The Chief Minister directed secretaries in departments of Panchayati Raj and Rural Development, Municipal Administration and Roads & Buildings, to survey works and prepare work plans.

In a relief to Nandikonda residents, particularly for those residing at Sagar quarters or those who have built properties in Irrigation Department lands years ago, Mr. Rao said his poll promise of regularizing their assets will be taken up.

He instructed District Collector Prashant J. Patil to constitute a committee, for regularization of assets and handing over the ownership certificates.
