    The city of Hyderabad has been making progress in terms of infrastructure development. However, there is concern about the recent decision by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to turn community halls into ward offices. These halls were originally meant for the public to use, but now they will be used for official purposes. This has left marginalized communities feeling neglected and overlooked.

    The community halls were built to help economically weaker sections of society organize events such as weddings and small gatherings. They offered amenities similar to those found in private function halls, but at affordable prices. As a result, they were popular among people who could not afford to rent private halls.

    Activists have pointed out that there are other government spaces that could be used as ward offices, such as parks and other offices. They argue that spending public money on amenities and then converting them into official spaces is not appropriate.

    The GHMC has already begun converting community halls into ward offices in various areas, including those near slum areas. The plan is to convert over 60% of community halls in municipal limits into ward offices. The state government has directed the establishment of ward offices for municipal officials to address public issues at the grassroots level.

    The decision to convert community halls into ward offices has raised concerns among marginalized communities who relied on these spaces for their events and gatherings. The GHMC and state government must consider the needs of these communities and find alternative solutions to address public issues.
