Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink! Similar is the situation in Hyderabad.

The once beautiful lakes in the city are no more beautiful. They have become dump age areas instead with these creeps in the shark like problem of encroachment.

Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has come with an intelligent offer – now one can own a lake!

Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink! Similar is the situation in Hyderabad.

The once beautiful lakes in the city are no more beautiful. They have become dump age areas instead with these creeps in the shark like problem of encroachment.

Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has come with an intelligent offer – now one can own a lake!

The lakes can be adopted now. It can be an individual, a corporate, a bank a school in fact of any interested party. The party once adopts a lake has to take care of it as its own child. The water level – the Full Tank Level (FTL) has to be maintained, the inlet and the outlet has to be kept clean so that there no stagnation of water. Watch team which will be employed by the adopting parties have to watch out for garbage dumping and encroachments.

The interested parties have to submit a proposal of upgrading and maintaining the lakes which will be considered only then the permission for adoption will be granted.

The proposal sounds good and workable. This step will perhaps make the city more greener and eco – friendly.
