HMR urged to make public project report

Questioning the ‘non-disclosure’ of the Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) project by its authorities, Country Club India Ltd (CCIL) CMD, Y. Rajeev Reddy, demanded that the document be made fully available to the public.

Mr. Reddy, who is currently involved in a court case with HMR authorities concerning his property at Begumpet, stated that the government body had replied to a RTI that the DPR was an intellectual property, and hence could not be given.

“On what basis is it intellectual property? HMR is a public body, and thus all information should be made public. They have only given us an extract,” he said at a press conference here on Wednesday.

Mr. Reddy alleged that HMR authorities were targeting his property. “Last year in June, they asked me to give 3,500 sq. yards of my property but later, they suddenly decreased it to 150 sq. yards, stating that it was brought down keeping in mind our interests. There is no transparency in their words,” he claimed.
