Vijayawada: The state government is making plans to introduce housing scheme for employees who will be shifted from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. As per plans, the government will allot one plot of land and provide loan facility also for all the employees with bankers’ support. The government has realised that though it is taking steps to complete the temporary Secretariat works speedily for launching the state administration from Velagapudi in Guntur district in the Amaravati capital location, lack of accommodation may hit its plans for shifting the employees. Now the employees are making plans to come to Vijayawada on temporary basis for this academic year.
As per Vijayawada Builders Association study, rented buildings are also not available in and around Amaravati capital city location for the total 24,000 employees. In this backdrop, the employees are making plans to shuttle between Hyderabad and Vijayawada. After analysing the facts, the government is designing plans to alter housing scheme instead of employees’ request for house sites. The issues related employees shifting will be discussed again on February 28, said finance minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu
