Hyderabad is the largest urban agglomeration both in terms of population and area in the State of Andhra Pradesh. In order to have improved facilities and high standards of civic services; providing better civic administrative mechanism; ensuring better planning and focused development of the Hyderabad City; more equitable devolution of finances and utilization of resources, ensure uniform enforcement and to make the Hyderabad City internationally competitive with World class infrastructure and services, Government have constituted Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation by merging surrounding 12 Municipalities into the limits of the then Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad vide G.O.Ms.No.261, Municipal Administration & Urban Development Department, Dated:16.04.2007.

Since the constitution of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, large amounts have been spent in the erstwhile surrounding 12 Municipalities to improve the quality of infrastructure and civic amenities. As a result substantial developments have taken place in the above areas and quality of services has also improved appreciably. After formation of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and due to location of International Airport at Shamshabad tremendous development activities are taking place in the surrounding areas of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.

The Villages which are contiguous part of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and due to strategic location with vast availability of lands for the purpose of rapid urbanization which are offering great potential for expansion and concentration of activities and continues to offer opportunities for increased employment. Further the population of surrounding Gram Panchayats has substantially increased over the last one decade and number of residential townships have come up which require better infrastructure and amenities apart from providing central administration for effective provision of civic amenities and co-ordinated development of infrastructure and maintenance of city level services.

Except certain civic functions like levy and collection of property tax, issue of Building Permissions, Maintenance of roads and drain, all other major amenities and services like supply of drinking water, management of sewerage and drainage net work, urban transportation system, environment management system etc., cannot be done in components or locally and need to be tackled in an integrated manner by an appropriate civic management structure with proper planning, resource mobilization and technical capabilities. As such the existing separate local bodies of the surrounding Gram Panchayats will be unable to cope up with the increasing pressure on account of rapid urbanization.

Therefore there is a need to strengthen the civic administration by extending the existing set up under a single entity with a clear cut organizational system i.e., Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to meet the challenges thrown up by such fast pace of growth of Hyderabad and its urban spread and to manage in an integrated manner both the metropolitan and community level developmental needs of the extended areas also.
