Apart from the police department, the new office will also house officials of 60 other departments including the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD), etc. The foundation stone for the project was laid as early as 2015 by Chief Minister KCR.
