Hyderabad: Chief Secretary Dr SK Joshi on Monday wanted basic facilities to be made available in the 109 locations where the State government was constructing one lakh 2BHK houses in the city on a war-footing. He was speaking at a review meeting with various departmental officials at his chambers on providing basic facilities at 2BHK colonies under Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) limits. He asked the officials to submit detailed plans on providing basic facilities such as police stations, ATMs, banks, recreation centres, health centres, fire stations, community halls, playgrounds, internet connectivity, markets and educational institutions in these newly developing areas.
Joshi asked irrigation department officials to submit a report on providing piped drinking water under Mission Bhagiratha scheme to all one lakh houses. “Officials must visit under construction areas before submitting plans to the government on providing basic facilities as requirements may differ from one place to another. Hence officials should focus on major requirements of each area,” the CS said, adding that the construction of 2BHK houses should be completed as per schedule and directed the officials to conduct field visits at regular intervals to ensure that works progress on schedule.
He asked the officials to prepare plans as per the guidelines of town planning department and said these 109 locations fall within Hyderabad and Cyberabad limits and hence, the district collectors of both areas should take extra care while providing basic facilities. GHMC commissioner B Janardhan Reddy, Rangareddy Collector Raghunandan Rao, Hyderabad Collector Yogitha Rana, Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani kumar, DGP (fire services) Gopi Krishna and other department officials participated in the meeting.
