Tenders invited for construction of CAC; works will commence next month: APSRTC official
CACs to come up also at Gowliguda, Hayathnagar, Chengicherla, Kukatpally and Midhani areas
HYDERABAD: The decades-old APSRTC staff quarters at Kacheguda will now make way for construction of a Commuter Amenity Centre (CAC) and a bus depot. The Corporation has decided to construct a multi-storeyed CAC, featuring food courts, commercial establishments and passenger information system with a cost of Rs. 13 crore.
Spread over two acres, there are nearly 256 employees' quarters and 18 officers' quarters at Kacheguda. All these quarters were constructed decades ago and most of the blocks are in a dilapidated condition, says APSRTC Executive Director (Assets Management and Administration) Nagaraju.
Due to the prevailing conditions, a majority of the employees have vacated the quarters. This apart, House Rent Allowance for all employees working in the city has been hiked drastically and as the result, most employees avoid staying in them.
Of the 256 employees' quarters, about 80 are vacant and of the 18 officers' quarters, only four are occupied, says Mr. Nagaraju.
It's a vast land in prime location. Construction of a bus depot and CAC in such a location will be beneficial and can generate huge revenues for the Corporation. While, the bus depot will help authorities in operating buses efficiently, CAC will generate revenues, besides helping commuters through Passenger Information system, he explains.
“Already, tenders for construction of CAC have been invited and works will commence next month,” he says.
