Vizag capital city will be built in six sectors of 5,000 acres each - 5 year Plan

TDP-led Government has come out with a clear location of the new capital as it has so far been saying it would come up in the Vijayawada region.  The 17 villages, of course, are within a 30-km periphery of Vijayawada, though on the other side of river Krishna in neighbouring Guntur district.

The villages that will form part of the new capital are: Neerukonda, Kuragallu and Nidamarru in Mangalagiri mandal; Borupalem, Tulluru, Nelapadu, Nekkallu, Sakamuru, Mandadam, Malkapuram, Velagapudi, Mudalingayapalem, Uddandarayapalem, Lingayapalem, Rayapudi, Apparajupalem and Dondapadu in Tulluru mandal.  Name of the new capital would be decided after the land pooling process was completed, the panel members said.

The existing Vijayawada-Guntur-Tenali-Mangalagiri Urban Development Authority would be disbanded and replaced by a Capital Region Development Authority.  The Government estimated that it would cost Rs 75 lakh to Rs one crore to develop each acre of land.
