GHMC Slammed by High Court Over Poor Condition of Roads

On Tuesday, the state High Court slammed the GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation) over the poor condition of the roads in the city. The HC bench pulled up the civic body for concentrating more on VIP areas where such as MP and MLA colonies and Prashasan Nagar, where IPS and IAS officers reside while ignoring localities where poor people are located. 


The bench comprised Chief Justice Hima Kohli and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy. They heard a petition based on the recent reports about an elderly couple, Gangadhar Tilak Katnam, and his wife, Venkateshwari, fixing potholes using their pension funds. The bench added that even though all citizens are paying property tax and other taxes, all other areas have been ignored by the GHMC, leaving people to struggle with horrible potholes on the city's roads.


The court reprimanded the GHMC that areas prone to waterlogging were not identified beforehand and fixed in time before monsoon. Senior counsel S Niranjan Reddy, appearing on behalf of GHMC, said that due to lack of funds, the civic body could not fix the streets in time.


 The court pointed out that the central government had granted funds for Hyderabad under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT ) scheme, to which the GHMC counsel said that despite such financial assistance, the civic body was facing a funds shortage and that it might now have to seek support from the state. Speaking on the undermining of the city's image by neglecting the state of roads, the HC bench also asked how Hyderabad could attract investors with such poor infrastructure. The court ordered GHMC to file an elaborate report on the condition of roads in various parts of the city.
