35 gram panchayats may be merged into Greater Hyderabad

Special Correspondent


State keen to complete the process before local bodies elections

List of GPs to be merged into GHMC to be restricted to 32-35


HYDERABAD: There is every likelihood of about 35 gram panchayats (GPs) to be incorporated into the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

The government is keen to complete the process before elections are held to local bodies including GPs all over the State.

In preliminary meetings held by the Municipal Administration & Urban Development with the related departments on Monday, it was decided that GPs contiguous with the GHMC geography and no more a village with obvious urban characteristics should be enjoined to the larger civic body to regulate the development activity and provide basic amenities.

When GHMC was formed, the government wanted to incorporate eight GPs along with the 12 surrounding municipalities but the GPs were left alone when it was realised that there were elected bodies in place in some of them. These were: Shamshabad, Satamrai, Jalpalli, Mamidipalli, Mankhla, Almasguda, Sardarnagar and Raviryal.

An official notification too was issued and later withdrawn so as to avoid legal hassles. Last year, the list was expanded to 20 GPs with the inclusion of Peeranchervu, Hydershakotla, Bandlaguda, Manikonda, Poppalguda, Narsingi, Kokapet, Nizampet, Bachupally, Kompally, Boduppal and Balapur considering the rapid growth witnessed.

Few months ago, Rangareddy district Collectorate has proposed 52 GPs be merged into GHMC with new areas of Meerpet, Medchal, Badangpet, Peerzadiguda, Gundla Pochampally, Utupally, Tondupally, Jillelaguda, Nadergul, Pahadisharief, Sardarnagar, Peeramchervu, Doolapally, Bahadurpally, Pragatinagar, Injapur, Kuntlur, Manganur, Thattu Annaram, Rampally, Nagaram and Dammaiguda.

Senior municipal officials said the list of GPs to be merged into GHMC would be restricted to 32-35 GPs as there were also proposals to form new municipalities too. There were divergent views among officials on the villages to be amalgamated and those to be considered for turning into municipalities like Jawaharnagar.

However, a final decision would be taken only after some of the ‘missing' villages and hamlets in the outskirts are taken into account in the next meeting, the added.
