    Telangana: People caught in relentless cycle of flood, evacuate, repeat

    TNN / Updated: Jul 29, 2022, 14:28 IST

    Motorists experience heavy rain in the city

    HYDERABAD: The over 1,500 residents evacuated from Musi catchment areas are once again looking at severe property loss after the latest floods.

    While most have returned home after the water receded on Thursday, quite a few families are still living in community halls and shelters as they have nowhere to go.

    Those living in tenements under the Muslim Jung Pul said that since 2020 it was the third time that all their belonging were either damaged or lost. Currently, there are around 100 residing at Arundhati Bhavan, a community hall near Chudi Bazaar.

    “We were alerted by police three days ago and my family came to the community hall with nothing but our bedsheets. Everything that we had has been washed away. The water still hasn’t receded and once again we must build things from scratch,” said Ramanjaneyulu (27), a construction supervisor hailing from Kurnool, who has to now find a roof for his wife and three children.
    While Yadamma (67), who also lost everything, said through the tears: “We have already suffered so much in the rains during the last two years. It feels like we are building things back only for it to collapse again.”

    The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials are providing basic amenities such as three meals a day and garments to the affected families in shelters and community halls across the city.

    The situation is pretty much the same in Ambedkar Bhavan, Ayyappa Society and even outside GHMC limits in areas such as Bachupally and Nizampet which have been affected by the heavy inflows into Musi.

    “We have reached out to the affected families and made arrangements in various community halls. Most have already returned to their homes after water levels came down. The remaining will return in another day or two,” a senior GHMC official told TOI.

      Telangana: Kondapur RTO wobbles on creaky infrastructure, services

      Donita Jose / TNN / Updated: Jul 30, 2022, 07:50 IST


      Poorly maintained driving test area at Kondapur RTO

      HYDERABAD: The dilapidated condition of the Kondapur Road Transport Authority (RTA) office has left citizens fuming. Thanks to broken benches, the lack of proper waiting areas or signages navigating the office have become like a labyrinth for citizens wanting to avail of services there.

      “The RTA should have some basic facilities but even a functional seating area is missing for those waiting in queues. When we go to register a car worth 30 lakh and give up to 4 lakh as tax, it’s really surprising that we are made to stand in the sun in a place which lacks basic maintenance,” rued Anish Kumar, an IT professional.

      A similar situation prevails near the driving test arena, where broken metal benches are all that exists and there is limited space for citizens.

      “I went to register my vehicle during the peak summer months. There was no fan or shade to stand under, so we took shelter near the staircase. What was worse was that there was no cleanliness maintained on the site, with no clean drinking water dispensers. It is shocking that an RTA office catering to so many IT professionals is so badly maintained,” said Vinay Vangala, a citizen from Miyapur.

      RTA officials, however, rue that they are not able to add the requisite infrastructure there at the moment as the land is in dispute and there are court directions asking the office to maintain the status quo in terms of infrastructure.

      “We are trying to make temporary arrangements like setting up toilets. However, not much can be done owing to the court order. We have now begun work on a new full-fledged RTA office in Manikonda, which will open in the next three months and will offer all services,” said a senior RTA official.

      Meanwhile, citizens demanded at least one basic helpline and a citizen information corner to help navigate the Kondapur office for the next few months. “There is no proper information desk at the Kondapur RTO and neither is there enough information on their website. Currently, they just make people going there run from one place to another for simple information, which is highly unprofessional,” said Vasanth Varma, another citizen.

        Rs 2,000 crore boost for 104 missing link roads in Hyderabad

        TNN / Updated: Jul 31, 2022, 06:57 IST

        HYDERABAD: The municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department has sanctioned Rs 2,410 crore to Hyderabad Road Development Corporation Limited (HRDCL) to build 104 missing link roads identified within the limits of GHMC and adjoining 10 urban local bodies.

