Must read

The construction of buildings in a way that would protect the environment should become a way of life in Telangana, Deputy Chief Minister Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka said.
Bhatti who was the chief guest was addressing the closing meeting of the Green Property Show held at the Hitex on Sunday.
“The green way of life should become a policy for us. We want to pass on our green legacy to future generations. There will be incentives and full support from the Telangana government for green buildings which would save 50% water and 40% electricity,” Bhatti said.

The Deputy CM asked builders to construct green buildings which commoners can afford.
Bhatti described Hyderabad as a ‘paradise’ for investors from all over the world as the city had a good climate, adequate water, continuous power supply, enough land, peace and security, and a friendly government.
He said that once the construction of the regional ring road is completed, Telangana would become an urban state. The Regional Ring Road will help to connect rural areas and to bring their products to Hyderabad city.
He said that it is a pleasure to attend an excellent programme which stresses social responsibility along with business. It is a matter of delight that the Government of Telangana has partnered with IGBC to organise India’s only Green Property Show.
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) commended the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) for spearheading the green building concept in the country from 2001 and achieving the construction target of 11.67 billion square feet.
“It is a good sign that India is one of the top three countries in the world to follow this concept. As far as our state is concerned, the construction of 1.46 billion square feet and the conversion of 2.50 lakh residential units to green norms and receiving the IGBC green building certificate is a big step forward,” Bhatti said.
He said the state government is working hard to provide incentives for green building projects. The government is focusing on building a strong infrastructure to improve electrification, sanitation, healthcare and waste management in the municipal towns and rural areas of the state.
“We request CII-IGBC to help us in facilitating green and net zero concepts in all the villages of Telangana. Within a few years, half the state’s population will be in urban areas. Everything is being done to make Hyderabad a cosmopolitan city. We are providing quality electricity without outages even for a second,” Bhatti said.
He said the Congress government will introduce a comprehensive energy policy in the next few days. As part of measures to protect the environment, he said a 10.5 MW solar power plant was built for Rs 56 crore in Kothagudem and it was recently commissioned.
“Next year we will generate 4,000 MW at the Yadadri Thermal Power Station in Nalgonda district. Steps are being taken to set up solar power plants on vacant plots owned by SCCL and to build floating solar power plants in dams,” Bhatti said.
He said the government will do everything to attract investments. Due to the vision of previous Congress governments, world-class facilities are now available in Hyderabad.
Projects like the Outer Ring Road, the RGI Airport, bringing Krishna waters to Hyderabad, Metro Rail and laying the foundation stone of Hi-Tech City were all done by Congress admins, he said.
Bhatti said the people ended family rule and elected a people’s government. This government is now available 24 hours to everyone.
He said that industrial clusters will be built between the Regional Ring Road and the Outer Ring Road. Industries will come up on a large scale between these two and as a result, thousands of workers will have to live in this area, he said.

“We have already announced that the Moosi River area would be developed according to global standards like the Thames River of London. We are thinking of extending the metro to all the areas of the city,” Bhatti said.

He said that the business-friendly TG government is inviting investments in this sector and that builders are also partners in the state’s development.
