HYDERABAD: A circular will be issued to all Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation field officers to be present in office from 3-5 pm to receive public representations and hear people's grievances on civic issues, mayor Mohd Majid Hussain has said.
The mayor who made a surprise inspection of a citizen service centre on Wednesday and found it to be dirty, directed officials to maintain proper cleanliness at the centre.
He also expressed anger at the tardy pace of completion of On-Site Real Time report on sanitation work which was not even 48 percent complete in the Central Zone.
He also visited the Town Planning wing and enquired about pending court cases, stay orders and directed officials to clear pending cases on a war footing.
He instructed officials to be more vigilant of unauthorised constructions rather than demolishing them after their completion.
Meanwhile, Nadeem, a resident of Shaikpet complained to Hussain that he had been coming for more than a year to get his voter ID card and had to pay parking fees for each visit.
The mayor expressed shock on seeing the parking slip and said the fee should not be collected in government offices.
