The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority’s proposal to set up zonal offices at different parts of the city to provide better access to the citizens will take more time to take shape. The plan includes five zonal offices in Hyderabad for easy access to the HMDA. The offices have been proposed to be set up at Ghatkeshar, Kompally, Kokapet and Shamshabad. One is yet to be decided, though the HMDA officials said it may be set up at Narshingi. “We have recently visited Kompally and Ghatkeshar. The buildings are still under construction and it may take more than a week to set up the centres,” the officials added The offices will include various departments like planning, engineering, accounts and estate. A committee will soon visit Chevella, Sangareddy, Bhuvanagiri, Ibrahimpatnam, Pochampally, Narsapur, Shamirpet, Keesara, Maheshwaram and Kothur to inspect the buildings and finalise them for the proposed offices.

The expanded jurisdiction under the HMDA include 16 mandals of Hyderabad, 10 of Medak district, 22 of Ranga Reddy district, two of Mahabubnagar and four mandals of Nalgonda district. Meanwhile, the HMDA office at Madhapur could take another two years to be completed. Rs 50 crore has been sanctioned for the complex. It will come up near the National Academy of Construction. The design of the offices will be finalised in two weeks, said the HMDA chief engineer, Mr Vivek Deshmukh.
