VISAKHAPATNAM: To gear up for housing activities in the state, the government will unveil a new builders policy in September, said chief secretary SP Tucker. He appealed to the builders and real estate businessmen to give suggestions to incorporate them in the policy.

The CS held a meeting with the realtors and builders on Tuesday. On the occasion, Tucker said that the government was inviting private builders to join hands with the government to construct EWS, LIG and MIG houses in the government selected locations. He said that already 10 national-level builders had agreed to take up housing activities with the state government.

He also told the builders that the government would sanction all the permissions for the housing projects and also provide drinking water and power and other infrastructure facilities in and around the project sites. The CS said that 100 acres in Vemulavalasa, 83 acres in Palavalasa village, 90 acres in Atchutapuram and 70 acres in Krishnapalem were selected to develop the housing projects and he invited the builders to take active part in the government projects.

Later, the CS held an interaction with the CEOs of various IT companies. The CEOs informed Tucker that `2 crore of the IT incentives were not released in the past two years. Responding, Tucker directed collector Pravin Kumar to send the proposal immediately for clearance.

Tucker said that the government had decided to construct World Trade Centres —one each in Vizag and Vijayawada. He asked the officials to make arrangements for the centre in Visakhapatnam.
