Hyderabad: With the GHMC elections fast approaching, the government announced waiver of water and power dues of 1,131 notified slums under GHMC limits. To avoid any legal complication since the election code is in vogue, the government will issue a GO only after the elections are over.

The State government is planning to waive off about Rs 130 crore electricity dues and Rs 300 crore water dues. This, the officials say, will benefit about five lakh residents in the GHMC limits. This announcement comes close on the heels of the

decision to reduce property tax from Rs 1,200 to Rs 101. Even in this case, the GO is yet to be released.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, who held a review meeting with the Electricity Board and Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) officials on Thursday, asked the latter to work out details to waive off electricity and water bills in the corporation.
