GO on enhancing capital city area

The State government on Tuesday released an order formally increasing the area of the capital region from 122 sq km to 217 sq km. The new order, GO 141, was released to rectify an error in an earlier order, GO 254, issued in 2014.

The new GO was released following a communiqué from the AP Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) Commissioner recently. Citing Resettlement Registers (RSRs) of villages, the Commissioner had said in the communiqué that the total area of the capital city would amount to 217 sq km.

He also said there had been a clerical error in the calculation of the extent of the capital city area. The new boundaries will have no bearing on farmers who have parted with their lands, he added.
