HYDERABAD: It was a memorable moment for 162 families, who received the keys for the new two-bedroom homes built under Telangana government’s Dignity Housing Scheme on Monday. All these years these families had spent their lives in a slum settlement in Sanathnagar.

The Potti Sriramulu Nagar 2BHK Housing Colony in Bansilalpet division, which has come-up under the dignity housing initiative, is spread over 0.7 acres and built with a cost of over Rs 14 crore.

The housing colony which was inaugurated by minister for animal husbandry, Talasani Srinivas Yadav and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) mayor Gadwal Viajalakshmi, is equipped with CC roads, sewerage lines, sumps, exclusively for drinking water and also electricity.

Speaking at the inauguration, Vijayalakshmi said, “The state government has done its part by providing free houses to so many of you, it is now your responsibility to grow more trees in the community and keep the premises clean.”

The commercial space for outlets in the ground floor have been provided along with residential quarters so that rent from the shops could be utilised for maintenance of the complex,” she added.

The cost of each dwelling unit (DU) measuring 560 sq ft is Rs 8.65 lakh. The housing society has two lifts and nine shops, which are a common feature in most of the housing projects taken up by the State government. The shops provide much needed revenue for the maintenance of the lifts.

Two other societies located in Sanathnagar are also scheduled for inauguration in July. The GY Reddy Compound 2BHK Housing Colony and Golla Komaraiah Colony 2BHK Housing Colony, both in Sanathnagar, will be inaugurated on July 1 and July 5 respectively.
