It will house a Hi-tech City besides residential and commercial infrastructure of a global stature.
Bapulapadu is 40 Kms away from Vijayawada, one of the commercial hubs and probable for Seema Andhra state capital. It is also nearer to the Gannavaram Airport. Government will also plan a well defined road structure and other infrastructure facilities to attract more companies and investors to the new state. It is said that already a plan for the Hitech city is ready with Chandra Babu and he will begin work once he swears in as Chief Minister.
Already construction companies are visiting the village and are drawing up their plans to impress the Chief Minister. L&T, which had built the Hi-Tec City in Hyderabad, is actively evaluating the business opportunities in the new region. The company has the reputation of completing Hitech city in record time and it will be their major plus point if the commercial aspects are okay.
