HYDERABAD: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has decided to take up house numbering works for an estimated 4.56 lakh houses in the Greater Hyderabad limits soon.

The GHMC will engage private agencies by inviting tenders for survey and cad digitisation of GHMC circles 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16 and 18.

Earlier, the corporation has completed the task of fixing house number plates in circles 8 and 9 last year.

Out of the total 18 circles in the GHMC, new house numbering works in circles 1, 2, 3, 6, 14 and 17 have been entrusted to a private consultant and circles 4, 5, 8 and 9 works were being undertaken by the GHMC surveyors.

Speaking to Express, GHMC officials said that tenders would be invited for engaging private agencies to take up the numbering work in circles 7, 10 and 18 of the core areas (i.e erstwhile Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad) and circles 11, 12, 13, and 16 of peripheral area also.

All these circles have an estimated 4,56,551 houses.

The total estimated cost of the project would be around `1,07,28,949 crore.

GHMC is taking up the work on the directions of municipal administration minister M Maheedhar Reddy, who wanted the numbering work in the remaining circles also to be completed at the earliest.

The proposals have been sent to the standing committee and the general body for approval

Hear People’s Grievances from 3-5 pm: Mayor to Officers

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.
