HYDERABAD: Minister KT Rama Rao (KTR) along with cabinet colleagues Mohammed Mahmood Ali, Puvvada Ajay Kumar and DGP Mahendar Reddy, reviewed the progress of ongoing construction work at Police Command Control Towers on Tuesday. He said that the state-of-the-art facility, built at a cost of about Rs 585 crore, will be ready in two to three months.
The Integrated Command Control centre and data centre will function from four towers constructed over seven acres on Road Number 12, Banjara Hills. While one of the four towers will have 20 floors, the rest will have 16 floors each. “After the formation of Telangana, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao sanctioned Rs 800 crore for modernisation of the police force as law and order is key for the development of state. Apart from that, money has been allocated for construction of Command Control Centre. In two to three months, the facility will be operational,” the minister said.
The initial cost of project was Rs 350 crore, but it was subsequently revised to Rs 585 crore due to unforeseen works. The minister said that visitors will be allowed to 14th floor of the towers from where they can have a 360 degree view of the city.
