Telangana govt gears up to scrap GO:111

The move will open up the catchment area of Himayatsagar, Osmansagar for construction and industrial activity. However, the negative impact would be that both the reservoirs may dry up faster leaving Hyderabad thirsting over a period of time. Presently there are over 13,000 illegal buildings in the catchment area.

Hyderabad: As promised during the Assembly election campaign, the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) -led government is gearing up to scrap the controversial GO:111.

What is Go:111?

The GO prohibits any construction or industrial activity with a 10-km radius of Himayatsagar and Osmansagar reservoirs which are near the city.

Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao is awaiting the resolutions that will be given by sarpanches of 84 villages in the catchment area of both the tanks.

MP from Chevella Ranjith Reddy said, “The TRS government has asked the sarpanches of 84 villages to pass the resolutions in support of scrapping GO:111. Once we receive them, we will send the file of resolutions to the Chief Minister. After scrutinising this, the TRS government may withdraw the GO:111.”

It has been a long-pending demand by realtors, builders and industry to scrap the GO:111. However, environmentalists raise concerns that it will pollute the Himayatsagar and Osmansagar reservoirs.

“If the catchment area becomes full of construction activity, both the reservoirs may dry up very soon. The impact of scrapping GO:111 on Hyderabad will be harsh. Citizens will suffer from lack of drinking water,” said an environmental activist.

The GO:111 covers Chevella, Shamshabad, Moinabad, Kothuru, Shabad, Rajendra Nagar, Shankarpalli villages.

“The TRS government is assuring people of drinking water from the Godavari and Krishna rivers. How can the government control the pollution in Himayatsagar and Osmansagar due to industrial activity in the catchment areas?” added another environmentalist.

A section of sarpanches of the villages in the catchment areas said that they have already passed the resolution and have sent them to the state government.

Sarpanches’ Association, president Narotham Reddy says, “If there is any legal issue, then the state government should resolve it by revising the GO. The state government should lift restrictions on construction activity.”

Despite GO:111 in force, it is estimated that there are more than 13,000 illegal constructions that are in the catchment area. 

Majority of the illegal buildings have come up in Moinabad, Chinnamangalaram, Aziznagar, Nagireddy guda, Chevella, Shamshabad villages. Challenging these illegal constructions, some environmentalists had filed a petition with National Green Tribunal (NGT).

The united AP government had issued GO:111 in 1996. A petition against this GO was filed in Supreme Court in 1999. The apex court disallowed any industrial activity within the catchment area.

  • This useless bloody TRS GOVERNMENT NOT WORKING PROPERLY, “kcr” – “ktr” assured that they’ll lift up GO- 111 BEFORE elections and after 5 years elections but they didn’t done yet, they using our development problem and wining, waste government

  • I wish the confusion comes to an end sooner. If scrapping 111 GO in entirity is a problem, it should atleast be lifted in so called the growth corridor or inside the ORR. I hope the government maintains it’s credibility.

  • Since the TRS promised to lift up the Government Order (GO):111, before elections , they must do it. more over if they lift up the GO:111, a huge development will come up those 84 villages area and the revenue of the Telangana Government will increase , this is the time to move all those villages towards the development

  • It is high time that the GO 111 is removed. The area with close proximity to a world class airport needs rapid development as the IT area in Cyberabad has already become overcrowded. It makes no sense having only paddy fields and mango/ grape gardens in the area. With a more sustainable city water supply from Godavari and Krishna rivers keeping the two reservoirs filled only with seasonal rain water and most of the time dry does not make sense. It would make sense if the government withdraws the GO at least partially restricting construction within one kilometer radius and also making it compulsory to plant trees at least in 20% of the land to keep the area environment friendly.
    Thanks

  • GO 111 should be repealed with immediate effect. This will propel employment and rapid progress. With the efforts to bring water from Krishna and Godavari rivers is very much through, the arguments on drinking water do not hold any substance.

  • hello , everyone i don’t understand if they are ready to scrap go:111 why r these people or some authority are coming with all bull dozers and destructing all the roads and compound walls of layouts without intimating the owners … even for the layouts built before 15 years …can anyone give insights into this ….?

