Officials still visiting few areas - GHMC Commissioner

Harish Rao visited his area on Sunday and interacted with the residents.”  

He further added, “The process of sifting through the proposals received so far has commenced, and they were being listed out and prioritized. “For the initiative, the city was divided into 400 units and Chief Minister K.

Not only estimated amount, can be increased accordingly!  
It is to be noted that the proposed sanction amount is just an estimation, but if the works require more funds, it would be considered by the officials accordingly.
