Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh government has decided to build flats for 9,061 government employees, judges, MLAs and MLCs on 139 acres of land in the capital region.  Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has directed the officials to identify suitable site and construct G plus 8-floor buildings to accommodate the staff. He said the flats should be affordable to employees to clear the loan in easy instalments.

Reviewing the progress of the capital development with CRDA officials here on Wednesday, the Chief Minister said the housing complex should be useful for the employees who had already shifted to Amaravati and those who would shift their families to Amaravati in future.

The officials explained their plans to construct flats in five categories in G plus 8 system. Judges, MLAs, MLCs and IAS officials will come under the first category; gazetted officers will come under the second and third categories; non-gazetted officials in the fourth category and Class IV employees in the fifth category. They said the flats would be constructed in 2,900 sq ft to 900 sq ft area.

The officials said the Amaravati Development Corporation will take up laying of seven roads and the designs for the twin towers were ready.  The Chief Minister asked the officials to complete their plans as per the targets. He said youth with innovative ideas should be involved in the development of capital.
