Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has set to acquire 100 acres of agricultural land in Sangareddy to build mega double bedroom complex for the urban poor. The 2BHK township will have about 20,000 double bedroom houses. The township will have all facilities like LED lights and solar panels, etc.

The GHMC decision to build double bedroom house on the outskirts of the city has, however, raised many an eyebrow. Critics recall that construction of house for the poor on the outskirts of the city is against the Chief Minister’s precept. The Chief Minister time and again criticised the previous governments for providing housing to the poor at faraway places.

According to GHMC official, the civic body has decided to acquire 80 acres of agricultural land in Osmanpur and 20 acres from Kollur in Sangareddy district at an estimated cost of Rs 30 crore. The compensation to landowners will be made on a par with the existing market price. The proposed 2BHK project will be one-and-half kilometres from the Nallagandla junction on outer ring road.

A senior GHMC official told The Hans India that the civic body has decided to acquire 100 acres land in Sangareddy and develop it into a mega township. He said about 20,000 2BHK units will be built in the Osmanpur and Kollur villages. He said the land acquisition would be completed by August 15 and tenders would be called by September.

It may be recalled that as many 40,000 houses, which were built during the Congress regime at outlying areas, are lying vacant. It is puzzling as to why the GHMC has chosen to repeat the same mistake, critics commented.

Meanwhile, the GHMC has acquired 52 acres of land in Hyderabad district, 150 acres in Rangareddy, 250 acres in Medak and 40 acres of land in Sangareddy.