  • If GO 111 is not being removed where would the next generation of existing population would live? Government should not only listen the voice of people but also understand and acknowledge. Instead of disturbing the locals in the name of pollution, government should show his interest in tightening the Industries and other pollution creation body in our society.
    TRS/KCR should not forget that if same voters can make him CM, they can take that chair as well, if faith and trust are not maintained. Specially when sworn on chinna-pilla’s name to remove the GO 111, within six months in power. KCR has that six month not completed yet??

  • Amidst huge revenue squeez arising from Ecomic slowdown,liquidity crisis due to under compensation of GST by Centre,lower collection from the Stamp duty in FY:20, till 9 Months, & above all, the Election promise made by the incumbent govt, on the GO111, which was notified decades back,under some set of prevailing contexts, must be repeal/dilute this Order, except keeping 1 ~2 Km, radius zone from the lakes. The city has been growing fast, amongst major Indian cities & the potential of the growth phase, must be fully capitalized by the State govt, without any further delay, so that a Full flegedged action plan by Govt can be laid up to make this Zone/huge land mass, as new SEZ; Industrial & IT enclave. This when accomplished, govt can rake up huge revenue & boost employment,without any financial support from Centre, which is now dwindling. As it is said, Stike the iron, while it is HOT. As far as water supply from the lakes were concerned, the TRS govt has already invested Lakh Crore of Rupees in Projects, to ensure Sustainable & Reliable water supply to the City & subarbs, over next few coming decades. We expect, TRS govt, takes it up seriously & put in place a sort of Core area development authority, so that the huge land mass can be developed in most Ecological friendly manner & Hyderabad becomes the place for World’s richest investors…

  • I hope KCR doesn’t do Jumlabazi, I have huge respect for him and thought him as a man of words… But the promise he made he didn’t fill…If I recall correctly it was said with in 6 months GO111 will be lifted ..and its been a year now… I hope that wasn’t to appease people and get the votes

  • Abolishing GO111 will rake up legal battles from environmentalist, best is to give relaxation for residential development like upto 20% of land area within 1KM from lake buffer zones/boundary and rest beyond 1 KM 30 to 50% of land area. This will be a win win situation to all. By doing this the prices in and around hyderabad will be in affordable zones also.

  • The promise made by CM before elections should be fulfilled. The lands have huge revenues even for government and people have invested huge amounts in these lands. If GO111 is not relaxed or removed. I think there is a danger that people does not support the present government in coming elections.

    Recently they have started scrapping the old layout roads that are more than 10 kms away from these reservoirs and also causing inconvenience to the landowners and developers.

