Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has decided to shift its head office from Tarnaka to the Swarna Jayanti complex in Ameerpet by August.

The Tarnaka office is one of the most disorganised, with its various wings scattered all over the building.

 

This not only irks visitors but also makes coordination between the various departments a challenging affair.

At the Swarna Jayanti complex, the HMDA will have the fourth, fifth and seventh floors to itself.

These are being renovated a cost of RS 8 crore. It has floated tenders to select interior designers, and April 26 is the last date for bidding.

Its office space in Tarnaka, which measures nearly 90,000 sq ft, will be leased out.

The HMDA had been moved out of the Paigah Palace in Rasoolpura in 2007-08, to make way for the US Consulate General. It will be shifting again after a decade.

A senior HMDA official said that the shifting is being undertaken to provide better services and the Swarna Jayanti complex was the only suitable property available near the Secretariat.

“The planning body’s office should ideally be located in proximity to the Secretariat, which is why the office is being shifted to the Swarna Jayanti complex,” he said.

He explained that unlike their offices in Tarnaka, the new office will be organised to be a one-stop solution for citizens.

Asked if the floating of tenders would violate of the mode code of conduct, the official explained that doing up the office was part of regular maintenance. Sources claim that the Tarnaka building will be handed over to the HMRL at a cheaper price.
