AP to notify final 'Master Plan' for new capital Amaravati on February 22

A team of officials from Singapore discussed the final details with the govt.

Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh government on February 22 will notify the final Master Plan for the 217 sq km new capital region Amaravati, Minister for Municipal Administration P Narayana said on Saturday.

The land pooling plan containing micro details like land use, infrastructure and zoning for the 29 villages in the capital region would be notified from February 28 to March 7, he told reporters here this evening.

"We notified the draft master plan for the capital region a few months ago and received objections and suggestions from all stakeholders. We have incorporated them in the final master plan. A team of officials from Singapore, who are aiding the AP Capital Region Development Authority in drafting the master plan, discussed the final details with us today," Narayana said.

Farmers, who parted with their land under the land pooling scheme for the development of the capital, would be given plots through draw of lots from March 31.

Except in three villages, all other farmers would be given plots in their own village. The plot allotment process would be completed in 30 days, he added.

In case of the three villages, plots would be given to farmers close to their villages. GICC of China bagged the contract for designing roads in the capital region, he said.

GICC would also design plans for development of other infrastructure like drains, sewerage system, street lighting, etc.

"They are preparing the designs and we will start road development works from June. There will be 6-7 main roads covering the 29 villages in the capital region. Also, we made certain changes in the draft master plan with respect to some roads. This has reduced the number of houses to be demolished to just 360 from 3600," Narayana added.
