The restaurant found to have a dozen Haleem ‘bhattis’ on the terrace. The GHMC seems to have learnt something from the City Light Hotel incident. In the last few days, municipal officials have begun checking for brick kiln hearths (bhattis) used for preparing the Ramzan delicacy ‘Haleem’, positioned on the top floors of the building.

The GHMC seems to have learnt something from the City Light Hotel incident. In the last few days, municipal officials have begun checking for brick kiln hearths (bhattis) used for preparing the Ramzan delicacy ‘Haleem’, positioned on the top floors of the building.

Central Zone Town Planning officials inspected Sarvi Restaurant in Banjara Hills and noticed at least a dozen brick kiln hearths put up on the terrace.

Notices were issued for removing them and on Monday, the GHMC staff and the restaurant workers in a joint operation removed them.

“The heat generated from all these brick kilns could have posed a danger to the building itself,” pointed out Deputy Municipal Commissioner, Central Zone, M.S.S. Somaraju.

Meanwhile, the municipal corporation continued its ongoing programme of demolishing dilapidated and old buildings in different parts of the twin cities.

About 24 buildings located in areas of Pet Basheerabad, Ramanathapur, Lingojiguda, Gowlipura, Bhoiguda, Rehmathnagar, Hafeezpet, Nampally, Lalapet, Seetaphalmandi and other areas were demolished

Earlier, GHMC Commissioner M. T. Krishna Babu said that as many as 289 dilapidated structures were identified after the City Light Hotel incident in addition to previously recorded 307. Close to 150 old buildings have been demolished in the last four working days, he said. If owners of dilapidated buildings do not submit the structural engineer’s certificate from among the empanelled engineers, the structure would be demolished and expenditure would be recovered from the owners, he added.

Preparation of haleem inside or top floors of the building damages the building stability because of long beating action and generates a lot of heat inside.

This is a good action ever taken by GHMC Officials. GHMC or Food checking department also should check the quality of Haleem. These people are mixing dead goat and Buffalos meat and fake Ghee and other ingredients which are harmful to the Human Health.

This is unfair. Many temples also have similar cauldrons where they cook food during festivals. This move can hurt the sentiments of the community as this month is very special for us. There has to be a discussion with the leaders of the community before such a unilateral action is taken.
