Telangana: Flood funds go down the drain 28.5.2017
Hyderabad: Model House at Punjagutta, the RTA office in Khairatabad, the Chief Minister’s camp house, Bible House and 70 other places are critical water stagnation points in the city.  Funds are allocated every year to drain out water after a flash downpour but it is all literally water down the drain as the problem persists. This suits civil contractors only too well, being an annual cash cow.  Stagnation points are those where large amounts of rain water accumulate due to the absence of drains or because existing drains are clogged or encroached upon, impeding the free flow of water or where roads are situated in low-lying areas.  The GHMC has categorised the water stagnation areas as critical, major, and minor. There are 12 critical spots, such as opposite NIMS Hospital, and Oliphanta Bridge in Secunderabad. So much water accumulates in these areas that traffic can be thrown out of gear for hours.  Rain water also accumulates when a road is situated in a low-lying area, as for instance near Raj ...

Every year they bag lucrative contracts from the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and due to poor oversight by the municipal corporation, get inflated bills passed and rake in a hefty profit. This year the GHMC has shelled out Rs 27 crore on monsoon preparedness towards road repairs, de-silting of nalas and cleaning of storm water drains.  Clearing water-logging Pothole filling before the monsoon De-silting of nalas and storm water drains.

However, contractors get unskilled labour from villages and pay them half the amount, earning a tidy profit for themselves and producing shoddy work with an unskilled workforce. The second way in which the contract is lucrative is in falsifying the amount of work done. So where 10 km of a drain ...
