GHMC, which has made it compulsory for all constructions coming up in 300 sq.mts plots to have rain water harvesting structures in recent times, has also offered to take them up in apartment complexes and even individual houses through the respective associations, bearing 70 per cent of the cost, said Commissioner M.T. Krishna Babu on Wednesday.

The municipal corporation was also utilising the services of Hyderabad Central University (HCU) students to sensitise the local population to take up the structures and 24 colonies in its environs have already taken them up. Similarly, all the engineering colleges in the city outskirts have been urged to involve their civil engineering students in the exercise.
