After levying Rs. 8 lakh penalty on a builder for pumping out the cellar seepage onto the roads, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), on Thursday, slapped a fine of Rs. 50,000 again on another construction company for the same offence.

The builder, AMR Constructions, owning the property on plot numbers 308 and 309 on Road No. 25, Jubilee Hills, was allegedly letting out water from the building onto the roads, damaging the BT road.

The violation was apparently noticed by Minister K.T. Rama Rao and Mayor Bonthu Ram Mohan who were travelling that way on Thursday.

They directed the deputy commissioner concerned to intiate action, who inspected the spot and estimated the damage at Rs. 50,000.
