Basic Infrastructure Development in Low- income Settlements in Amaravati City

Keeping in mind the scale of the proposed development of Amaravati, especially in a land with no habitation, the government of Andhra Pradesh decided to improve the level of infrastructure in the existing village settlements covered under capital city area at par with the standards of the proposed area. According to the 2015 Household Survey conducted in Amaravati, a large proportion of low income families, were identified in four habitations in the city.

Consultations with local authorities and residents revealed that the villages lacked basic physical infrastructure like water supply network, sewerage system, storm water system, roads, power distribution system, as well as social infrastructure like schools, PHCs, and Anganwadi centres. Field surveys of the habitations conducted by Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) indicated that basic facilities were either non-existent or in a state of dilapidation, hence requiring upgradation at the earliest.

Therefore, the project objectives include:

  • Ensuring efficient collection and management of solid waste.
  • Providing access to basic healthcare through construction of smart healthcare centres and Anganwadi Centre.
  • Ensuring quality pre-school education with classes from Nursery-UKG.
  • Providing access to an integrated multi-faith burial ground.
  • Establishing a skill development centre to provide multiple skills to the agricultural labourers, youth women and needy persons for better employability and enhanced income opportunities.
  • Adopting a pro-people, approach through all stages of the project.
