Amaravati: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy held a review meeting on solid waste management and urban housing and suggested changes in the proposals laid for providing infrastructure facilities in smart townships
During the review meeting held at the camp office here on Monday, February 15th, the Chief Minister said the goal is to provide high living standards to middle-class people and directed the officials to provide undisputed, non-controversial, clear titled plots with all the required permissions at affordable prices on a non-profit basis to them. The officials discussed with the Chief Minister several town plans already being implemented in various states and also on how to create a land bank for the scheme and develop infrastructure.
The Chief Minister said providing plots at affordable prices to middle-class people is a continuous process and plans should be made to provide plots to eligible beneficiaries as and when they apply.
The officials have laid proposals for building ring roads around the towns. The designs of roads should be such that both the government and people who give land for the construction should be benefitted and smart town layouts should come up around the ring roads. It is decided initially to develop 18 layouts in 12 towns. The proposals are laid for designing smart towns of at least 25 acres to 200 acres, depending on the population of cities and towns. The plan is to prepare the layout within 18 months after works start.
The government will start Clean Andhra Pradesh (CLAP) program with a 100-day action plan to keep the state clean. Plans are afoot for NGOs and public participation in the program which will have 3825 garbage collection vehicles, more auto tippers, and over 6000 bins and waste management systems in municipalities. The Chief Minister said to start bio-mining and there should be a change in cleanliness in the state with these programs.
