HYDERABAD: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) which temporarily stopped issuing building permissions since the last one-and-half months, started accepting building applications from the people and issuing building permissions from Saturday.
Pending building permissions would be cleared in the next 15 days by conducting a special drive.
Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, GHMC Special Officer Somesh Kumar said that as the state government was planning to develop Hyderabad as a global city, GHMC is preparing Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP) and in this context it stopped issuing building permissions and accepting building applications since more than month.
In the SRDP, GHMC proposes to construct and develop major corridors, roads, skyways, grade separators and flyovers in different parts of the city for hassle-free traffic movement. For implementing the SRDP plan on different stretches of the road, lands and structures may come in the way that require acquisition of land. Now that the SRDP has been finalised, GHMC will start issuing building permissions with immediate effect. Somesh Kumar said that as many as 98 people applied for building permissions at GHMC head office. After conducting detailed scrutiny, it was found 18 applications were falling under SRDP plan.
