He said as many as 76 district-level offices would be set up. According to him, Pollution Control Board office should also be set up at district headquarters; mining department would be housed in one building and district Collectorate offices would be set up at National Academy of Construction (NAC) at Rajamahendravaram and DRDA office at Amalapuram.

Bhimavaram would be the headquarters of proposed West Godavari district. West Godavari District Collector Prasanna Venkatesh already visited and inspected the buildings in Bhimavaram town and submitted a comprehensive report to the government. After examining the report, the government has given green signal to set up District Police Superintendent office, Armed Reserve office and control room at Vatsavai engineering college at Gollakoderu village near Bhimavaram.
