MVP Colony – Sector IV is a place to live in perfect harmony. While diverse income groups and weaker sections form part of the most colonies, the USP of the Sector IV of MVP Colony is the predominance of higher and middle income groups.

An equal mix of older and younger generations adds grace to the neighbourhood. MVP Colony - Sector IV, with NH16 located to its west, 80 feet road on the north and 40 feet road to the east, is a posh residential locality dominated by a spread of impressively structured independent houses.

Several malls, hospitals, banks, super bazaars, temples, schools, colleges, and hostels dot the residential area spread over 42 acres. Despite the soaring mercury levels, a well-maintained ‘Prashanthi Park’ impresses one with its green canopy. Spread over one acre, the park offers respite to those who want to take a break, relax and unwind. A hub for the older and the younger ones who meet during walk and yoga classes apart from mass chanting of devotional hymns, the park with a new library attached to its premises, stands out true to its name connecting diverse age groups.

Its maintenance is taken care by the MVP Colony Sector-IV Residents’ Welfare Association along with the colony people. “The association spends Rs.10,000 per month on maintenance of the park. “Soon, we will be introducing a ‘grandhalayam’ to bring the old timers and the younger generation together so that they can connect with each other, share views and come up with new ideas for the better development of the colony,” says association president K.M. Lakshmana Rao, who has been living in the colony for the past 28 years.

While diverse income groups and weaker sections form part of the most colonies, the USP of the Sector IV of MVP Colony is the predominance of higher and middle income groups.

Different communities

Formed in 1975 by the Town Planning Trust, the development of the colony is subsequently taken care by VUDA. From a total of 60 houses in 1985, the much sought-after residential colony now has 170 independent houses and six apartment complexes where approximately 2,750 people of different communities live in perfect harmony.

“The place is very peaceful and mirrors the unique feature of unity in diversity as Muslims, Hindus, and Christians live amicably in the colony for several years now. In case of any issues, we come together to sort it out,” says P. Venkateswara Rao, who has been residing in the colony since 1992.
