534 monsoon emergency teams have been established by the Greater hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to handle issues that residents face during the monsoon season, including as waterlogging, flooding, and traffic jams. In anticipation of the monsoon, the ghmc has set up specialised teams that will be called upon to handle rain-related issues when it rains. The teams are made up of emergency mobile teams, mini-mobile teams, and static teams. Static labour teams will be stationed at the city's designated water logging locations, while emergency mobile teams and mini-mobile teams will patrol the city to respond to rain-related concerns.

Of the 534 monsoon emergency teams in total, 157 are mobile teams, 242 are static teams, 29 are on CRMP roads, 30 are on DRF, 13 are from the police department, 41 are from the power department, and 22 are from the water works. This information is based on the data provided by GHMC. To solve departmental difficulties without creating trouble for residents, preventive measures were put into place.

GHMC authorities have instructed the cleaning and maintenance of stormwater drains, sewer lines, and roadways throughout the season in order to minimise waterlogging and guarantee efficient drainage. chief minister A revanth reddy called meetings with all relevant departments, including those under municipal and urban development, as part of the preventative preparations made for the rainy season. These departments examined and put preventative measures in place to deal with the issues that the general population was facing. In an effort to keep the city's transport, energy and fire departments from experiencing issues, the fire, waterworks, police and electrical departments all took a proactive approach.

These crews will have the equipment needed to pump out water, unclog drains and catch pits, and remove toppled trees and twisted cables, according to a senior ghmc officer. According to an official, the crews will have cars for moving about the region, water pumps for draining water, crowbars, and other tools needed to carry out rain relief operations and return things to normal following periods of heavy rain.
There are now 125 locations in the city where water stagnates, and attempts are being undertaken to progressively lower the water levels. Furthermore, in order to eradicate 32 water logging spots by the upcoming monsoon season, immediate attention was being given to them. In addition to taking action to strengthen drainage systems at locations where water stagnates during the monsoon, ghmc asked residents to cooperate and refrain from littering in the nala. To enable faster drainage, steps were taken to enhance sump pumps and boost water storage capacity. Prioritising funds for initiatives that solve water stagnation locations was done by ghmc engineering staff.

Staff members of IT organisations as well as those of other businesses and offices took safety measures and refrained from making needless trips during the downpour. ghmc suggested that people go outside only under dire circumstances. In order to avoid issues, drainage lids were also firmly closed throughout the wet season. In the event of an emergency, people can get help by calling the call centre located at the ghmc headquarters. Meanwhile, the authorities stated that the ghmc is dedicated to protecting residents' health and reducing the effects of intense rains by proactively addressing any issues and putting in place the required safeguards to protect people and property.
