Amaravathi model townships to come up in Kochi

The Amaravathi Township project

Amaravathi model townships to come up in Kochi, said Kerala Finance Minister Thomas Issac during his Budget presentation today.

Amaravathi Township, the main project of Urban Development Authority in Mangalagiri, was started with the vision of making the capital of Andhra Pradesh like Singapore. It collaborated with Singapore house construction corporation – Sarbana International (Sesma International) and is planning to construct 2, 3 bed room and duplex flats in 50 acres. The township will contain under ground current wires, gas supply by pipes and fiber optic communication lines.

The Andhra Pradesh government is also planning to develop two or three major industrial townships along the outer ring road around Amaravati. About 33,000 acres of lush agricultural land on the banks of the Krishna, about 12 km to the northwest of Vijayawada, has been earmarked for Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s dream project, estimated to cost Rs 3 lakh crore.

Kochi, to be developed in Amaravathi model, is sure to attract more number of visitors to the destination.