        A government order on administrative sanction issued by special chief secretary (MA&UD) Arvind Kumar also directs the HRDCL to take up 50 roads at a cost of Rs 1,500 crore on a priority basis.

        These 50 roads are divided into five different packages. Under package I, there are seven corridors, 10 under package II, 13 under package III, 11 under package IV and nine under package V.

        The HRDCL is taking up the development of missing link roads in a bid to reduce traffic on main roads and improve alternate road connectivity.

        Some of the news routes that would be created include Gollapally national highway junction to ORR service road, Vanasthalipuram Road to Old Hayathnagar road, Raj Bhavan road to R&B guest house and link road from Begumpet railway station, Prakash Nagar to Brahmanwadi railway track via Welkin Park station and Ameenpur village to HMT colony, Miyapur.

        "The expenditure should be met by Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority from the internal resources or raising loan from the financial institutions," the order (dated July 29) said.

        Apart from GHMC, the ULBs within HMDA limits where the missing link roads would come up include Bandlaguda Jagir, Ghatkesar, Kothur, Dammaiaguda, Nagaram, Badangpet, Shamshabad, Ibrahimpatnam, Manikonda, and Jawaharnagar municipal corporation. The HRDCL also suggested collection of special development charges by the local bodies to construct the link roads. The administrative sanction comes two days after HRDCL wrote to the MA&UD seeking funds on July 27.

          SC junks Telangana's plea in Miyapur land case

          Sagar Kumar Mutha / TNN / Updated: Jul 31, 2022, 07:34 IST


          Image used for representative purpose only

          HYDERABAD: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a petition filed by Telangana in the Miyapur land scam case and upheld the decision of the state high court which quashed the criminal cases filed by Hyderabad police against the accused directors of two private companies.

          Trinity Infraventures and Suvishal Power Gen were facing cases for their alleged role in the Miyapur land scam.


          The case of the state is that the land in survey numbers 100 and 101 in Miyapur is a government land and the accused have connived with the sub-registrars and transferred more than 600 acres of land in the name of the companies and their directors.

          Advocate General BS Prasad earlier argued before the high court that the accused in this case had connived with some sub-registrars to show that 960 acres in this area as 'Inam land' and avoided paying stamp duty by claiming that there was no sale as they had merely registered the transfer of 'sanad rights' (grant by the king).

          "We suspended the sub-registrars and arrested them along with other accused in the case, the AG said.

          However, the apex court bench comprising Justice Abdul Nazeer and Justice JK Maheshwari dismissed the petition of the state government both on merit and also on grounds of delay in preferring an appeal.

          The companies and their directors, on the other hand, said the land plots were never government property and cited prolonged legal battles and instances of the high court asking the state to prove its case before a civil court in the past and even orders of status quo.

          The state had earlier cancelled the sale transactions after it came across the instances of transactions over the land.

          It also claimed that it did not lose land in the scam and that its timely action could protect its assets. Police arrested three sub-registrars involved in the scam along with the directors of these companies.

          According to Mandeep Kalra, the advocate who represented the accused directors at the Supreme Court, the state could not prove any criminality in the sale transactions.

          The state has no answer as to why their sale transactions were singled out when there were scores of sale transactions that were getting registered from 2014 onwards on plots in the same survey numbers at Miyapur, he said.

          "The high court in 2019 said there was no criminality in our actions and the Supreme Court too has said the same now," he added.

          The HC, in April 2019, ordered status quo to be maintained by both parties in respect of the land.

          The revenue officials are of the opinion that the result in the criminal case is different and the determination of title over a piece of land is entirely different.

          These two are entirely two different subjects and a positive result in one will not result in confirmation of the title.

          Moreover, the trial in Miyapur criminal court will continue against the remaining accused.

            Telangana: Sahiti Infratec buyers lodge complaint, MD vows to chalk out solution

            https://realty.economictimes.indiati...ution/93286890



            They further complained that despite having deposited a huge amount of funds with the company, the company kept on missing the project execution, as well as refund deadlines.


