Andhra Pradesh Government plans to launch a new housing scheme for Amravati City Government Employees. The State government is going to shower another boon on government employees after doling out many shops, including five-day week. This time, MLAs, MLCs and judges will also benefit from the government’s new plans.
The government is considering for the construction of the apartments for government employees, judges, MLAs, and MLCs in Capital city Amaravati.
The government has prepared plans to construct ground plus eight (G+8) apartments to provide housing to 9,061 employees and others in 139 acres.
In order to suit the needs of the judges and others, the houses will be constructed in five categories. The judges, MLAs, MLCs, all India service officers will be accommodated in the first category.
In the next two categories, gazetted officers will get housing. Non-gazetted officers will fit into the fourth category, while the fifth category is earmarked for class IV employees, etc.
Depending on the category, the flats will come up in the range of 900 sq. feet to 2,900 sq. ft.
On Wednesday, the issue came up for discussion at a review meeting on the AP Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA).
Naidu Focuses Quality
Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu directed the CRDA officials to Remark the area that is suitable to everyone.
The loan can be repaid as Equated Monthly Instalment (EMI).
He said that the construction should meet all quality standards and also be affordable.
The CRDA and the Housing Department had prepared plans for constructing 12,000 quarters to accommodate judges, Ministers and staff and the officers of the Andhra Pradesh Secretariat shifting to Amaravati in July last.
There were plans to provide four BHK (bedroom-hall-kitchen) and three BHK duplex houses to judges and senior judicial and IAS officers.
All others — members of the Legislative Council and the Assembly, Heads of Departments, gazetted and non-gazetted officers and junior employees — will be put up in the apartments.
