    According to the Newspaper,Rao pointed out that most major panchayats were rapidly urbanising and merging them with the nearest municipality would bring about uniformity and means to tackle civic issues. Hence, villages lying within three to five kilometeres of an ULB should be merged into the latter.

Collectors were asked to prepare perspective plans for the proposed mergers and notifications along with civic amenities development to the government. Ranks The Minister was also keen on the TS getting as many good ranks as possible in the Swachh Sarvekshan 2018 ranks since it has been fairly successful in campaigns like open defecation free, tree plantation and cleanliness. While Hyderabad, Warangal and Suryapet had high ranks last year, he wanted more ULBs to improve their rankings and said that an awareness meeting with the respective municipal chairpersons and commissioners would be held soon.
