    Property registrations in Hyderabad rose by 152% in May, says report

    The metropolis witnessed a 152 per cent year-on-year progress in property registration at 6,301 throughout May and 17.6 per cent month-on-month surge, indicating a powerful demand development regardless of exterior components akin to financial downtrend and inflation, main actual property consultancy Knight Frank India mentioned on Thursday.

    The whole worth of properties transacted in May 2022 stood at Rs 3,058 crore, a 146 per cent YoY and 9.9 per cent MoM rise, taking the cumulative worth of all properties registered since January 2022 to Rs 15,071 crore, it mentioned.

    The Hyderabad residential market contains 4 districts-Hyderabad, Medchal-Malkajgiri, Rangareddy and Sangareddy.

    “In recent years, Hyderabad has had one of the strongest demand trends, despite external factors such as economic downturn and inflation. While the rising building costs have had an impact on the more price sensitive categories, the upper segments have had little influence, keeping the market strong. End-users continue to be drawn to home purchases by factors such as job security, rising household incomes and savings, and conformable home-loan rates,” Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank India mentioned.

    Of all residential gross sales registered throughout May, residence in the worth band of Rs 25 lakh to Rs 50 lakh constituted 55 per cent whereas the demand in the lower than Rs 25 lakh ticket-size nevertheless, weakened with its share constituting 18 per cent, the report mentioned.

    The cumulative share of gross sales registrations for properties with ticket-size Rs 50 lakh and above elevated to 27 per cent in the month in comparison with 26 per cent throughout the identical month final yr.

      Blasting takes toll on residents of Hyderabad

      Residents of areas such as Kukatpally, Jubilee Hills, Madhavpuri Hills, Hitech City, Nallagandla, and Raidurg, among others, complain that noise from the rock blasting, movement of heavy machinery as well as construction work during night hours.

      HYDERABAD: As construction activity in the city, especially in the IT corridor, hits the fast lane again after a Covid-19 lull, a rise in rock blasting activities in the area is not only taking a toll on the area’s natural topography but is also impacting the health of residents, not to mention an increase in noise pollution.

      Residents of areas such as Kukatpally, Jubilee Hills, Madhavpuri Hills, Hitech City, Nallagandla, and Raidurg, among others, complain that noise from the rock blasting, movement of heavy machinery as well as construction work during night hours, has upset their sleep patterns, which in turn is leading to secondary issues.

      “It has been a little over a year that rock blasting and movement of heavy machinery happens throughout the day and even during the night. Although incidents of night-time blasting have come down in the last one and a half months, I am still suffering from insomnia, migraine, and high blood pressure,” said Harini Joshi, a resident of Kukatpally.

      Further with hectic real estate development kicking up dust in the area, many are facing respiratory issues. “My mother has had asthma for many years now, but with the blasting going on in our area, her condition has worsened,” said Babu Rao, a techie living in the Raidurg area.

      Experts, meanwhile, said that though rock blasting might not be completely avoidable, fl attening entire areas is also not necessary.

      Citing the example of the rocky terrain of San Francisco (SF), where people construct houses on hill slopes, Sangeeta Varma, joint secretary, Society to Save Rocks, said builders here should follow the suit.

        Union Minister for Housing & Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri has said that out of the 1.22 crore houses sanctioned in all parts of the country under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), around 20 lakh houses were sanctioned for Andhra Pradesh.

        Addressing the beneficiaries of the PMAY from Visakhapatnam district, during an interaction programme organised here on Sunday, Mr. Puri said that after he assumed charge of Housing and Urban Affairs, about five years ago, an assessment was done and it had revealed that around 1 crore houses were needed all over the country. “But I am glad to say, we have sanctioned around 1.22 crore houses till date, in which A.P. alone received around 20 lakh houses,” he said.

        “Wherever I go, I receive requests from the State governments seeking additional houses. In A.P. also, I have received such a request and I will definitely consider it,” he said responding positively to A.P. Housing Minister Jogi Ramesh’s request for sanction of additional houses.

        Mr. Puri, who is also the Union Minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas, said that about nine crore families benefited by the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwal Yojana (PMUY). During COVID-19 pandemic, many families were provided three additional cylinders, he said.

        The purpose of the visit to the city was also to celebrate Narendra Modi’s eight-year rule as the Prime Minister. “One whole day will not be enough to talk on the programmes and welfare schemes initiated by Narendra Modi,” he said.

