>>>>>Sign Petition Here<<<<<

In Andhra Pradesh, Ground Water Resources are depleting rapidly.

If you take hyderabad into Consideration, Areas like Ameerpet, Begumpet, S.R.Nagar,  B.Hills, J. Bills, Panjagutta etc. The ground water is depleting very rapidly. Now they are depending on Krishna water for household also. 

According to G.O.Ms.No.350 M.A. dt 9.6.2000: every house should have Water Harvesting Pits. Even to get Municipal Permission For houses, they should be water harvesting pits in home.But while taking permission they are showing that in Plan, but they are not implementing.

That's why we have to force GHMC, HMDA,MA & UD, etc to Implement this G.O.Ms.No.350 M.A. dt 9.6.2000 Effectively.

As per G.O.Ms.No.350 M.A. dt 9.6.2000: 

1.      The Competent Authorities i.e., Director of Town and Country  Planning, Vice Chairman of Urban Development Authorities, Commissioners of Municipal Corporations/Municipalities shall insist for facilities and infrastructure for conservation and harvesting rain water in all layouts and sub division for sanctioning the same. 

2.      Every building proposed for constructing plots having extent of 300 Sq. Mtrs. and above shall be provided with required facilities and  infrastructure for conservation and harvesting of rain water viz. Part- A is compulsory and part-B & C or D is optional.
