Private players to get share in capital Vijayawada buildings

Quote:
The Andhra Pradesh government is planning to hand over the construction of various buildings in the new capital to contractors, and give them a share. It wants to construct the buildings at its earliest and expedite the process with not too much financial burden on the exchequer.

According to the new Land Acquisition Act 2014, the acquisition of land from individuals and farmers will be difficult. To avoid this problem the AP government has proposed to come to an agreement with farmers and other individuals.

For this the government does not need to spend money in getting the required land, as according to the agreement, 40 per cent of the land will be handed over to the farmers. Hence, the government has to spend some money only for the development of the land.

The government wants to hand the development over to private builders while it will only provide power, water and other facilities. According to the McKinsey report, it has proposed to construct 49 buildings with 44 floors each in the new capital on both sides of Krishna river in Vijayawada.

Sources said, many international companies are showing interest in construction of buildings. However, in that case, those companies will want 50 per cent share in the buildings. The contractor can sell his share of the buildings to private individuals or companies.

That means, of the 44 floors, 22 floors will go to the government and 22 floors will go to the contractor. In the same building government and private business centres will come up. To avoid this, the government plans to allot half of the total number of buildings entirely to those private builders so that it can have exclusive buildings for government offices.

VIJAYAWADA: Vijayawada, the city around which the new capital for the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh will come up, has turned into a goldmine for big time investors in real estate.

In a State where business and politics are intertwined, a lot of hype was being built since a few months over better prospects for the coastal corridor between Vijayawada and Prakasam district -- the stretch where the capital was expected to come up.

With each passing day, land rates were going up, only to reach the peak once Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu announced in the Assembly that the AP’s capital will come up around Vijayawada.

Apart from farmers and others holding small chunks, politicos of all hues as well as big industrialists, who have been sitting on huge land banks, have literally hit the jackpot.

Among those who acquired lands over a period of time are MLAs, Ministers and MPs and the bigwigs of film industry, though they are represented by their nominees in official documents.

According to information gathered from various sources, hundreds of acres have been acquired by prominent/monied people in the mandals of Kanchikacherla, Veerulapadu, Chendarlapadu, Mylavaram, Nuzvid, Agirilpalli, Musunuru, Bapulapadu and A Konduru -- all of them in Krishna district for which Vijayawada had been the commercial hub since decades.
There are also some who were said to have purchased lands in Nandigama, Mylavaram and Nuzvid Assembly constituencies, all of them contiguous to Vijayawada. Once work on building the capital begins, almost every town abutting Vijayawada is expected to benefit from the spin-off effect, thereby resulting in a sharp rise in land prices.

Interestingly, it is not only leaders of the ruling TDP who were said to have bet big time on real estate. Even those representing the Opposition YSRC and some big educational institutes have reportedly invested in land, some of them having done so close to the newly proposed 184-km outer ring road (ORR).

Amaravati, a historic town close to Vijayawada, the stretch leading up to Nagarjuna University near Guntur and Gannavaram where the airport is currently located are the other areas where huge chunks of land was said to have changed hands ever since the Centre speeded up the process of bifurcation of AP last year. Interestingly, the Chennai-Kolkata national highway also passes through the same stretch.

Hyderabad: The capital of AP will not be modelled on any one particular city; instead best aspects of different cities across the globe would be emulated to suit local conditions and topography. While clustered development model found in Putrajaya, Malaysia and Navi Mumbai, could be adopted for buildings, the river-front model of Thames in London, skyscrapers of New York, city structure of China, or port-based development like Singapore and Dubai, could also be considered for implementation, feels the government. The state-level advisory committee on capital city, comprising business honchos and headed by the municipal administration minister, has already commenced its junket to 10 cities, four of which are in India and six abroad. The list of cities to be visited by the committee may increase.

Speaking to this newspaper over the phone from Gandhinagar in Gujarat, municipal and urban development minister Dr P. Narayana said they were visiting different cities to adopt the best methods and models of world class cities. “Another important reason for the committee’s visit to various cities in India and abroad is to study and avoid the mistakes committed in building capitals, while constructing the capital for Andhra Pradesh. The formula is to adopt best design, techniques, methods and models and avoid mistakes and gaps left after construction of world class cities,” Mr Narayana said.

He cited the example of Gandhinagar, built 25 km from Ahmedabad, due to which people could return to Ahmedabad, after work. “There used to be no social life in Gandhinagar. Prime Minister Narendra Modi encouraged social life by giving land on outskirts to private players to build residential colonies and the social life is now increasing,” he said. and added AP’s capital city location will not face such problems as both Vijayawada and Guntur are well developed cities with proper social life. Singapore government and McKinsey, among others, have stepped forward to help the AP government in building a world class capital city. Also experts from education, medical, health, technical, IT and other industries, among others, will be appointed soon to help the government to design and build.
