Amaravati: Saveetha University of Tamil Nadu will get 80 acres of land in the capital city Amaravati. Two reputed educational institutions from TN, VIT and SRM have already set their shops in Amaravati and Saveetha will be another iconic private institute to set foot in Amaravati.
The Group of Ministers (GoM) on land allocations in Amaravati has cleared the proposal moved by the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) here on Thursday.
The CRDA would spare 80 acres of land to Saveetha University in two spells of 40 acres each based on the progress of the work. GoM had directed the officials to issue notices to the firms and institutions, which did not start works even after taking the land into their possession in Amaravati.
GoM chairman Yanamala Ramakrishnudu made it clear that all firms which got the land should start the work in stipulated time. He said that the government would not hesitate to reclaim the land from the firms if they were not willing to launch their operations in Amaravati.
The GoM had also granted its nod for allocation of land to five other institutions during the discussions. While International Cricket Academy (ICA) would get 10.2 acres, geological survey of India (GSI) would be allocated 2 acres of land in Amaravati. Similarly, Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission( APPSC) would get 1.5 acre and AP crafts council would be housed in 1 acre land. The GoM had resolved to grant 2.65 acres of land to YMCA.
