(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Andhra Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister P Narayana who heads the committee told the media after a meeting that a decision was taken to visit 10 cities.The advisory committee constituted by the Andhra Pradesh government to look into the issue of building a new capital for the residuary state will visit six foreign cities including Dubai and four in India to study various aspects which would help in establishing a world class city.

Andhra Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister P Narayana who heads the committee told the media after a meeting that a decision was taken to visit 10 cities including six abroad. “The committee has decided to visit Dubai Singapore Putrajaya (Malaysia) Brasilia (Brazil) Islamabad (Pakistan) and Astana (Kazakhstan) besides Chandigarh Navi Mumbai Gandhinagar and New Raipur in India. The committee members will start touring these cities in the last week of September” he said.

According to sources the committee discussed various aspects of 53 cities in India and abroad including their area design and model. That the stretch between Vijayawada and Guntur was turning out to be the hot destination for the new capital was evident from the fact that many members believed that a good capital city could be built in 5000 hectares of land which is available on the stretch.

The advisory committee which includes industry and business bigwigs also decided to rope in experts from various fields like education medical health technical IT industry and culture to help the state government in designing and building a world-class capital city.

For this purpose sector-wise sub-committees will be constituted which will help the state-level advisory committee on the capital city. The committee sources said was in favour of clustered development wherein there would be separate and exclusive nodes for government offices banks business centres and educational institutions among others.

Work on the construction of the new capital is expected to commence after the Sivaramakrishnan committee submits its report by August 20 after which the State chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is expected to take a final call on the location of the new capital.
