The global icon of Hyderabad, Charminar is all set to be developed as a Swachh Iconic Site (SIS). Speaking to a leading daily, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) commissioner B Janardhan Reddy said that the Charminar will get a makeover.
The surroundings around the monument will get a cleaner environment by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and the GHMC. The NTPC will also provide the financial and technical support.
The Qutb Shahi monument which attracts thousands of visitors every day will be provided with better lighting.
While the funds in this regard are yet to be allocated, an action plan will be made shortly.
The decision on Charminar being one of the Swachh Iconic Sites to be developed was announced in April and it will put into action after the meet at the national consultation on Swachh Bharat Mission in Delhi.
