Officials in the Municipal Administration department told Express on Monday that the State Cabinet has approved in its recent meeting to raise `1,500 crore loan for the ‘River Front Development Corporation of Musi’ for beautification of the river.

The state government has already allotted `500 crore for the corporation in the Budget. “A nationalised bank has come forward to give `1,500 crore loan,” an official said.