            HYDERABAD: A group of buyers who booked residential flats have filed a complaint against Sahiti Infratec in the Central Crime Station, alleging that the company failed to deliver after collecting money with the prelaunch offer. The company MD refuted the allegations.

            "The company delayed land acquisition, permissions or physical execution of the project. A few members started cancelling their bookings from around February to March 2021. The refund process was delayed and has not been honoured to date," the buyers alleged in their complaint.

            They further complained that despite having deposited a huge amount of funds with the company, the company kept on missing the project execution, as well as refund deadlines. "Of around 3800 residential units, almost 1500 have been sold under pre-launch offer which amounts to `400 crore collected from customers. The number of cancelled customers is nearly 600, out of which company claims to have refunded 150 customers, with outstanding refund dues of up to `150 crore.

            More than 250 customers have not been issued refund cheques," the complainants alleged. Dr B Lakshmi Narayana, Managing Director of Sahiti Infratec, however, refuted the claims made by the complainants. "These are false allegations that I am going for insolvency. We have prepared an action plan for taking the projects forward. We will do all the registrations and those who want a refund will be given one. On behalf of my partners, I assure you that everything will be all right.”

            He said that the company is going to tie up with a multi-national company which will be announced by August 6. Due to the nuisance created by some of the buyers, the company is being shown in a bad light due to which the MNCs may hesitate. So I request everyone to stay calm and their grievance will be redressed, he added

              Over 1,000 acres wakf land reclaimed, Telangana high court lauds board

              TNN / Updated: Aug 3, 2022, 10:46 IST


              Telangana High Court

              HYDERABAD: Wakf land to the tune of 1,022 acres encroached in various parts of the state has been reclaimed by the Telangana State Wakf Board, including 884 acres in just six cases with the help of court orders.

              Acknowledging this, a bench of the Telangana high court headed by Chief Justice Ujjal Bhuyan appreciated the efforts of the wakf board for resuming huge extents of wakf land from encroachers and land grabbers. Sitting along with Justice NV Shravan Kumar, Justice Bhuyan, while conveying his satisfaction to wakf board counsel Abu Akram, also appreciated the efforts of social activist Mohammed Ilyas whose PIL has set the process in motion and led to the restoration of wakf property to the board.

              After going through the status report filed by the wakf board on Tuesday, the bench also put on record the efforts of the state legal services authority for monitoring the wakf board drive at various stages. State special counsel Harender Pershad said FIRs are being registered against land grabbers whenever the wakf board seeks assistance from the government.

              The bench recorded the statistics of the restoration effort launched by the wakf board in its order while disposing of a PIL. Though the PIL mainly questioned the slipping away of Muslim graveyards into the hands of land grabbers and unconnected third parties and the inaction of the authorities, the bench expanded it to cover scores of wakf properties that were under encroachment.

              According to the report furnished by Shahnawaz Qasim, CEO of the wakf board, as many as 989 eviction cases covering 817 acres of encroached land had been referred to the RDOs concerned under section 55 of the Wakf Act. 884 acres of land was also restored to the board through eviction orders issued by the wakf tribunal. This land pertains to six court cases and is located in Zaheerabad of Sangareddy district, Maheswaram mandal of Rangareddy district, Nampally graveyard, etc., the report said.

              Sale deeds registered illegally on wakf land were cancelled and 18 acres of wakf property has also been reclaimed, the report said.

                Third party logistics, e-commerce giants drive space take-up in Hyderabad in 2022

                TNN / Updated: Aug 5, 2022, 04:53 IST


                Third party logistics players and e-commerce giants drove industrial and logistics space in Hyderabad

                HYDERABAD: Third party logistics (3PL) players and e-commerce giants drove industrial and logistics space absorption in the Hyderabad market for the first half of 2022, accounting for 67% of the total 1.5 million square feet space taken up in the period, a report by CBRE South Asia Pvt Ltd said.