    APPENDIX
    NOTIFICATION
    Whereas a part of drinking water requirement of twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad is met from two surface reservoirs namely Osmansagar and Himayathsagar. In 1988 it had come to the notice of the Government that in catchment area of the two lakes some unauthorized check-dams were being constructed and water was being illegally tapped thereby reducing the flows of water into the above lakes. Therefore with a view to protect the hydrological regime of the catchment areas, orders were issued in G.O.Ms.No. 50 MA dt: 28.01.1989 prohibiting the interception of any inflows of water into the lakes, removal of unauthorized check dams; tapping of ground water in these catchment areas: preventing unauthorized occupation of land etc.
    2 And whereas, in 1993 Hyderabad Metro Water Supply & Sewerage Board constituted an Expert Committee to suggest ways and means to monitor the quality of water in the above two reservoirs. Based on the interim report of the Committee orders were issued in G.O.Ms.No. 192, dt: 31.03.1994 prohibiting the establishments of any polluting industries, major hotels, Residential colonies or other establishments that generate pollution in the catchment area within 10 km radius from Full Tank Level of above two lakes; permitting the development activities beyond 10 Km radius (within the catchment area) subject to No Objection Certificate from Hyderabad Metro Water Supply & Sewerage Board. Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board, Director of Town Planning, Hyderabad Urban Development Authority and Industries Department.
    3 And whereas, in 1995, after detailed discussions and field visits the expert committee submitted second report, based on which orders were issued in G.O.Ms.No. 111, MA dt: 8.3.1996. The fundamental objective of this notification was to protect the above reservoirs by preventing upstream pollution and to certain extent downstream pollution and declare a zone as a prohibited zone. For this purpose 84 villages falling within 10 kms distance in the catchment area were notified as prohibited zone wherein polluting industries, major hotels, residential colonies or other establishments that generate pollution are prohibited and polluting industries are prohibited within 10 Km radius i.e., both on upstream and downstream side to prevent acidification of lakes (due to air pollution).
    4 And whereas, keeping in view, the recent developments coming up in the downstream of the above two reservoirs Government felt that there is a need to regulate the developments in the downstream area also to avoid direct pollution of the reservoirs. Therefore, vide G.O.Rt.No. 952 Municipal Administration & Urban Development Department, dated 29.11.2005, a Committee has been constituted with the officials of Hyderabad Metro Water Supply & Sewerage Board, Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Boards, Hyderabad Urban Development Authority, Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation, Industries Department and Municipal Administration & Urban Development Department to indicate the activities to be permitted in the downstream area and specify the clear distance to be maintained from the bund / Full Tank Level in the downstream to prevent direct pollution of the above reservoirs. Meanwhile, the study conducted by the Environment Protection Training & Research Institute in collaboration with the NGRI / IICT on the possibilities of establishing non-polluting industries within 10 kms distance in the down stream area has concluded that there is not possibility of ground water moving upwards the lakes; no back flow of effluents; acidification of lakes is not of concern in the Hyderabad Region; there is possibility of establishment of non-polluting industries (Green and Orange category) in the down stream and all monitored pollutants are well within the standards.
    …3
    ::3::
    5 And whereas , the Technical Committee constituted by the Government has submitted their report recommending that upto 500 m from the bund / Full Tank Level in the down stream may be declared as Prohibited Zone, beyond 500 mts and upto 1000 mts (1Km) only low rise residential development (ground + 2 floors) may be allowed and beyond 1 Km distance in the downstream all developments such as Residential, Commercial, IT Units, Hotels, Public and Semi Public may be permitted. The Environment Protection Training & Research Institute while agreeing with the recommendations of the Committee have recommended that except 68 listed industries, all other industries / activities could be permitted in the down stream areas of the above two reservoirs.
    6 In view of the above, Government have examined the issue in consultation with Managing Director, Hyderabad Metro Water Supply & Sewerage Board and after careful consideration of the matter felt that there is a need to regulate the developments in the downstream area also to prevent direct pollution of above two reservoirs.
    7 Now, therefore, after careful consideration of the matter, Government with a view to prevent any possible direct pollution into the Osman Sagar / Himayat Sagar lakes proposes to issue following regulatory measures, which would be applicable to the downstream areas of above two Reservoirs:-
    (i) No development will be allowed upto 500 m from the bund / Full Tank Level in the down stream and same shall be declared as prohibited zone.
    (ii) Beyond 500 m and upto 1000 mts (one Km) in the downstream, only low rise residential development (ground + 2 floors) will be allowed.
    (iii) Beyond 1000 mts distance in the down stream, all developments such as Residential, Commercial, IT Units, Hotels, Public and Semi Public developments will be allowed except 68 industries listed in Annexure-I of this Notification, subject to compliance of all other extant rules.
    (iv) For protection of raw water channel from Osmansagar to Asifnagar no layout or building permission will be granted and while approving the layout along the above 100 feet distance shall be maintained.
    (v) 30 Meter green belt will be earmarked all along the existing two surplus channels.
    (vi) 30 Meter buffer zone will be maintained all along the reserve forest and the heritage structures.
    (vii) As the proposal deals with the downstream areas only, the villages falling within 10 kms distance from the Full Tank Level / bund in the downstream are indicated in the Annexure-II of this notification.
    (viii) Hyderabad Urban Development Authority will be designated as Nodal Agency to enforce the regulations; take action against the violators and develop green belt in the prohibited zone.
    (ix) Hyderabad Metro Water Supply & Sewerage Board will (i) prepare a comprehensive integrated underground drainage system (ii) constitute a Special Watch and Ward Wing to monitor the water quality and to furnish the periodical reports to Nodal Agency for taking effective steps against the violators and for strict implementation of regulations.
    (x) Other special measures proposed to be enforced, as recommended by the committee, are indicated in Annexure –III of this notification.
