HYDERABAD: The Indo-Saracenic style building of the Government City College in Hyderabad is lucky enough to get a make-over. Thanks to the funds the institution has received from the government, the outer edifice of the college now sports a new look. “An amount of Rs 1.83 crore was sanctioned by the government for the conservation work of the building. A major share of the work was done on the outer portion of the building subjected to pollution,” college principal Dr C. Manjulatha said.

The damaged plaster was chipped away and a fresh coat applied. Lime and sand was used to restore the building. “On a priority basis, the repair work was done on the outer surface of the building. Next time, when we will get funds, the restoration work of  inner portions will be done,” the principal said. The City College was established by Mir Mahbub Ali Khan, the sixth Nizam who named it as ‘Madarsa Dar-ul-uloom’, in 1865. Later, Mir Osman Ali Khan, the seventh Nizam, renamed it as the City High School. The school was moved to the present building in 1921. Eight years later, it was upgraded as a college. The college that began as an Urdu school was built at a cost of Rs 8,36,919.
