Miyapur (English pronunciation: /ˈmjɑːpʊər/ MEE-yah-poor; Telugu: మియాపూర్), located 22.5 kilometres (14.0 mi) northwest of Hyderabad, is part of Greater Hyderabad and administered by GHMC and developed by HMDA. Transportation is managed by UMTA.

Miyapur has many lakes, upscale residential apartments, communities, schools and hospitals. It is developing into a major residential, educational, transportation and commercial hub. It is designated as a "high-rise" zone and the demand for real-estate has skyrocketed.

Miyapur is one of Hyderabad's busiest places at the head of the Miyapur - L. B. Nagar high-density traffic corridor.[3] Industrial facilities include IT, pharmaceutical, apparel and industrial development areas. It is strategically located on NH9, the Pune-Hyderabad-Machilipatnam highway. Contributing to the growth are connectivity via the Miyapur-Gachibowli and Miyapur-Kompally intermediate ring roads, and developments like the Hyderabad Metro and ICBT.

Government Establishments[edit]


Miyapur, a small village, close to Hyderabad, owes much of its ancient history, to the history of Hyderabad. Chalukyas, Kakatiyas, Bahmanis, Qutb Shahis, Mughals and Asaf Jahis ruled this region.[7]

Miyapur is now a part of Ranga Reddy (RR) district, previously known as 'Hyderabad (Rural)' district, which was formed on 15 August 1978, by carving out and deleting the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, a few surrounding urban settlements that formed the urban core, of the erstwhile district of Hyderabad in the erstwhile Indian state of Hyderabad and renamed as Ranga Reddy district after the Late Sri K. V. Ranga Reddy, then deputy chief minister of erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh.

Miyapur is located at the heart of the Deccan Plateau of the Indian subcontinent in South Asia. Minable minerals include quartz, felspar and limestone.[8] Sand quarrying is also done.

Miyapur falls under the "tropical rainy climatic" group, more specifically a tropical wet and dry or savanna climate.

Greater Hyderabad Zones
  • Miyapur is now part of GHMC, west zone.


Agriculture was the predominant occupation, before the urbanization of Miyapur. The main crops were cotton, maize, sugar cane, ground nut, red gram etc. In addition Flori-culture, dairy, vegetable cultivation were being practiced by the farmers.[8] Sand quarrying is also an occupation.

For sometime now, Miyapur is turning around, to be a more urban economy with people working in large corporates and moving away from agriculture.

Miyapur Concerns[edit]


Beware of 'Durga Engineering Works (Iron Grills)' he takes money and never delivers the goods.

Remedial Measures[edit]

  • The government, corporates and social workers have been doing a great job by playing an active role in the development of surrounding communities and pollution control.

  • Arun Krishnamurthy, The man who's cleaning up India's dirty lakes[34]
  • Enforcing Road Sense[35]
