Although the initial plan was to build 285 houses at Erravalli and 200 houses at Narsannapet, the number surged to 385. At Narsannapet, the demand was capped at 200 houses.
Significantly the District Collector had made all the efforts to make the housing scheme a reality and visited both Erravalli and Narsannapet villages numerous times to convince the villagers to demolish their houses to get the new ones in their place. The Village Development Committee (VDC) had also played an ambitious role in creating awareness between villagers for the 2BHK houses. The VDC had motivated the villagers to stay in temporary accommodation provided by the administration until the construction work finalized.
