Dr Gulzar Jalal informed the governor about the functions and services of the academy. He said that the office of the academy in Hayatabad was lacking certain basic facilities due to which it could not be properly utilized for the well-being of poets, academicians and literati.

He said that the office did not have a gas supply line. The governor issued directives to the authorities concerned to ensure early supply of gas to the building. He also directed for provision of necessary crockery and other items for the office.
