Hyderabad: Individuals who had approached the Court over demolitions of illegal structures got a breather after the GHMC chief ordered the bringing down of only unauthorised buildings and dilapidated buildings.
But a majority of those who approached the court are major encroachers such as N-Convention, Ramky estates, Satvika hotel and big realtors who have illegally occupied tanks across the city.
According to the latest orders, the city planners have been advised to concentrate on demolitions of unauthorised constructions and dilapidated buildings wherein notices have already been issued.
Regarding encroachments on nallahs and tanks, notices have to be issued as per the orders of the High Court — giving opportunity to the occupiers to both explain and relocate.
Dr. B. Janardhan Reddy, Commissioner, GHMC said, “A committee will be constituted to study encroachments with the help of other departments including GHMC Deputy Commissioners. At present, Hyderabad has 390 kms of main nallahs and 1,000 kilometers of mini nallah channels.”
