    Amaravati to have 18 towers of luxury flats for MLAs, officers


    As many as 18 towers of luxury flats for Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and All India Service (AIS) officers will come up in Amaravti, the upcoming capital of Andhra Pradesh, an official statement said on Wednesday.

    Each flat will have built-up area of 3,500 sq ft and the towers will include a clubhouse and parking.


    Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday reviewed the progress on the housing project for government employees at a a meeting of the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA).

    The designs for the towers and villas and blueprints and layouts of houses were presented to him by Team One India Pvt. Ltd.

    According to a statement from CMO, the government has finalized NCC, L&T and Shapoorji Pallonji as the contractors for the completion of the housing project within the next six months.

    Naidu revised administration sanction for the housing to Rs 2,652 crore, from the previous proposed cost of Rs 1,991 crore.

    Non-gazetted officers will have 22 towers with each flat comprising built-up area of 1,200 sq feet. Type 1 Gazetted officers will have 8 towers (1,800 sq feet) and Type 2 Gazetted officers will have 7 towers (1,500 sq feet). Class IV officers will have six towers with flats of 900 sq feet.

    Benjamin Yap, who has now become the Chief Executive Officer of the Singapore Consortium in Amaravati, informed the chief minister that the progress of different housing projects near the capital region is positive.

    Naidu also announced all selected 123 farmers from the capital region will be sent to Singapore, for learning about the best practices in business and entrepreneurship. While the original plan was for sending 100 farmers, the Chief Minister gave the approval for more farmers.

    "Their transition into the entrepreneurship sector must be smooth, so we must ensure that skill building is a continuous process," he said.

    They are among the farmers who have given their lands for development of the state capital.

    Naidu instructed the officials to make clear milestones, and ensure that all 32,000 families of the region are empowered, and become self-sustainable.

    CRDA will allot 32 acres of land to 8 top schools to set up their campuses in Amaravati. Eight out of 11 top schools in the country have responded positively.

    The Chief Minister told the officials to encourage more boarding schools, so that students from other states can also live here and study.

    Naidu approved the establishment of a state level command centre, and allocated two acres for the same.

    He also approved the set-up of a golf course across 70 acres, for national level events.

    AP govt sending Amaravati farmers to Singapore
    CH. R. S SARMA
    VIJAYAWADA, OCT 11:


    The Andhra Pradesh government is sending 123 farmers from the Amaravati (capital) region to Singapore to learn best practices in business and entrepreneurship, according to a press release.

    Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday released the funds for the purpose.

    He said on the occasion that farmers in the Amaravati region in Guntur district had sacrificed their lands for the sake of the new capital and they should now seek alternative means of livelihood with the compensation provided by the government. Singapore, in his view, was the best place for the purpose.

    The Chief Minister also approved the housing project for government staff, IAS officers and legislators in the capital region. The revised cost for the project is ₹2,652 crore.

    Three companies — NCC, L&T and Shapoorji Pallonji — will be involved in the project, scheduled to be completed in six months.

    Separate towers would be constructed for different categories of employees, officials and legislators in the new capital.

    Venkaiah Naidu lays foundation stone for National Waterway-4 in Andhra Pradesh
    The first phase of the 2,890-km National Waterway-4 involves development of a water channel from Muktyala to Vijayawada on Krishna river

    New Delhi: Vice president Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday laid the foundation stone for the first phase of the 2,890-km National Waterway-4 (NW-4) at Amravati in Andhra Pradesh.

    The first phase involves development of a water channel from Muktyala to Vijayawada on Krishna river along with four floating terminals and three fixed terminals to handle cargo operations.

    Speaking on the occasion, minister for road transport and shipping Nitin Gadkari said the project will provide an efficient logistics solution to boost the economic growth of the region and facilitate the development of Amravati during its early development stage as substantial construction material is expected to be transported on this stretch.

    The inland waterway was declared National Waterway-4 in November, 2008 with a total length of 1,078 km. Under the National Waterway Act, 2016, this was increased to 2,890 km.

    The NW-4 would be developed in three phases. In the first phase, the 82 km stretch from Muktyala to Vijayawada will be developed. This would be followed by the second phase where 233 km will be developed from Vijayawada to Kakinada and Rajahmundry to Polavaram on Godavari river. The third phase will connect Commamur canal, Buckingham canal and the balance stretches of river Krishna and Godavari across 573 km.



