VIJAYAWADA: The government of Andhra Pradesh signed an MoU with G & C Global Consortium to set up an Integrated Mega Tourism Infrastructure Develop-ment Project. The company, in joint venture with Jayanath Agri Farms, will set up the project in an extent of 48.57 acres located on the Riverfront of Krishna River and Paleru River, strategically located at the confluence of both these rivers at Mukthyala village, near Jaggayyapeta in Krishna district. The total cost of the project is Rs 218.00 crores.

The project is integrated with a world-class mixed-use infrastructure that is spread across 310 acres. The proposed world-class Tourism Destination Development Project has been envisioned as an Integrated Mega Tourism Infrastructure Develop-ment Project with cultural, heritage, spiritual, wellness, MICE, eco & adventure tourism components with an integration of hospitality, leisure, recreation and entertainment concepts. This project on the banks of both the rivers with panoramic scenic beauty and exotic serene environment, most ideally named as Alakananda Riverfront is positioned as the Gateway of Amaravati capital region, connecting the capital region of Andhra Pradesh with Hyderabad city in particular.

 

The project is integrated with a world-class mega residential and commercial infrastructure at Alaka-nanda Riverfront. This project is said to create direct and indirect jobs to more than 10,000 people. The MoU was signed in the presence of commissioner of tourism R.P. Kajuria and founder chairman of G&C, A.V.R Chowdary.  G&C Global Consortium decided to develop an exclusive bathing ghat in the project site as their contribution to support the AP government’s massive efforts in making the extensive and  elaborate arrangements for the forthcoming Krishna Pushkaraalu.

The ghat will accommodate more than one lakh pilgrims per day and also accommodate more than 7,000 cars parking.  Around 30 permanent toilets and changing rooms, sheds for pinda prasadam and food for 4,000 pilgrims is also arranged.
