    Heavy rains have been hitting Hyderabad for the second day in a row, causing inconvenience to many people and disrupting traffic flow in various locations such as Madhapur, Hitech City, Miyapur, Secunderabad, Tarnaka, Begumpet, Khairatabad, Somajiguda, and Shaikpet. The rain has led to water-logging and slow-moving traffic in several areas. In response to the weather warning from the India Meteorological Department, the GHMC’s Directorate of Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management (EVDM) has provided helpline numbers for rain-related assistance.

    Given the forecast for heavy rainfall and resulting traffic congestion, the traffic police have advised Hyderabad residents to plan their travel accordingly. Additional Commissioner of Police, Traffic, G Sudheer Babu, IPS, visited Rasoolpura, Tarnaka, and Sangeet Junctions to monitor the traffic conditions on Monday.
