The Cabinet sub committee on double bedroom housing programme comprising Ministers A Indra Krian Reddy (Housing), T Harish Rao (Irrigation), G Jagadish Reddy (Energy), and P Mahender Reddy (Transport) that met hereon Monday asked the contractors to speed up work as relaxation and other measures being taken up by the Government would bring down the construction cost by Rs 100 to 110 per sft.

He explained That the cabinet panel had decided to recommend to the government to allow contractors to get sand from quarries from neighboring districts in case it was not available in the required quantity in the same districts without any cost.