        The Union Minister gave a cheque for ₹203.56 crore to 42,343 urban beneficiaries on the occasion.

        As part of the programme, Mr. Puri interacted with a number of beneficiaries. He sat with them in the gallery. The women beneficiaries explained how their lives had undergone a transformation through PMAY and PMUY schemes.

        Navaratnalu


        Mr. Jogi Ramesh said that the State government’s ‘Navaratnalu-Housing for Poor’ scheme was benefiting around 30 lakh families. The State government was also building 17,000 Jagananna Colonies with all basic amenities for residents.

        Special Chief Secretary Ajay Jain said that both the State and the Centre were working together to fulfil the dream of the poor to have a house of their own.

        District Collector A. Mallikarjuna, GVMC Commissioner G. Lakshmisha and BJP MLC P.V.N. Madhav were present.

            Telangana pollution board orders closure of six units

            U Sudhakar Reddy / TNN / Updated: Jun 15, 2022, 11:03 IST


            Representative image

            HYDERABAD: The Telangana State Pollution Control Board (TSPCB) issued closure orders to six units for environmental violations. Two pharma companies were asked to shut shop.

            Sources said that a fire mishap in one of the pharma companies led to its closure, while a sugar factory distillery unit was also asked to close down as it was damaging crops. The PCB has issued closure orders to Yadadri Life Sciences located in Ramojipet of Yadadri district. The pharma company is into manufacturing of bulk drugs and intermediaries.

            The PCB said that the company was operating without a valid Consent for Operation. “It was found that the company was manufacturing two products without nod. Also, we have observed spillage of effluents from the factory. The industry has failed to maintain operation and manufacturing records,” it alleged.

            The TSPCB also issued orders to stop production to Gayatri Sugars (Distilleries) in Kamareddy district. PCB said the industry hasn’t provided storm water drains and was storing spent wash (residual liquid waste) for over 30 days as against the norms.

            Further, the PCB issued orders for the closure of Monashi Life Sciences, a pharma firm in Patancheru. The plant was gutted in fire in April. The firm was storing effluents without sending them to a common treatment plant. It was also found that there was no proper fire hydrant system. Closure orders were also issued to stone crushing units and other firms.

              These STPs have been built across Greater Hyderabad and its periphery.

              On Wednesday, the HMWS&SB managing director, M Dana Kishore reviewed the progress of ongoing works of these 31 STPs at Khairatabad and asked agencies concerned to complete the works as per schedule. Vacant space at the newly-built STPs have to be utilized and converted into mini parks with greenery, said Dana Kishore.

                Labour crunch hits Hyderabad's 2BHK housing scheme

                Read more at:
                https://realty.economictimes.indiati...cheme/92326918



                Out of the 49 2BHK housing projects planned across Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) limits, only eight projects in Sainagar, Bandlaguda, Kulsumpura, Bogaram and Adarsh Nagar are in operation.

                HYDERABAD: While the construction sector is up and running across Hyderabad, the TRS government’s plans to construct one lakh 2BHK houses for the poor seem to have hit a pause button due to labour shortage and other issues.

                According to an RTI query filed by city-based civic activist Robin Zaccheus, out of the 49 2BHK housing projects planned across Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) limits, only eight projects in Sainagar, Bandlaguda, Kulsumpura, Bogaram and Adarsh Nagar are in operation.

                Status of works pertaining to 2,691 housing units is delayed due to non-availability of labour and Covid-19. Other reasons for the delays in the 2BHK projects include disputes between the GHMC and the construction company, which is seen in four projects. In four areas, the project came to a standstill due to a court case.

                In Bandamaisamma and Ambedkar Nagar, works could not take off as ‘beneficiaries refuse to vacate their houses’. Apart from site disputes with railways, religious structures left two projects in limbo, the RTI reply said.

                “The excuse of labour shortage due to the pandemic is not plausible as it cannot be applied since private construction companies are not facing such an issue across the city,” Zaccheus told TOI. Another RTI reply received by him said that till May 8, the government had utilised Rs 10,800 crore out of the sanctioned Rs 14,786 crore.

                Experts in the real estate sector said the labour shortage issue is not as severe as it was in 2020 and 2021. “Post-Covid, there are three major trickle effects that are still prevailing. The construction labour capacity has not recovered completely as many who returned home during Covid-19 have decided to settle down in their villages. Secondly, the cost of labour has increased substantially due to the shortage and finally, many projects are still facing severe delays,” Ashwin Rao, managing partner of Akshara Group, told TOI.

