The department will also handle hoardings, flexi control, water pipelines, power supply lines, flood management, and traffic control.

    Chief Secretary Santhi Kumari has been tasked with preparing a draft on the reorganization, personnel, duties, allocation of funds, and responsibilities of the newly expanded department. Additionally, the Chief Minister urged officials to expedite the Musi River Development Project in line with the government’s goal of making Hyderabad an internationally renowned city.
