    LIG plot prices in Dakamarri may be decided by Andhra Pradesh govt

    Earlier, in 2016, Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority had priced a square yard of the LIG plot at Rs 6,000. But due to surge in land prices in the ensuing years, it is now unfeasible to sell off the plots at the earlier rateUmamaheswara Rao | TNN | September 02, 2018, 11:05 IST





    VISAKHAPATNAM: Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority (Vuda) is contemplating on writing to the state government to seek clarity on the prices of the LIG plots at “Fortune Hills” in Dakamarri. Earlier, in 2016, Vuda had priced a square yard of the LIG plot at Rs 6,000. But due to surge in land prices in the ensuing years, it is now unfeasible to sell off the plots at the earlier rate as the minimum price in the area now is Rs 9,000, based on the sub-registrar records.

    Vuda officials unsuccessfully pursued the matter with the registration department. It was learnt that they later approached the principal secretary of municipal administration Karikal Valaven, who said that only the state government can take a final call on the matter.

    Vuda released the much-awaited notification, inviting applications from the general public, for allotment of the plots in April this year and planned to conduct a lottery in May. But it was postponed due to being unable to reach a consensus on the pricing. There are 162 LIG plots measuring about 29,480 square yards in this layout. In its notification, Vuda mentioned that the price will be between Rs 6,000 and Rs 9,000 based on sub-registrar’s office rate.

    A Vuda senior official said that they will write a letter to the state government on the advice of Valaven. “The final pricing will depend on the government’s decision,” said the official.

    The layout was developed as a joint venture in about 98 acres. The total plotted area is about 57.3 acres — about 58.5% of the net area. The first round of plots in the layout went under the hammer in 2016.

    The state government declared the reservation percentage for the LIG plots in the layout. Two percent of the plots have been earmarked for defence and BSF personnel, 16% for SCs, 6% for STs, 11% for BCs, 2% for freedom fighters, 2% for differently abled persons, etc. In total 51% of the plots are available under the open category.

      Groundwater levels see a dip in Visakhapatnam dist

      TNN | Sep 6, 2018, 03:42 IST
      Visakhapatnam: While the groundwater was considerably recharged in many parts of the state, the groundwater table in Visakhapatnam district still remained on the lower side compared to September 2017.

      This was primarily attributed to the dry spell during the first two months of southwest monsoon in the district. Even though the district witnessed a good spell of rains in August, it could help the district only to some extent. The water levels in the district has now reached 7 metres range, which reflects a 0.6 metre dip compared to last September.

      In some areas of the district, the water level decreased by as much as 10 metres. For instance, the water level in Atchutapuram has now dropped to 22.3 m from 12.5 m in September 2018. Same is the situation in many parts in and around Vizag city. The water level in Edatam near Payakaraopeta now stands at 13.3 m against 5.4 m last year. Parawada is the most-affected with the groundwater level dipping to 18.3 m compared to 10.3 m in September 2017.

      Apart from the decreased rainfall, exploitation of water resources and increased constructional activity has been leading to this phenomenon. The other mandals/areas that witnessed a drop in the ground water levels include Rolugunta, Sabbavaram, Nakkapalli, Gajuwaka, Kotauratla, and Kasimkota.

      Visakhapatnam district registered about 542 cm rainfall against the normal of 554 as of date from the start of the southwest monsoon. Anantapur district fared well when it came to groundwater recharging this year in Andhra Pradesh as the average water level now stands at 20.3 m against 25 m during the same period last year. The groundwater levels have shot up by about 1 m in Srikakulam, East Godavari, West Godavari and Krishna districts.

      Despite the decreased groundwater table in Vizag, Yeleru reservoir gradually filling to its brim can be a blessing in disguise for the residents of Vizag city. For the first time after five years, it touched the 82.5 metres range in September itself.

      A GVMC official said they expect a smooth summer this year as the water levels in Yeleru are sufficient to sail through the summer. “There will be likely no need of dead storage pumping this year. We hope the reservoir reach its full capacity of 86 metres by October-November,” the official added.

        Soon, alternative road to Gopalapatnam will ease traffic snarls at NAD junction

        TNN | Sep 10, 2018, 02:37 IST

        Visakhapatnam: All decks were cleared for the alternative road proposed between Gopalapatnam to the national highway, via Laxmi Nagar, with the ministry of defence according ‘working permission’ to the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) and the Naval Science and Technological Laboratory (NSTL) agreeing to part ways with their land for an alternative land for this road project.

        Nearly three km detour was proposed about six year ago as a measure to ease the traffic at the busy NAD junction. The commuters from Gopalapatnam route can avoid the NAD junction with the proposed road. But the project didn’t made any progress due to the land issue.

