Hyderabad: IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao advised people not to sell land in Hyderabad and suggested that instead, they should purchase more, if possible, since the TRS government would be taking up many more development programmes.
Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao would be laying the foundation for the Regional Ring Road to facilitate better connectivity with Hyderabad. The RRR would come up beyond Outer Ring Road and the both will be connected with spiral roads, he said.
The government, under its plans to decentralise growth in the city, was focusing on a Look East policy and was working on improving infrastructure in Uppal, Nagole and other areas of the East Zone, he said.
“Shilparamam is being built, and a new company, which will provide employment to nearly 5,000 people, is coming up in Uppal. The details will be disclosed shortly,” Rao said, recalling the Chief Minister’s announcement that Rs 15,000 crore would be sanctioned to improve infrastructure and take up different development works in the city every year.
A ring main was being constructed for developing an inter-connecting waterline grid around 158 km of the ORR to ensure sufficient water supply to the city. This would help in drawing sufficient water from the Godavari and supply the same to the city if water levels plummet in the Krishna. It could also be used for drawing water from the Krishna when there is scarcity in the Godavari, he said.
With Metro, transportation had eased a bit and there was a need to extend it to different areas. Plans were being laid to construct Metro lines connecting Chandanagar-Lakdikapul, Nagole-LB Nagar- Falaknuma-Shamshabad and Gachibowli-Shamshabad routes, he said, adding that an elevated BRTS was also being proposed. Skywalks were also planned in different areas, and these projects would be taken up at the earliest.
Extend RERA deadline: TBF
The Telangana Builders Federation appealed to the government to extend the last date for mandatory registration with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) by a couple of months, citing elections and other reasons. The last date for registration of builders, projects and promoters with RERA is November 30.
With elections fast approaching, officials were busy, and builders needed to collect and upload many documents. This exercise was consuming a lot of time. In addition to this, many builders needed to have more awareness about RERA as they were unorganised, said TBF general secretary J Venkat Reddy.
