The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) started desilting storm drains of 100 kilometers length in all the circles today. The project costed Rs. 30.18 crores, as per the GHMC.

The GHMC said that this was the first time it started desilting sewers 5 months prior to the rainy season. Every year, the GHMC used to take up the works one or two months prior to the onset of monsoon, but under the directions of Minister K T Rama Rao and city Mayor, it called for tenders well in advance and flagged the works on January 31.

There are around 951 kilometers of storm drains (large and small), pipe drain. etc., and all the desilting works reportedly will be taken up simultaneously throughout the year to complete the works by December 2017. Around 8 lakh cubic meters silt will be removed.

GHMC Commissioner B Janardhan Reddy said that the works were being taken up in all circles office with modernized machineries including jetting machines in major storm drains.

The silt will be removed manually wherever machines couldn't go, he added.