                  Water crisis hits Tellapur, Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority sits on land plea


                  Ujwal Bommakanti / TNN / Updated: Jun 20, 2022, 11:50 IST

                  Representative image

                  HYDERABAD: A proposal for a dedicated electrical substation and water tank by residents of Tellapur has been hanging fire for a while as the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) is yet to respond to pleas to allocate land.

                  With over one lakh residential units likely to come up in Tellapur in the next five years, residents fear that unless the two issues are resolved quickly, the area is set to face hard times.

                  While the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply & Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) is ready to construct a water tank and had written a letter to HMDA seeking allocation of land, there has been no response.

                  The HMWS&SB letter of September 22, 2021, reads, “To provide water supply to newly developed housing colonies and gated communities in Tellapur municipality, it is necessary to construct a new reservoir and its appurtenances at an elevated place.”

                  HMWS&SB also wrote to TSIIC for land in Ramachandrapuram. They received a reply with a demand for Rs 1.6 crore to provide land.

                  Similarly, the Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited (TSSPDCL) too wrote to HMDA way back in May 2018, requesting one acre to construct a new 33/11 KV substation to cater to Tellapur, Ramachandrapuram and Kollur areas.

                  “Owing to this distance, even a small disruption to the line would leave entire Tellapur without power. Even the TSSPDCL noted in the letter that the existing substation is nearing full load capacities. It’s been four years, but the HMDA has not bothered to even respond,” Tellapur Neighborhood Association (TeNA) president Ramana Eshwaragiri told TOI.

                    Hyderabad: Debris dumped in nalas, people fear flooding again

                    Ujwal Bommakanti / TNN / Updated: Jun 21, 2022, 07:41 IST


                    Debris and plastic waste enter Hussainsagar lake from the nala near Necklace Road on Monday

                    HYDERABAD: As fears of another flooding casts its shadow on Hyderabad, people staying close to nalas emptying into Hussainsagar are spending sleepless nights as the canals are being surreptitiously filled with debris and trash allegedly by builders. Residents fear that there could be severe waterlogging in case of heavy rains.

                    The nala near Lower Tank Bund has been bottlenecked with tonnes of debris, sand and trash. “We have noticed that the water levels rise easily because of the debris. Mostly, the dumping takes place at night and we have no clue who owns these trucks,” Ravi Kumar, a local resident living right behind the choked nala, told TOI.

                    While there are concrete buildings on one side of the canal, there were a few shanties along the banks of the channel making them more vulnerable to floods.
                    The situation isn’t just restricted to Lower Tank Bund alone, but also at Kukatpally, Balkapur and Banjara nalas.

                    According to an NGT-appointed joint committee report submitted in 2021, Kukatpally nala alone brings in 75% of all sewage flowing into Hussainsagar.

                    The choking of Picket Nala at Rasoolpura too stands as a major cause for urban flooding in Begumpet.

                    Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials note that remodelling of Picket Nala, works of which were underway, would provide respite to over 50 residential colonies like Sindhi Colony, Paigah Colony and Secunderabad Cantonment areas.

                    “The remodelling works of the narrow bridge at Picket Nala are underway. It has been a long-pending demand of the residents and, once this is done, there would be a significant impact on urban flooding,” a senior GHMC official said.

                    Regarding the action taken against dumping of trash and debris in nalas, the officials note that there was special emphasis on this nala under the current Pattana Pragathi programme in which 1.1 lakh tonnes of garbage and 36,131 tonnes of debris were removed from nalas.

                    “We had also desilted 273.03 km of nalas across the city under the drive,” the senior GHMC official added.

                      Expedite construction work on highways in Telangana: NVSS Prabhakar

                      Sreebaala Vadlapatla / TNN / Jun 23, 2022, 21:03 IST


                      HYDERABAD: Telangana BJP vice president NVSS Prabhakar has requested that Union minister of transport Nitin Gadkari conduct a high-level review of the state's highway construction progress as soon as possible.

                      The former Uppal MLA met with the minister at his residence in Delhi on Thursday and requested that work on the Uppal elevator corridor be expedited.

                      Prabhakar complained to the minister that the state government is harassing building owners by delaying payments of land acquisition costs, resulting in unfinished work.

                      According to Prabhakar, some building owners attempted to build units again, but officials harassed them.
