly passed the Bill, making the GHMC Council a 50 percent quota for women compulsory. Although the state government had previously issued orders in this regard and provided 50 percent reservation during the previous elections for women in the GHMC Council, the new Bill gives it authenticity. The Bill adds four further changes to the GHMC Act, including allocation of 10 percent to the Green Budget from the GHMC budget. To ensure flexibility and transparency, the Bill also provides for provisions to address reservations for two terms within the local body. In the Panchayat Raj Act and the Municipal Act, a comparable provision was made. The Bill allows the State Election Commission, in another major amendment, to make its decision on the conduct of GHMC elections only in consultation with the state government. The main objective behind bringing this amendment is to consider all issues such as natural disasters (heavy rains and floods), staff availability, law and order, and other issues before carrying out GHMC elections. Additional amendments have been proposed to facilitate the involvement of people in municipal governance in the GHMC area by creating four Citizens Committees for each division, including youth, senior citizens, women and eminent citizens. All these committees together will form a powerful force of 15,000 people who can be active in growing green coverage, solid waste management, the prevention of public property encroachment, the rejection of plastic use, the promotion of sports and other events in the respective divisions.

Dharani Portal Denied to Accept Enlisting of Non- Agricultural Properties in TSIIC
Dharani Portal Denied to Accept Enlisting of Properties in TSIIC

The State Government uploading information of non-agricultural properties to the Dharani portal is progressing at a slow pace due to some technical problems. Technical Glitches in Dharani Portal Most of the non-agricultural properties located under TSIIC (Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation) are found in Gachibowli, Manikonda and Patancheruvu areas. Property owners made several attempts to enlist the non-agricultural properties in Dharani Portal, but the system refused to accept alphanumeric property tax identification number, allotted to this area. Although several properties located near the industrial area of Jeedimetla fall under TSIIC, GHMC generates property tax. Authorities are requested to fix the issue immediately and deploy staffers to assist property owners as many residents are facing problems about the enrolment of property.  Dharani Survey The state government survey to collect property details is also impacted by uncooperative respondents. The residents in the city are refusing to give out their details for the survey as they are worried that the survey will make them ineligible for welfare schemes, including food security cards and pensions since they have a property under their names. Officials from the Municipal Administration Department stated that 50 percent of the survey was completed. Despite the online portal supporting only 15 to 30 entries per day, surveyors in the districts are asked to cover at least 50 to 70 houses per day. Officials have written down property descriptions on sheets of paper on many occasions. Once the server is functional, they enter the information into the Dharani portal. The government would look into the issues on the dharani portal to facilitate and address all ownership rights. By: Shailaja K

Himayat Sagar Reservoir Water Released Soon by HMWS&SB

The Himayat Sagar is only one foot short of being full to the brim with heavy rains lashing the city and its neighbouring areas, and there is the possibility of water being released downstream at any moment. On 12th Oct the water level in the Himayat Sagar reservoir was 1,762 feet compared to the Full Reservoir Level of 1,763 feet after receiving 1,666 inflows. The inflows into the Himayat Sagar are continuously tracked by officials of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB). With heavy rains expected over the next three days, officials said the decision would be taken to release water based on additional inflows into the reservoir. Revenue, police and municipal officials have already been put on alert following steady inflows into the reservoir. The water levels in the reservoir enhanced after nearly a decade, and district collectors, police commissioners, GHMC and other departments were also put on alert. Steady Inflows of Reservoir The residents of Shankernagar, Chaderghat, Moosanagar and its nearby locations were informed to stay cautious. Similarly, in Osman Sagar, the water level was 1,773 feet versus the FRL of 1,790 feet. The reservoir received inflows of 1,388 cusecs till Monday afternoon. There are, similarly, steady inflows into the reservoir of Singur. The Singur reservoir receives steady inflows almost eight years later, bringing a lot of cheer among Hyderabadis and Sanga Reddy residents. At 24.12 tmcft, the water level was recorded in the Singur reservoir against the FRL of 29 tmcft. As HMWSSB officials report that there will be no drinking water problems for the next summer and beyond, the reservoirs are getting steady inflows, and this sets up well for Hyderabad. HMWSSB supplies approximately 440 Million Gallons a day (MGD) to the city. The Krishna River provides these supplies with 270 MGD and the Godavari River with 172 MGD. Nagarjuna Sagar's full reservoir level (FRL) is 590 feet, while 588.88 feet is the current level. Srisailam's FRL is 885 feet, and 884.5 ft is the existing floor. Similarly, the water levels are 484.9 feet compared to the FRL of 485.5 feet in the Yellampally project. The officials of Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) made arrangements for the supply of water to the city as the project obtained good inflows due to the recent rains.

TS Government to Respond on HC Notice about Dharani Portal Details
TS Government to Respond on HC Notice about Dharani Portal Details

The Telangana High Court issued notices to Government and the Chief Land Revenue Commissioner (CCLA) asking them to clarify their stance on a petition against the new Dharani land portal and how the government seeks to upload information on the website about non-agricultural properties. However, while refusing to approve the petitioners any interim relief, Justice Shameem Akther, urged the government to file its counter within a week. HC Notice on Dharani Land Portal Details The petition was filed, questioning the government's decision for asking property owners to upload their information on their own. It said the revenue and local officials possess information about the properties as they collect all kinds of taxes. The officials know who the owners are and how to discuss their records. But they urged individuals to upload information to the Dharani website which could lead to several inconsistencies and unnecessary litigation. The petitioners said there was no law supporting this exercise and requested an interim stay for the entire exercise. They also sought the court's declaration that the ongoing activity was illegal. At this point, general advocate BS Prasad said that the government has set objectives and that it aims to streamline things to make life easy for citizens and save them from being duped by unauthorised elements. At this point, the AG objected to any interim relief and claimed that it would file a counter explaining the intent and objective behind the decision of the state and seeking time to do so.
