The government of Andhra Pradesh will be allocating much of the land allocated for Amaravati region for a proposed capital city, to a government housing scheme for the poor.

The government had procured 33,000 acre of land under a unique Land Pooling Scheme (LPS) to construct the proposed capital city.

However, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had earlier decided to decentralise administration and shift the executive capital to Visakhapatnam, where more than 25,000 acre of the procured land is lying idle. This land is to be allocated to the housing scheme for poor.

Under LPS, the developed plots that farmers got back from the government won’t be touched, but the remaining land belongs to the government now and it can use it for any purpose that it deems fit.

There are at least 30,000 poor beneficiaries in Mangalagiri mandal alone and LPS land available in the villages of Nowlur, Errabalem, Nidamaru and Krishnayapalem will be allotted to these beneficiaries. In Tadikonda Assembly constituency, the LPS land will be allocated to beneficiaries of Vijayawada
