   GHMC finally starts to work on city’s monuments

GHMC officials have now started to improvise the conditions of all the ancient monuments and archeological sites in the City of Nawabs. There is just a month to go for the UNESCO’s inspection of the city’s monuments. The negative aspect of this program is that the last-minute-hurry of GHMC to bring down the illegal buildings around these sites.


What have been the officials doing all these years? How could they ever allow these buildings to be constructed at the first place? Within just one month’s time, they actually thought they can demolish all those buildings. It makes us wonder what the motives of GHMC are. It seems to be a farfetched goal to be attained. Chaos began after the demolishment of 3 floors in an under-construction 5 floored building in Diamond Hills Colony in Hyderabad.


The Ancient Monuments and Archeological Sites and Remains Act says that there should not be any building within 300 metres of range around any heritage site. The second rule is that there shouldn’t be more than 2 floors apart from ground floor (G+2).


What actually happened was that some buildings have breached both the laws related to this Act. GHMC officials found out 13 buildings among which 3 of them are already occupied by residents. Yet the officials have decided to demolish the top 3 floors and no one can be spared in this matter. Legal notices have been sent to all the 13 builders related to these structures that emerged around Qutub Shahi Tombs.


Residents in these buildings have complaints against GHMC and builders for their negligence. It is a big loss if they demolish now. The construction activity should have been stopped in the beginning when they noticed the construction work going on. They have a point. But the fact that many buyers are being fooled since years hasn’t changed. Buyers should be extra careful and do detailed research before buying a plot or an apartment now-a-days.
