The state government has cancelled three orders issued by the municipal administration and urban development (MAUD) department relating to the merger of 36 gram panchayats with Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

The state government examined the matter keeping in view the observations of the High Court where they found that lapses have taken place in respect of the 36 gram panchayats and it has therefore been decided to take up further action as deemed fit in respect of the above gram panchayats in terms of the AP Gram Panchayats (Declaration of Villages) Rules 2007 duly cancelling the notifications issued on merger of gram panchayats.

The gram panchayats that were merged into the limits of GHMC -- Gandipet, Narsingi, Manchirevula, Kokapet, Vattinagulapalli, Bandlaguda Jagir, Neknampur, Kismatpur, Puppalguda, Himayathsagar, Khanapur, Peeramcheruvu, Hydershakot in Rajendranagar mandal; Jawaharnagar in Shamirpet mandal; Shamshabad, Satamrai and Kothwalguda in Shamshabad mandal; Pragathinagar, Bachupally, Kompally, Dulapally and Nizampet in Qutbullapur mandal; Boduppal, Medipally, Peerzadiguda, Parvathapur, Chengicherla in Ghatkesar mandal; Nagaram and Dammaiguda in Keesara mandal; Gundla Pochampally in Medchal mandal; Jillelaguda, Meerpet, Phadishareef, Jalpally and Kothapeta in Saroornagar mandal and Kalwancha H/o Kuntlur in Hayatnagar mandal,

It may be mentioned here that High Court in its orders dated September 26 last year have passed interim suspension orders on the above gram panchayats on the ground that rule 12 (2) of the AP Gram Panchayats (Declaration of Villages) Rules, 2007 have not been followed while merging gram panchayats with the GHMC by the PR&RD department.
