CM YS Jagmohan Reddy ordered the housing department officials to ensure the basic infrastructure like drinking water, drainage system, and electricity is provided by the time the construction of houses is complete, without fail in all layouts.
On Monday at his Tadepalli office, CM looked over the work progress during the review meeting on construction of Jagananna Colonies and directed the officials to speak to the beneficiaries and provide electricity to all houses during the final stage of construction.
CM also instructed the officials to form alternative layouts where the work has been stopped due to court cases and other disputes. He also directed them to review the works, resolve all issues concerning the housing programme and resume works at all colonies at the earliest.
Officials had informed the CM that the construction work has been stimulated and the government has so far incurred an expenditure of 6,435 crores on construction of houses in the current fiscal, excluding APTIDCO’s expenditure.
Officials said that inspection teams are periodically visiting the layouts and monitoring the progress and quality of construction by conducting four types of evaluation tests at all places as per the instructions given by the CM and arrangements are being made to establish testing labs in all layouts, they added. Officials visited four layouts and conducted quality control tests in December.