                While 3PL players accounted for 46% of the space take-up during H1 of 2022, e-commerce companies accounted for 21% and retailers about 9%, said 'CBRE Industrial & Logistics Figures H1 2022' report.

                During this period, e-commerce giant Flipkart leased 2.75 lakh sqft in an independent warehouse, TCI Supply Chain Solutions leased 2 lakh sft in Indian Logistics Warehouse and Safexpress leased 1.4lakh square feet in an independent warehouse.

                According to CBRE, the expansion by 3PL firms led space take-up in the northern corridor of the city during H1 of 2022, and resulted in a 23-25% rise in rentals in this area as compared to 5-12% in the southern, eastern and westerns corridors.

                However, just like most of the major cities in the country, Hyderabad too reported a decline in I&L space absorption during H1 of 2022 as compared to the 1.8 million sq ft leased during H1 of 2021. The supply of space, however, increased during H1 of 2022 to 0.9 million sq ft from 0.5 million sq ft in H1 of 2021.

                Though I&L sector leasing in the top markets of the country declined 9% to 12.8 million sq ft during H1 of 2022 but CBRE said leasing activity was expected to improve as continued land acquisitions and development completions were lined up for H2 of 2022.

                  Hyderabad: Musi floods a reminder to protect river, restore GO-111 and include locals in development plan

                  On a rainy evening last week, an announcement from a nearby mosque was enough for the residents of Shankernagar Basti in Hyderabad’s Old Malakpet to leave everything behind and move to safer places. “In the last three years,” said Begum, “we have been hurriedly shifted out four times to take shelter in mosques, schools, and community halls.” As the water levels rose last week, the government evacuated over 1,500 people from these slums on the riverbed.

                  Rising water levels in the Musi, which was deemed a dead river for the last few decades, are the result of flood waters being released from Hyderabad’s two Nizam-era reservoirs, Osman Sagar and Himayat Sagar. At the peak of rains in Vikarabad and Rangareddy districts, from where water flows into the reservoirs, over 20,000 cusecs (cubic feet per second) of water was released downstream. Submergence of about 160 colonies along the river bank, including the colony where Razia Begum lives, was a given at that point, as per officials with the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

                  These men and women – drivers, hawkers, vendors, house helps, construction labourers and so on who have been living in cramped houses on the riverbed – form the backbone of the city. “Facing Musi’s fury, then evacuating and starting again from scratch is a vicious cycle now,” added Begum. The worst part: it is in October and November that the southwest monsoon peaks in Hyderabad.

                  Former deputy director general of India Meteorological Department (IMD) and currently a consultant with the state’s weather monitoring agency Telangana State Development Planning Society, Dr Y V Rama Rao, said Telangana is likely to receive 50 to 60 per cent excess rainfall this season, like the previous two years. “Usually, it is the northern and eastern districts that receive maximum rainfall in July. This year, it rained non-stop in July. August, too, is expected to see good rainfall. And central Telangana, including Hyderabad, receives its maximum rainfall in September and October during the withdrawal of the southwest monsoon. So we can expect a lot of rain,” he said.

                  ‘Consider not just the rains, but Musi river’

                  However, when it comes to the river Musi, it is not the rains but the river that is to be considered, said Varghese Theckanath, director of Montfort Social Institute (MSI) and the founder-convenor of Campaign for Housing and Tenurial Rights (CHATRI). “It is only in the last three to five years that we are witnessing consistent urban flooding in Hyderabad. Flooding of Musi in July itself and not in September or October is reason enough to examine what is wrong with the twin reservoirs,” said Theckanath, who has been fighting for the rights of the slum dwellers along the river for the last three decades.

                  The two reservoirs were commissioned in the 1920s by the then Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan as flood mitigation structures that doubled up as sources of drinking water for the city after the 1908 Musi floods.