        The alternative road is expected to ease about 20-25% traffic near NAD Junction. A 1,562 square metres of defence land in the NSTL campus has been acquired by the GVMC. In exchange, an equal amount of land has been provided to the NSTL at an alternative location adjoining the NSTL campus. Documents to this effects were exchanged between the NSTL and GVMC and district officials on Saturday.

        Vizag West MLA PVGR Naidu (Gana Babu), who aggressively pursued the project, said that the road works will be likely completed by this December. “The road will help reduce the traffic burden on the NAD junction. We were finally successful in getting the required approvals from the defence ministry through our continuous efforts,” said Naidu. The ever increasing traffic congestion at NAD Kotha Road has turned into a nightmare for the commuters. With the traffic coming to a standstill on a continuous basis, particularly in the mornings and evenings, it takes many green signals for the motorists to cross this busiest stretch of the city.

        Even though the Visakhapatnam Metropolitan Region Development Authority (VMRDA) has embarked on construction of a multi-level grade separator (flyover) at the NAD junction a few months ago, it is expected to take two years before completion. With the ongoing flyover construction works, the traffic travails had further increased at this junction.

        At this juncture, if the alternative becomes operational in the next few months, it will greatly help the commuters of the area.

          Traffic cops mull over intelligent system to decongest city roads

          TNN | Sep 10, 2018, 02:47 IST

          Vijayawada: Traffic police in the city are planning to follow Intelligent Traffic Management Systems (ITMS) to decongest city roads.

          The new intelligent system, which is being implemented successfully in Pune, Jaipur, Kolkata and Ahmedabad, is expected to be installed soon as the city traffic managers have already sent their proposals to the state government.

          The city has been facing problems for many years with three national highways passing through it and covering around 111 km in the city limits- which is the second highest in the country after Delhi. Apart from national highways, about 52 km of state highways are also passing through the city.

          Nearly 43,700 vehicles from outside are coming to Vijayawada every day. Being the biggest in Asia, the Auto Nagar area gets about 3,000 lorries any day for repairs and other purposes. This is excluding the local city vehicles as the entire traffic goes through the city in the absence of an outer ring road or a proper bypass road.

          The vehicular traffic has increased many folds especially after the city was made part of the capital region with the influx of people from other areas.

          However, the urban traffic infrastructure was not developed with the same speed, resulting in traffic woes in the city. The ongoing infrastructure projects also add up to the present traffic problems. The existing traffic infrastructure takes a hit with the ongoing infrastructure works like Kanaka Durga flyover, Benz Circle flyover and expansion of NH-65 works, which are forcing the traffic cops to sweat out every day to regulate the traffic.

          Traffic managers decided on the system to end the traffic problems.

            Yamaraj creates traffic awareness in Vizag

            Siva G | TNN | Sep 14, 2018, 20:00 IST



            VISAKHAPATNAM: Visakha city cops came up with a unique campaign in the city for the past two days to create awareness about traffic rules, especially benefits of using helmet. They deployed two persons dressed up as Yamaraj, the god of death, and his assistant Chitragupta, who intercepted motorists and warned them of visiting their homes if they violated traffic rules on Friday. They even took the help of Lord Ganesh on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturdhi. A person in Lord Ganesha attire was seen driving the motorbike with helmet.

            By the statistics, 28 people without helmets are losing their lives in the accidents in every one hour across the country. So traffic cops tried to explain the motorists through Yamaraj and Chitragupta about how the people will suffer even in Yamaloka after death and requested them to wear helmets. Traffic cops organised it at Gurudwara Junction, Maddilapalem and other areas. On Thursday, Madhurawada Traffic Cops deployed Lord Ganeshs for the assignment at Hanumanthawaka area.

            The traffic wing Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police M Ramesh Kumar said that on the midnight of Thursday, Ganesh Charturdhi, a motorist with triple riding hit a pedestrian on beach road. Pedestrian and one of the Pillion riders received serious head injuries and hospitalized while the rider was killed in the accident. He urged the parents to see that their wards should wear helmets with valid licenses and avoid driving of their minor children.

              200 private players evince interest in VMRDA IT project

              Umamaheswara Rao | TNN | Sep 15, 2018, 00:09 IST

              Visakhapatnam: More than 200 private players, including top information technology giants of the country, have evinced interest in the Visakhapatnam Metropolitan Region Development Authority’s proposed Information Technology City (IT City) project in Madhurawada.

