High Court Forbids Demolition Of Errum Manzil

Hyderabad | 16th September 2019
In a setback to the Telangana government, the High Court today quashed the decision of the government to demolish the Errum Manzil palace and other buildings in a 30-acre site housing the palace to build a new Assembly complex in the premises.

The court heard the cases (including 8 PILs) filed against the State government's decision to build a new Assembly complex at Errum Manzil by demolishing the existing structures. After hearing all the parties concerned, the court delivered its ruling against the government's decision to raze the historic structure to construct new buildings.

The court observed that as per the 2010 master plan, the Errum Manzil fell under a special reservation zone (SRZ), which meant it enjoyed protection from demolition under Regulation 13 of the Zoning Regulations, 1981, for the city. Only the HMDA could then give permission for the demolition, and the government could not bypass that by repealing Regulation 13 altogether, the court said.

For the uninitiated, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had planned to build a new Assembly complex at the site of the Errum Manzil at an estimated cost of Rs 100 crore, and allocated another Rs 400 crore for a modern Secretariat complex after demolishing the existing one near Tank Bund.