                  Pointing to the narrow lanes where women were busy removing muck from their homes after flood waters receded, Abdul Jabbar Khan, a carpenter, said all the nearly 200 families whose lives were in danger were willing to be relocated. Mohammed Altaf Qureshi, a young butcher from the locality, added, “Give us government housing within a 2-3 km radius. Or at least compensate us aptly according to the going market rates and we will go.” According to him, the residents of the slum have ownership documents and pay corporation taxes and electricity bills.

                  Recalling his visit to Shankernagar Basti in the late 1990s, S Jeevan Kumar of Human Rights Forum, said the 200-odd families in question had built their homes in the river’s buffer zone after 2004. “These areas were demarcated as danger zones but people went on buying these lands from families who had rights for cultivation on the river bed from the Nizam’s era. These slum-dwellers have semi-legal documents and homes were built with the complete knowledge of civic authorities and the government,” he said. Kumar, who has been working for the housing and tenurial rights of people living here, echoed the views of Theckanath as he said the problem is not the rain but the river.

                  The two reservoirs were commissioned in the 1920s by the then Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan as flood mitigation structures that doubled up as sources of drinking water for the city after the 1908 Musi floods. (Express/Rahul V Pisharody)

                  Activists have been crying foul, stressing that when the changing weather and rainfall patterns are bound to cause massive downpours, one needs to look at the ground for solutions. “The city’s topography and contours are such that water from anywhere in the city will naturally flow into Musi. In the name of the city’s development and beautification of the river and its channels, a lot of damage has already been done to the river. As of a 2017 government report, there are over 5,400 encroachments on the river,” Kumar lamented.

                  At Musa Nagar, another slum by the riverside near Chaderghat, residents have been demanding a retaining wall to prevent annual flooding. Around 100 of the 140 homes here were flooded last week. Musa Nagar, unlike Shankernagar, is a notified slum and is over eight decades old. “We face flooding every time water is released from Osman Sagar and Himayat Sagar. A strong wall is all that is required to save us from this misery,” said Kausar Sultana, a senior citizen and resident.

                  ‘Bring back GO-111’

                  After the cancellation of government order (GO) 111 earlier this year, activists have been demanding a rollback to prevent the uncontrolled urbanisation of 84 villages in the catchment area of the two reservoirs that are now open to real estate. The government order of 1996 restricted any major constructions within a 10-km radius of the full-tank level of the two reservoirs to prevent pollution. “The removal of GO-111 is a bigger concern. The government needs to look at desilting the river as well as the two reservoirs to restore its water-holding capacity. The city is connected to the river through its canals. A deluge like the one in 1908 can happen every year,” said Jeevan Kumar.

                  The GHMC, however, believes that its Strategic Nala Development Plan (SNDP) would prevent future urban flooding in Hyderabad. Mayor Gadwal Vijayalaxmi, while speaking to indianexpress.com last month, had said that 90 per cent of the major works taken up under SNDP were complete and the corporation was well prepared for the monsoons taking lessons from the deluge of October 2020. She had stressed that the GHMC was working on acquiring properties that are encroachments inside and along the city’s nalas and convincing them to move to government housing.

                  At the Musanagar Basti (Express/Rahul V Pisharody)

                  According to RTI activist S Q Masood, there is no strategy in SNDP. In an RTI response he received from GHMC in June, the corporation said it had no information available on SNDP other than works being undertaken and funds spent. Masood had sought information on agencies or consultants involved or hired, consultations or meetings held with different agencies and public representatives before finalisation of the SNDP; details of survey and field inspections of areas that suffered during the October 2020 floods in Hyderabad; and details of areas demarcated as low-lying or highly prone to floods after the October 2020 floods.

                  “After the October 2020 floods, the GHMC has not conducted any study to demarcate low-lying and flood-prone areas. There is no strategy to prevent future flooding other than routine activities of building retaining walls and laying unscientific box-type drainage lines,” said Masood, adding that the government should be better prepared in preventing floods and responding to a crisis. “GO-111 should be restored and all encroachments inside the two reservoirs should be removed. Authorities should consider the maximum water spread area instead of the present full-tank level for releasing water into Musi,” he added.

