    Residents in Hyderabad are facing recurring issues of water logging, inundation, and loss of property during the monsoon season. This is due to narrow nalas, haphazard construction activity, and dumping of waste material in nalas that have become a menace for people living in Rein Bazar, Yakutpura, Dabeerpura, and Talab Katta areas. Despite authorities promising solutions, the issues persist. Overflowing nalas have become a common problem in Hafiz Nagar in Rein Bazar, Yakutpura Railway Station, Sadat Nagar, Ganga Nagar, Madina Nagar, Maula ka Chilla, Dabeerpura, Azampura and Malakpet where people have to wade through over three feet water.

    Temporary measures have been taken up but no permanent solution has been found. Civic body employees and public representatives need to work together to find a permanent solution. However, it is shocking that under the present regime employees are boycotting meetings according to some residents. Residents are urging the civic authorities to be more sensitive to their problems and find solutions.

    Lack of major developments and no remodeling of sewage and storm water lines in various areas has resulted in turning these areas into ponds. Despite monsoon works worth Rs 15 crore being sanctioned in 2022 by the GHMC for all six divisions of Yakutpura constituency, there has been no progress. During monsoon season water overflows from the RuB of both Edi Bazar and Rein Bazar resulting in flooding of the area. The affected residents had earlier complained to the Telangana State Human Rights Commission against the negligence of GHMC saying that Yesrab Nagar nala under Rein Bazar had become a source of menace. The HRC directed the authorities to complete the works by June 15, 2022. But no progress has been made.

Here too, about 10 major works sanctioned in 2021 remain incomplete. Every monsoon, residents suffer from psychological distress and financial loss as their houses get inundated with 6 to 8 feet water.
