The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation have rised an issue of constructing Rain water harvesting pits in every house so as to collect all the rain water and use them properly. For the same they have reiterated the issue many times in the past, and recently GHMC came up with a decision of collecting money for constructing rain water harvesting pits and they told that they would bear half the amount for constructing them in every house.

On Thursday GHMC commissioner B Janardhan Reddy saying that every house must have a rainwater harvesting pit to replenish dwindling groundwater.

The civic body had even begun collecting money from the house-owners and developers for constructing the pits, which added up to a huge amount Rs 100 crore.

But it is visible that there is a lack of seriousness in the work and nothing had happened till date to ensure that every house hold has a rain water harvesting pit. Recently when the RTI activist people asked questions about how the money is being spent there has been no answers and GHMC's records were unhelpful, some officials said that they had sent the money to the head office, others could not answer where the money was, said M Padmanabha Reddy, secretary of the Forum for Good Governance, he also said some officials had admitted that the amount has been mis-used.

GHMC engineering wing officials said an internal probe was on to ascertain as to where the Rs 100 crore had gone. It is not just the GHMC, but the water board too that collected a sum of Rs 22 crore for the purpose, and this money is also missing.