                  As authorities are drawing up new plans to rejuvenate the riverfront by building new roads, bridges, open gyms, and walking and cycling tracks, Theckanath reiterated the need to restore GO-111. “There is a need to protect the river and to protect the people. We need to accommodate people within a 2-3 km radius by integrating people and their livelihoods into the development plan.”

                    Hyderabad: 'Gachibowli flyover will ease traffic woes for next 20 years'

                    Ujwal Bommakanti / TNN / Updated: Aug 6, 2022, 07:37 IST


                    Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation

                    HYDERABAD: Once inaugurated on December 10, the Gachibowli-Shilpa Layout Flyover is expected to put to ease the traffic woes for commuters in the area for the next 20 years. At least so it appears from a recent traffic study conducted by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

                    According to the data, peak hour traffic at Gachibowli junction currently stands at 9,806 PCU(passenger car unit)/per hour. By 2036, the same junction is estimated to face a traffic of 17,711 PCU/hour. Similarly, in Shilpa Layout Road, the peak hour traffic that was about 1,464 PCU/hour in 2020 is expected to shoot to 5,194 PCU/hour by 2040.

                    "Heading towards Mindspace from UoH is a nightmare for me during peak hours, as it takes 15 to 20 minutes just to cross the signal and reach Rolling Hills. The biodiversity flyover can only do so much for traffic coming in from Shaikpet but the vehicles coming under the bridge have worsened several times more due to the rapid increase in residential apartments in the region," said P Vamsi Krishna, an undergraduate at UoH.

                    Officials assure that this four-lane bidirectional flyover - considered to be an engineering marvel among projects under the Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP) - will resolve such concerns. The 435 crore-worth flyover will split into two two-lane independent flyovers over the existing biodiversity flyover towards ORR.

                    "Works on phase-1 of the project began in March 2020 and was supposed to be completed by 2021. But owing to Covid-19, there were various delays," a senior official from the engineering wing of GHMC told TOI. He added: "The traffic analysis was done so that the new flyovers are designed in such a way that they can cater to traffic needs of the city for another 20 years. Certainly, there will be an immediate relief in the Gachibowli junction."

                    Commuters who rue how the construction activity compounded their traffic woes, especially near Skycity building, hope that the project will live up to its expectations. "By 6 pm the traffic from the biodiversity flyover and the ones under it comes to a standstill. Hope the work gets done soon and commuters are relieved from heavy traffic," said Narayana Guruswamy, a local civic activist.

                      A man involved in at least 10 criminal cases was shot dead in Hyderabad Monday in what is suspected to be the fallout of a property dispute, the police said. One of the associates of the victim was injured in the scuffle and is currently undergoing treatment, officers added.

                      Police said the incident took place around 4 am at Neeru’s junction in Madhapur when the deceased, Mohammed Ismail, 34, a resident of Kalapathar, was allegedly travelling in a car with the suspect from Jubilee Hills to Madhapur on the pretext of a meeting, while two other suspects followed them on a motorbike, they revealed. The discussion led to heated arguments and an associate of the key suspect allegedly opened fire at point blank range, killing Ismail on the spot.

                      Officers said a history sheet was opened against the deceased Ismail in June 2019 at Kalapathar police station after his alleged involvement in a number of criminal cases. “Ismail was earlier convicted for life in one of the cases and was released from jail. He had a few property disputes with the suspects. They had met to discuss the matter and during the discussion, he was shot dead,” Madhapur ACP Raghunandan Rao told indianexpress.com. “As per our investigation, only one round was fired. The weapon is a country-made gun,” he said.

                      Madhapur police registered a case and have started verifying the details of the suspects. The key suspect is said to be involved in a criminal case, officers said. Four special teams have been tasked with tracing the suspects.
