According to Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials, the work of Metro rial on the Chaderghat-Malakpet stretch will hopefully start soon.
The Chaderghat-Malakpet stretch falls on the LB Nagar-Miyapur corridor (Corridor Number 1). On December 20, the corporation started removing properties in Hyderabad which mainly comprised of commercial property.
For this purpose, corporation already marked the area to be demolished for each property as the extent of work varies with the alignment of the work. For example it varies from 12 ft to 18 ft for demolition lie on the stretch from Imlibun to Mahbub Mansion and few other areas also.
Most of the owners of the properties in Hyderabad have given their consent in this case while others have obtained stay against the demolition. The agreed owners accepted the compensation which was paid on par with the market value. They were paid Rs 32,000 per square yard of property acquired.
City Model High school obtained stay against the demolition. The matter was then moved to State Human Rights Commission. The district collector then announced not to demolish school buildings until the students are shifted to another place.
This demolition by GHMC will hopefully end by February 2013 after which Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) would take over the charge.
