Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) council which is scheduled to meet on August 29 is expected to give a nod to the proposal.

The project that will give a fresh lease of life to the historical monument would be completed under public-private partnership (PPP) mode on a built operate and transfer (BOT) concept.

Sardar Mahal

Sardar Mahal which is located near Charminar is one of the historical monuments in Hyderabad.

It is a Nizam’s era palace built in European style by Mir Mahboob Ali Khan in 1900 for Sardar Begum. However, she never stayed in the palace as she did not like the construction.  

In 1965, GHMC took over the palace, and later, Heritage Conservation Committee and INTACH declared it a heritage building.
