The News Minute | December 21, 2014 | 8:20 am IST The much awaited Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) Bill-2014 was introduced in the assembly by AP Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister P Narayana on Saturday. The bill would establish the CRDA and which would prepare a perspective plan for 100 years for the capital and a concept plan for 20 years. A detailed master plan for 10 years is going to be taken up for debate on Monday, a report in the Times of India adds. The reason the 10 year plan is going to debate, is because Hyderabad would cease to be the common capital after 10 years according to the AP reorganization Act-2014. The CRDA is expected to be the supreme authority from the ground level to the conceptualization and administration of the capital region. It is also responsible for the land pooling scheme and everything related to the development of the capital region. The bill also gives CRDA the authority to acquire, sell, transfer or grant license for the purpose of development of the land. The bill also allows the state government to constitute the CRDA with the chief minister as chairman.
