The 2020 deluge is still fresh in the memory of the people of Hyderabad, and many are worried about the loss of property and lives as the monsoon season has started in Telangana. Once again, the city is witnessing heavy rains, and already there are instances of water logging and traffic jams. The IMD has sounded a red alert for parts of the state, those living in greater Hyderabad limits, especially in low-lying areas.


Incidentally, MA & UD minister has played safe by saying that some parts of the city will be facing issues as the works are still in progress. The state government came up with an elaborate plan of action with regards to storm drains, encroachments, trunk mains, feeder nalas, etc.


Of the proposed 61 works, GHMC has taken up 37 stormwater drain works costing around Rs 747.45 crore under SNDP. The works include construction and laying of box drains, re-modeling and widening of stormwater drains, etc. The works are at various stages of execution, and a few of them will be completed by the end of this year.


As a part of the pre-monsoon exercise, the civic body has identified 250-300 vulnerable points adjoining different nalas and covered the locations with safety meshes and installed signboards. To deal with emergency situations due to water logging and inundation of low-lying areas, GHMC will be deploying Monsoon Emergency Teams round the clock. Each of these teams will have Mobile Monsoon Emergency Teams, Mini Mobile Monsoon Emergency Teams, and Static Labour Teams.


A total of 237 pump sets will be available in various circles of GHMC for dewatering of stagnated water as and when required. As many as 76 officers have been appointed as in-charges for 74 vulnerable points in LB Nagar, 32 for Charminar zone, 81 for Khairatabad, 52 for Serilingampally, 49 for Kukatpally, and 55 for Secunderabad zone.


Despite all the measures, residents of Hyderabad are likely to face disruptions as the civic authorities, and state government officials come together to prepare for another monsoon season.
