VISAKHAPATNAM: After bifurcation of the state, several state-level government offices are likely to be set up in Visakhapatnam and already the officials of some departments are lobbying with the Chief Minister’s Office.


According to highly-placed sources, the state government is keen to set up the Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board (APPCB), Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC), office of the Commissioner of Tribal Welfare and office of the Andhra Pradesh BC Study Circle in Visakhapatnam. Besides, the government is also planning to set up the Andhra Pradesh Police Academy (APPA), office of the Director of Ports and office of the Conservator of Forests.

“The government is examining various aspects to set up the state-level wings of various departments.  According to the convenience of the majority of people and the beneficiaries, the government is planning to decentralise state-level offices at various places. Several proposals are being received by the CMO Office and the office of the Chief Secretary as well.

Once the IAS/IPS division is completed, the new administration of Andhra Pradesh will be in place,” said a senior IAS officer.
