Telangana CM KCR has made it clear that there will be no drinking water problem in Hyderabad in the future. Speaking in the assembly, he said that there are 32 lakh 600 acres of land under G.O.111. Revealing that 83 villages and 6 zones are within the G.O. He said that the twin reservoirs are protected water bodies as per G.O. 111. But Hyderabad does not need Usmansagar and Himayatsagar waters now because Krishna and Godavari waters are plentiful. KCR announced that 111 G.O.will be removed as soon as the committee report is received.
In 1996, the then government declared G.O.No. 111 as a buffer zone for a catchment area of up to 10 km and banned G.O. No.111 in 84 villages. Statistics show that thousands of acres of land area spread over 538 square kilometers.
Earlier, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had said that it would take some more time for the government to decide on G.O. 111.