    An official statement said dredging work on the Muktyala-Vijaywada stretch began in May this year and is expected to be completed by June, 2019. Besides, a proposal for Phase-II has been recommended by Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) board for Public Infrastructure Board (PIB) and cabinet consideration. The authority plans to form a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for the project by November 2017.

    Amaravati farmers leave for Singapore

    Joy trip: Farmers from the capital region interacting with Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu at the Secretariat, near Vijayawada, on Monday.


    The ryots deserve a pat for parting with their lands for the capital city, says Naidu
    As many as 34 farmers, who parted with their lands for construction of the capital city Amaravati, left for Hyderabad to take a flight to Singapore on Monday. Flagging off their vehicle at the Secretariat here in the morning, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said the farmers’ visit to the island nation was intended to give them an exposure to the phenomenal success achieved by it after separation from Malaysia just over five decades ago.

    It was an opportunity for the farmers to explore the diverse business opportunities in Singapore in which they could invest a part of the financial benefits they have reaped by giving their lands under the pooling scheme.

    The Chief Minister said he had promised to develop the capital city on the lines of Singapore which faced similar difficulties as Andhra Pradesh due to bifurcation and vowed to keep his word.

    He observed: “The government is indebted to the farmers for parting with their lands when it was scouting for a place for building the capital city on the back of a confusing report submitted by Sivaramakrishnan Committee”.

    The government was convinced that the capital should be located at a central location and it was happy that the farmers in the Vijayawada-Guntur region came forward to give their lands notwithstanding the misinformation campaign that was unleashed by YSR Congress Party.

    Mr. Naidu cautioned them against falling prey to the evil designs of those trying to throw a spanner in the capital project, lest they should face the consequences including landing in jail.

    Mr. Naidu said the farmers deserved full appreciation for reposing confidence in him and taking the bold step of giving their lands, for which they were aptly rewarded in the form of developed residential and commercial plots and monetary benefits.

    Mr. Naidu said it was his intention that the farmers should become entrepreneurs by learning from the dramatic transformation of the once small fishing enclave which Singapore was, into an economic powerhouse.

    He said global consultant McKinsey & Company was roped in to guide the farmers in improving their living standards by grabbing the opportunities that were set to come their way as Amaravati develops into a world-class city.

    The idea behind sending the farmers to Singapore was to enable them to be prepared to make the best use of the development that was poised to take place in their vicinity, he added.

    AP-CRDA Commissioner Cherukuri Sreedhar and Tadikonda MLA Tenali Sravan Kumar and others were present.

    Naidu for unified transport authority
    OCTOBER 30, 2017 00:51 IST
    UPDATED: OCTOBER 30, 2017 00:51 IST

    Replicate London model, officials told
    Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu instructed the officials to form a Capital Region Unified Transport Authority (CRUTA) on the lines of Transport for London (TfL) to have the best of urban transport systems in Amaravati. This is essential for Amaravati to become a smart city which has been high on the Government’s agenda, said Mr. Naidu in a teleconference with senior officials on his three-nation tour.

    Mr. Naidu directed the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) to maintain top quality in the infrastructure creation in what is going to be a Greenfield city. He emphasised that the constructions should be completed in a time-bound manner. He stated that his focus was on attracting foreign investments and technology into the agriculture sector for enhancing productivity. Round-the-clock power supply, he asserted, was a boon for investors, who can be assured of transparency in approvals and project implementation.

    Arterial roads

    Mr. Naidu said while other governments mulled new land acquisition Act, the A.P government handled the procurement without any hindrance through land pooling with the unstinted support of farmers.

    Principal Secretary (CRDA, energy and infrastructure and investments) Ajay Jain told the CM that the land procurement for 10 arterial roads was completed and steps being taken for flood mitigation.

    Ministers P. Narayana and K. Kala Venkat Rao, Special Chief Secretary Satish Chandra, Amaravati Development Corporation Chairperson Lakshmi Parthasaradhi, Secretary to CM G. Sai Prasad, Principal Secretary IT, MD AP-Genco and CMD AP-Transco K. Vijayanand, CRDA Commissioner Cherukuri Sreedhar and Special Commissioner V. Rama Manohara Rao were among those present.
