Government employees of Andhra Pradesh will be relocated to the state's new Capital region Amaravati in phases beginning with 4,000 people in the first phase by June 15.

Another 3,000 employees each, will be moved in July and August, it was decided at a meeting with employees' associations in Hyderabad on Monday.

All government offices of AP, including the several heads of departments and corporations, are currently functioning from Hyderabad, the joint capital of AP and Telangana states.

The AP government plans to shift its administrative base to Amaravati by June this year as the administration is now in disarray.

The Chief Minister alone has been functioning from his temporary office in Vijayawada city that is now serving as the functional capital.

Municipal Administration Minister P Narayana and state Chief Secretary Satya Prakash Tucker conducted the meeting to discuss the staff relocation plan.

The AP government is building an Interim Government Complex on a 45-acre site at Velagapudi village in the new Capital region.

Construction majors L&T and Shapoorji Pallonji are executing the works to build six lakh sq ft of office space in six blocks.

The state government set June 15 as the deadline for completion of the buildings where the temporary Secretariat and other government offices will be located.

The IGC will also house the temporary Legislature building.

The Municipal Minister said two additional floors would also be constructed for the temporary Secretariat building, apart from the planned G+1 structure.
