AP seeks CREDAI help to boost housing
- Property show opened in Vijayawada
Vijayawada: AP Minister for Water Resources Devineni Umamaheswara Rao inaugurated the 4th property show of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) on Friday. Though Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu was scheduled to inaugurate the show, he could not make it due to his pressing engagements, including his visit to Srikakulam district and Sri Lanka.
Speaking after inauguration, Umamaheswara Rao sought CREDAI’s help to provide housing for the people in the State. He said that the government had initiated NTR Housing Scheme. He said that the State government was providing sand for construction free of cost. No State in the country was offering sand free for the people, he said.
The government was offering Rs 1.50 lakhs for the people for a two-bed room house under the NTR Housing Scheme. The government had also proposed 16 lakh houses in the State in the next two years and sought the cooperation of builders and real estate developers.
The minister said that the government was giving priority to infrastructure development like ports, airports, highways and waterways. The infrastructure would contribute for the speedy development of the State, he said and expressed confidence that people would get the benefits.
Minister Kollu Ravindra, AP Planning Committee vice-president Kutumba Rao, Machilipatnam MP K Narayana Rao, legislator Gadde Ramamohana Rao, CREDAI representatives Siva Reddy and Sekhar Reddy were present.
