In the next few years, as many as 46 villages in and around Hyderabad will get a facelift and would transform into mini townships.
The Hyderabad Metro Development Authority is on the job of conducting surveys on the facilities to be provided in these mini townships.
The HMDA has appointed a consultancy to conduct a survey to find out various ways and resources to form mini townships with facilities like medical, education, setting up of companies, transportation etc.
The Hyderabad city is growing at a fast pace as compared to the last decade and the administration is gearing up to cater to various needs of the population in and around the city.
People from rural areas are migrating to city as it offers better education, medical and employment opportunities. However, the government is unable to provide better amenities to the growing population. In view of these circumstances, the HMDA has decided to develop townships in the villages surrounding the state capital.
More than 35 mandals from Nalgonda, RangaReddy, Mahaboobnagar and Medak districts near Hyderabad city will be included in the Master plan of HMDA.
The HMDA has decided to develop following 46 villages in all these 35 mandals under four districts. In Nalgonda district Nelapatla, Chinnakondur, Panthangi, Malkapur, Thangadapally, Bommalaramaram, Maryala, Chinnaravulapally, Bhudhan Pochampally will be formed into mini townships.
In other districts Mogalgidda, Cheguru, Thadlapally, Kandhuvada, Aloor, Dhobipeta, Samakhanpet, Chinthalcheruvu, Dhowlathabad, Narspur, Gummadidhala, Shivampeta, Dhonthi, Moturu, Vargal, Mulugu, Thurkapally, Markoor, Kothyal, Chikatimamidi, Dhandumailaram, Mankal, Gunagal, Yacharam, Meerkhanpeta, Kandhukuru, Rachaluru, Yeliminedu, Manneguda, Polkampally, Khanapur, Subhanpur, Thummaloor, Dhayyalathanda, Vemuru, Dharmavaram, Palapally villages have been selected for the project.
The above identified villages will be provided with 12 kinds of facilities including business centres, residency, cultural activities, agriculture besides medical, employment, education, transport etc.
The HMDA is conducting survey on a war-footing and also assessing the possibility for immediate implementation.
The HMDA officials hope that after the implementation of the master plan, there would be a fall in the number of migrants to the city from the rural areas and would reduce burden on the Greater Hyderabad.
