45 suburb villages merge into Vijawada Municipal Corporation

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu directing the Municipal Administration Department authorities to make way for the merger of 45 suburb villages into the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation,

The biggest challenge that would be faced by the civic body is providing basic amenities like sanitation and drinking water, Mayor told to media.

The merger of the villages like Kanuru, Gollapudi, Enikepadu that already has numerous apartments will make the civic body richer as the income through property taxes and vacant land tax goes up.

It was the VMC led by Mayor Koneru Sridhar which proposed the merger of the nearby villages which have been the most chosen destinations for realtors to build apartments and lay vast residential property ventures that are worth crores of rupees
