GO 111 to be revoked soon: CM KCR
Hyderabad, March 15: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has on Tuesday said that GO 111, which was issued in 1996 to prevent undue industrialisation and heavy construction activities in 83 villages and pollution of Osman Sagar and Himayat Sagar, would be revoked shortly.
Replying to a query in the Assembly, the Chief Minister said the GO had become redundant now. It was issued to protect the Osman Sagar and Himayat Sagar, which at that point of time, catered to drinking water needs of people of the Greater Hyderabad region. However, now, the State government had overcome the drinking water shortage that affected the capital region, and had created adequate alternate water resources.
Water supply was abundant with water being taken without difficulty through projects including the Sunkishala Intake Project and Mallanna Sagar, with Hyderabad not to face water problems for another 100 years. Therefore the GO could be revoked.
However, there could be anarchy if the GO, which affected 83 villages and 1.32 lakh acres, was lifted at once. Therefore, the Municipal Administration Minister and officials had been asked to address the issue in a phased manner after preparing master plans and green zones. An expert committee too was looking into the matter, the Chief Minister said.
“The expert committee report is awaited. As and when we receive that report, GO 111 will be lifted,” he said.
