Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao directed the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to prepare ward and circle wise sanitation improvement plans. He further instructed officials to identify lands on the city fringes for setting up construction and demolition debris recycling plants.

During a meeting with GHMC officials and Collectors of Medchal, Ranga Reddy and Sanga Reddy districts here on Saturday, the Minister said despite over 18,000 sanitary workers cleaning up the city, there is still scope for improving sanitation. He asked the officials to initiate measures for replacing the existing vehicles used for garbage transfer with advanced vehicles as per solid waste management recommendations.

Stressing the need to upgrade the 17 garbage transfer stations in the city, he said the houses covered by each Swachh Auto Tipper (SAT) should be mapped. In addition to the current fleet of SAT, electric vehicles should be introduced, he told the officials.

Focusing on the need to frame a health calendar for Greater Hyderabad, the Minister instructed officials to ensure that sanitary workers are covered with life insurance, regular health check-ups, besides supplying gloves and other required items.
