Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh, which has been granted 10 years to shift its capital to the new state by the Bifurcation Act has, decided to do that by June 2016. The new capital will be Vijayawada.

The state government has issued marching orders to its staff currently stationed in common capital of Hyderabad to shift to the new capital region in three phases-November, February and June 2016.

Even as the staff have their reservations about shifting to the new capital region of between Vijayawada and Guntur owing to lack of facilities there, the government is also facing a humongous task of finding 55 lakh square yards of accommodation to house all departments and corporations by June, at least in phased manner.

“Department heads were given three options, either they can use district level office for the purpose, make their own arrangements or wait for the Accommodation Committee to allocate suitable space,” committee members Sambob and Jawahar Reddy said.
