Jal Vayu Vihar , Kukatpally Hyderabad is the Brain Child of Air Force Naval Housing Board, to cater for the housing needs of the serving and Retired Indian Air Force and Indian Navy personnel on self financing basis as Group Housing Society . It was a boon to all those who wanted to settle down in an environment familiar to them. As one of the first few projects in the country, the scheme was initially planned for 215 DUs of different categories. Subsequently in Phase 2, another 142 houses were added. The uniqueness of the colony was a total attraction to the Twin cities, by its architectural beauty, outer walls built by Granite, beamless structures and the greenery developed. The association’s efforts resulted in ample supply of drinking water and reliable power supply which made the colony a pleasant place to stay.
Like any other newly built colonies, this colony also had gone through many problems like transportation and being isolated from the then shopping areas like Abids, Secunderabad and Ameerpet. The near by KPHB was hardly occupied as there was nothing to offer. Over the years , the colony became self sufficient with establishment of shopping Centre and other facilities. Development of Hyderabad as a IT hub in the country and establishment of Cyber Towers and Hi Tech Citi totally transformed the surroundings of JVV, Kukatpally. Within one Km radius of the colony we have most modern Malls, Multiplex theatres, super speciality Hospitals, as well as Rythu Bazar. Commuting to the city by public transport has become easy with the proximity of main KPHB Bus stop and Special buses coming directly into the colony. In a short span of time inauguration of Metro rail would further enhance the connectivity.
The BOM gets elected every year by the General Body and each BOM contributed to the development of the colony and today we are able to boast of a full fledged Commmunity Hall, Tennis and Badminton courts and a skating Rink for children. Two beautiful Parks named “Gandhi Vanam “and “Abdul Kalam Park”both endowed with walking tracks are built with the help of GHMC. Further we also conduct frequent diagnostic check ups and Medical camps as majority of the residents are senior citizens who find it difficult to commute to Hospitals. The present BOM has just concluded a Grand Silver jubilee celebrations of the colony by felicitating the Principle BOM Members viz Presidents, Secretaries and Treasurers. Sri Mahender Reddy, Honble Minister for Transport, Govt of Telengana, Loacal MLAs, Corporators and Commanders od local Air Force and Navy Units attended the function. Presently, the BOM is in the process of moving towards cash less transactions. Perhaps this is the only colony offering Happy and Healthy community living with full belief in Maha Upanishad phrase VASUDHAIVA KUTUMABAKAM.
The above write-up is a glimpse of our magnificent society and not an exhaustive detail of it. One can only experience the hidden pleasure it offers by becoming a part of it.
