CRDA leads Capital works’ revival

Must read

The Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) is playing a pivotal role in the revival of Amaravati’s capital works, which have been progressing swiftly since the TDP-led NDA government took office in the State. Several Central government sector organisations are planning to establish offices in the Amaravati region, and efforts are underway to allocate space for them.
The State government is focused on the timely reconstruction of Amaravati. Efforts have intensified to set up several Central government sector organisations in the capital region. CRDA officials are consulting with the Central government organisations that were allotted land between 2014 and 2019. Reports indicate that officials have contacted these organisations to discuss their plans regarding the land allotted during the previous TDP government.
Some Central organizations have requested CRDA officials to show them the allocated spaces, while representatives of these organisations mentioned that they had not been contacted during the previous government’s tenure. Some organisations have stated that they will make further decisions after inspecting the allotted space in Amaravati. During the TDP’s tenure, around 10 to 15 Central government institutions and national banks were allocated land in the capital region.
Institutions allocated land during the TDP government from 2014 to 2019 include the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG), Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Food Corporation of India (FCI), Central Public Works Department (CPWD), Department of Posts, National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), National Institute of Design (NID), and the Tool Design Centre. Additionally, National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), State Bank of India (SBI), Union Bank, Canara Bank, Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), Indian Oil, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), and Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) have expressed interest in setting up offices in Amaravati.
Upon assuming office as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu prioritised the rapid development of Amaravati. He visited the Polavaram project to assess the pending work and then inspected the ongoing construction in Amaravati.
During his field visit, Chandrababu Naidu personally examined the constructions that were neglected by the previous government and expressed concern over the deteriorated state. He visited Uddandarayunipalem, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone for the capital. Chandrababu also inspected the houses built for MLAs, MLCs, All India Service officers, High Court judges, ministers, gazetted and non-gazetted officers, and the apartment complexes for fourth-class employees.
The Chief Minister emphasized that in Andhra Pradesh, “A” stands for Amaravati and “P” stands for Polavaram. He added that Amaravati will remain the people’s capital, where the youth can confidently work without needing to migrate to other states in search of employment.
