Hyderabad: Kollur, a tiny village in the outskirts of Hyderabad, is slowly carving out as a satellite hamlet for fast developing Cyberabad. Located about 13 kms from Financial District, Kollur is easily accessible from Gachibowli, Kokapet and Narsingi and it is the second village along the Outer Ring Road (ORR), after Kokapet.
Interestingly, the village is under the restricted zone under government order banning organised residential and commercial development in order to protect the Osman Sagar and Himayat Sagar lakes. Thus the village has turned as home for several high end villa projects costing between Rs 2 to 3.5 crore.
A drive from Kokapet, the new buzzing location for corporate and commercial activity, would lead to villages � Vattinagulapalli, Khanapur, Janwada, Mirjaguda etc. on the Mumbai highway. On northern side of ORR there is Tallapur village. Apart from Kollur, the villages like Velimala, Edulunagulapalli, Padi, all facing the ORR, command similar opportunity and lands are available for medium to long term investments.
Apart from Financial District and Kokapet, these under-dog villages have easy and quick access to Gachibowli signal, Nanakramguda, Narsingi etc, some of the fast developing locations on ORR.
Here, the land is generally flat and offers vegetation, thus extends clean and pollution free environment. On the connectivity side, besides the ORR, the village is also connected with railway line. About two kilometers from Kollur, there is Edulunagulapalli Railway Station on Hyderabad-Mumbai line. And with MMTS being extended up to Shankarpalli village, Edulunagulapalli station will have access to MMTS.
While driving from airport, we can get on to service road at Puppalguda intersection and drive to Kollur past Kokapet. The intersection at Kollur (called Edulunagaluapalli intersection), gives access to the ORR itself, instead of using service road.
Besides, the village has excellent education facilities set up by industry majors like NCC runs Samsthi International School and Open Minds established by Birlas. Having just 15 minutes access from Gachibowli Financial District, the parents, who are working here can reach their wards very quickly.
Further, being close to Gachibowli, the villages have attracted new-age development by providing comfortable residential location for high-end IT employees in the Cyberabad.
Several residential developers are working on various villa projects in Kollur and neighbouring villages like Edulunagulapalli, Velimala and Pati. With the presence of over 50,000 employees working in the Financial District area, and many more are expected to join, the location has high potential for property investment, as the prices are now at low.
