Major projects of HMDA like Master Plan, LRS, Development Permission Management System (DPMS), work on Outer Ring Road (ORR), registration of Uppal Bhagath plots, and other development activities have been delayed due to shortage of staff.

A senior HMDA official said that due to shortage of employees in some areas they were facing problems and the works were getting delayed.

Due to the staff crunch many works and projects have been delayed, says another official. ``For the past 8 months, I am handling four posts in HMDA. Earlier there was enough staff, but now the work pressure has been increased manifold”, the official added.
