HYDERABAD: In a significant move towards enhancing educational infrastructure, Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao inaugurated the groundbreaking ceremony for a new classroom complex and boys hostel at Nizam College on Saturday.
During the event, he emphasized the importance of preserving the college ground and urged the administration to carry out construction activities without disturbing this vital space.
Minister Rao underlined the need for construction to proceed harmoniously with the existing layout of the college ground. He assured that if necessary, permissions would be granted for constructing multi-story buildings up to 10 floors.
In conjunction with funds from the Education department, an impressive sum of Rs. 40.65 crore from the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) is being invested in the comprehensive development of Nizam College. Furthermore, the State government is undertaking infrastructure projects worth Rs. 144 crore in the Osmania University campus.
Reflecting on his own time as a student at Nizam College from 1993 to 1996, Minister Rao expressed his pride in being an alumnus of an institution with a strong reputation. He recalled the past, noting that even former Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, also an alumnus of the college, did not allocate funds for the college’s development during his tenure.
In response to a request from Osmania University Vice Chancellor Prof. D Ravinder, Minister Rao approved the Adikmet Link Road project, which carries an estimated cost of Rs. 18 crore.
The event witnessed the participation of Education Minister P Sabitha Indra Reddy, Home Minister Mahmood Ali, Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, MLC Surabhi Vani Devi, and other esteemed officials.
