Posted : August 30, 2014 at 2:38 pm IST by ManaTeluguMovies


The  much awaited Sivaramakrishnan committee  has suggested that  the capital city of Andhra Pradesh  should not be in Vijayawada-Guntur region in its report submitted to Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

The committee gave options about the capital and positive and negative points of the places. But the committee did not Zero in on any particular place for the capital. It only mentioned the availability of lands and other factors.

Interestingly, the committee objected Vijayawada to be the capital, in the context of the AP government transferring certain departments to Vijayawada, declaring it as the future capital. The 187-page report was compiled by the  committee after touring all 13 districts and  received  4528  memorandums .

Salient features  of the report  submitted   are 

1. Special status  is essential for AP 
2. Capital in Vijayawda-Guntur will  not be economically and environmentally  advisable
3. Rs.1536 crore needed for providing basic infrastructure 
4. AP Assembly Secretariat and High court need not be in one location
5. Raj bhavan needs 15 acres, Assembly  80-100 acres
6. VGTM  region needs  10,000 acres for the capital
7. 20 acres for CMO and  Secretariat  in VGTM
8. VGTM needs   3-4 years to acquire land and  has only 1458 acres available
9. CMO in Nuziveedu and Gannavaram