              As per the concept master plan, total 22 lakh square feet built-up area will be created in this project, including an iconic IT tower and IT space, commercial and social space (malls, star hotels, theatres, club houses, etc.) and residential space (apartment complexes and premium villas). However, the VMRDA has been treading carefully before launching the project, which would bring fortune for them. Despite the initial opposition against their proposal of floating a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for this project, the VMRDA insisted on the SPV, which would limit their liability in the project and further insulate them from the unending claims. The state government has now approved the SPV proposal. The VMRDA also stressed on 100 per cent rental guarantee from the government for the project, though the proposal was rejected twice earlier. Consequently, the VMRDA decided to take 100 per cent investment from the private partner for the project.

              VMRDA Metropolitan Commissioner P Basanth Kumar said they are expecting a government order to float an SPV for the IT City project in the next week or so. VMRDA has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the state government during the Partnership Summit 2018 in Visakhapatnam to facilitate the project, which will expectedly cater to the needs of residents in Madhurawada and neighbouring areas.

                Paucity of government land slows down pace of construction, says Collector


                District Collector Pravin Kumar on Saturday inaugurated 320 houses constructed under the NTR Special Urban Housing Scheme at Alluri Sitarama Raju Nagar in Malkpapuram. The houses were constructed in ‘G+3’ at a cost of Rs. 16 crore.

                Addressing a meeting on the occasion, Mr. Pravin Kumar said, of the 35,000 houses sanctioned so far, work began on 15,000 units.

                In the next two to three years, one lakh houses would be constructed. However, with paucity of government land, housing could not be completed in time, he said.

                Once the land-pooling scheme was completed, construction would gain momentum, he said.

                Those who did not get houses under the scheme would get them in the units being constructed on the hill, he said. He congratulated Government whip P.G.V.R. Naidu for his efforts in getting housing to the eligible. Mr. Naidu, who presided, said plans were on the anvil to construct 8,000 housing units in Visakhapatnam West constituency at the rate of 700 houses in each ward.

                Blood donation

                The houses inaugurated would be allotted on lottery basis, and the applicants should credit Rs. 10,000 each in the Malkapuram branch of Andhra Bank.

                Mr. Pravin Kumar inaugurated a blood donation camp organised by the Housing Corporation employees on the occasion of Engineer’s Day, the birth anniversary of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya. The camp was organised to meet the need for platelets after incidence of dengue in the city.

                Housing Corporation director Prasad and other employees participated.

                      Whither hygiene:Municipal Commissioner M. Hari Narayanan inspecting the poor sanitary conditions at the stormwater drain at Gavara Kancharapalem in Visakhapatnam on Monday.


                      Special focus on city slums; screening test will be conducted for viral fevers


                      After the massive door-to-door survey undertaken as part of the drive to curb mosquito menace, the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) authorities have decided to conduct medical camps in its limits, especially in the areas from which rampant incidence viral fevers was reported.

                      According to the officials, 5.97 lakh households were covered during the two-day door-to-door survey against the targeted 5.8 lakh until Sunday and 31,600 houses were found locked. The spillover of the exercise continued on Monday.

                      “As many as 19,600 mosquito breeding points were identified during the drive, a majority of those inside houses or the nearby areas or on the terraces. The mosquito larvae were destroyed and preventive measures were taken. The survey revealed that despite a series of campaigns, the citizens are yet to be fully aware of the importance of keeping their surroundings clean by regularly checking for water stagnation or emptying the stored water,” said an official of GVMC.

                      Now, the civic body, the official said, would organise medical camps in the areas where rampant incidence of viral fevers are reported, mostly in the slums.

                      Medicine distribution

                      “Screening tests for malaria and typhoid will be performed at the camps. If there are any symptoms of dengue, the preliminary screening will be done at the nearest Chief Minister’s Health Centre. Medicines will also be distributed at the camps,” the GVMC official said.

                      At a meeting with the officials here on Monday, Municipal Commissioner M. Hari Narayanan discussed the outcomes of the two-day survey. “The programme was successful and the citizens were educated about the seasonal diseases,” he said.

                      As many as 5,000 ‘Sadhikara Mitras’ and other workers of the civic body carried out the surveillance under the supervision of 500 officials.

                      Drains to be cleaned

                      “The dates and location of hospitals for the medical camps will be announced soon. ASHA workers and ‘Sadhikara Mitras’ will convey the details to the citizens people and ensure the smooth conduct of the camps,” Mr. Hari Narayanan said.

                      The clearing of stormwater drains is also being taken up simultaneously. During his morning visit on Monday, the Municipal Commissioner instructed the officials to clean up the Gavara Kancharapalem storm water drain in two days and address to the issues pertaining to the poor sanitation caused by the cattle there.
