The institute remains closed for most part of the year and is opened on request. The institute is neglected due to the tussle between Osmania University and Airports Authority of India (AAI). It is now under the protection of Osmania University (OU), which acquired it from the then Deccan Airlines in 1955. OU Zoology Department took over the building.
