GUNTUR: Villagers in the capital region were seen weighing the pros and cons of the final master plan, including the impact of future expansion of Amaravati to 1 lakh acres, on Tuesday.

Singaporean planners proposed the capital in three phases: Phase-1 to be developed across 15,280 hectares (37,758 acres) in 10 years.
