Hurry Up with Polavaram Rehabilitation, Naidu Tells Officials

Directing the officials to expedite the process of rehabilitation of Polavaram outsees, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu asked them to finish up the construction of 48 colonies for their housing at the earliest.

Naidu said that he wanted all the details of rehabilitation, compensations and resettlement to be available online to ensure transparency. Rs 50,000 would be provided to non-tribals for rehabilitation along with their house construction costs. A total of 49,106 houses will be built for the purpose of rehabilitation costing the state exchequer Rs 245.53 crores. 

Reviewing the Polavaram project on Monday, Naidu made it clear to the officials that the displaced families must not face any inconvenience and he would not hesitate to spend any amount for their comforts. 

Tribals were already promised an amount of Rs 75,000 and with this new announcement of non- tribals receiving Rs 50,000, the process is expected to pick up greater pace. The construction of Polavaram project is expected to submerge 1,66,423 acres under water displacing 1,05,601 families in both East and West Godavari districts.
