The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) will renovate the 75 year old heritage structure, Moazam Jahi market. For this they are going to spend about Rs. 1.6 crore. The antique clock on that structure will work, which had stopped functioning a decade ago.
This market was constructed by the last Nizam, Mir Osman Ali Khan in 1935 and it was named after his second son Moazam Jah. In that market there are 171 shops, 52 shops are located in northern side of the market, and 119 shops are located at the main block.
After getting directions from GHMC, GHMC has started repairs. One sponsor came to give Rs. 2.5 lakh bill for the repairs.
GHMC has decided to renovate the 75 year old market apart from repairing the clock. And also sewer system will be provided by the corporation for that entire market. This market is in a very bad condition. There are many drainage points and no sewer system in that area and walls are damaged due to pollution. There is no proper maintenance done by civic body.
The cost was estimated to be 1.6 crore for the renovation on the market. After taking the permission from the standing committee and state government, this restoration works will start.
