GHMC multi-purpose function halls come handy for poor


    Hyderabad: The multi-purpose function halls developed by Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) in different parts of the city, offering a gamut of facilities have turned out to be a hit among the economically weaker sections.

    Such facilities have provided cheaper alternatives for the urban poor in Hyderabad, who are now able to perform marriages and other functions at affordable prices as they are leased for a lesser charge compared to the banquet halls owned by private players.

    The GHMC multi-purpose function halls in Kukatpally Housing Board Colony Phase 4 and Sitaphalmandi, Secunderabad have become go-to destinations for the local residents to hold marriages and other events due to the affordable charges.

    With the rise in demand for such facilities, the GHMC is also set to throw open yet another huge multi-purpose function hall at Bhagat Singh Nagar, Chintal. Developed with an estimated cost of Rs 3.33 crore, the plush function hall provides a gamut of facilities that promises to meet various needs of the residents in the neighbourhood.

    The Bhagat Singh Nagar facility has been developed on a land parcel that is spread over 1,708 square yards.

    The multi-purpose function hall can accommodate around 800 people and it is equipped with a Kalyana Mandapam on the first floor while the ground floor has been marked as a dining area. Among other amenities, the function hall also has rooms for the bride and bridegroom, a kitchen, security room, toilets and parking. Artistic paintings adorn the compound wall, arch and first floor of the function hall.

    The flooring of the ground floor and the first floor has been laid with vitrified tiles and a false ceiling has also been developed to give the hall a look like the ones operated by private players. The per-day charge to book the hall is yet to be decided. As per norms, the cost to utilise the facility depends on the locality and infrastructure. Like regular banquet halls, GHMC multi-purpose function halls are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. “The charges are yet to be finalised but they will be less compared to the halls run by private operators in Chintal,” officials from the GHMC Estates wing said.
