Governor ESL Narasimhan has approved the 'Capital Region Development Authority' [CRDA] Bill that got a nod from the Andhra Pradesh Assembly during the previous Winter sessions. This bill will now transform into a Gazette and Vijayawada is the official capital of new Andhra Pradesh state. The CRDA will be led by AP Chief Minister who will look after the development process of the capital region.
Andhra Pradesh government is likely to tie up with International consultancies for the development of new capital. Already, Singapore and few countries have come forward to provide better infrastructure with all facilities to the capital. The AP government is in search of land surrounding the Vijayawada city. From tomorrow, the process for acquiring land will begin in Guntur region.
