Setback for Telangana govt as HC plays down IAS quarter demolition nod

Hyderabad: High Court of Telangana rejected the government’s nod to demolish the IAS quarters and directed the government to maintain status quo.

Earlier, the T-government was given clearance for demolition of 10 IAS/IPS quarters and 24 quarters allotted to peons located at Punjagutta Officers’ Colony to construct an office complex on the premises.

The transport, roads and buildings (T,R&B) department issued a GO (R T No: 410) sanctioning Rs 67.33 lakh for demolition of the quarters.

The quarters are located right behind the Telangana CM’s camp office.
