On 28th June, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, N Chandrababu Naidu launched the “Mana Amaravathi” app which has been specifically designed keeping in mind the plot owners who have been allotted plots in the new capital city of Amaravati. This app would come in handy for them if they intend to lease, sell or jointly develop land packets, as it would assist them in reaching out to the investors in any part of the globe.
According to a statement released by the Commissioner of AP Capital Region Development Authority, Sreedhar Cherukuri, the app has been launched with an aim to bring the citizens closer to the state government while also assisting them to secure better deals on their allotted plots by associating with investors from across the world.
The app is not only beneficial for the plot owners but also for the investors as they would be able to analyze all the available options and thereby make a decision that would help them get value for money. At present, 20 services have been integrated in the “Mana Amaravathi” app. According to the commissioner’s statement, the buying and selling module of the app is a pay back of sorts for the farmers who willingly gave away their lands for developing the new capital city.
By using the app, the plot owners can publish informative ads to get the best deals on their plots, be it for sale or lease. “Know your plot code” is an important feature of this app, which helps the plot owner to get all the details of the allotted plot by just entering his/her Aadhaar Number. The app can also be used for accessing the physical location of the plot. It also comprises of a grievance redressal system which can be used by the citizens to get in touch with various departments and address any problems that they might have. All they need to do is register their complaints and the concerned professional will contact them within the shortest interval of time and also resolve the issue within a stipulated period. The users can also give suggestions by using the feedback form that is present in the app.
A meeting between the CM and Sir Dominic Asquith, the British High Commissioner, was also held on 28th June for discussing the interest that various British firms have in investing in Amaravati.
The representatives of TransStadia, which is one of the largest water treatment facilities in Britain, also attended the meeting.

According to the proposal, the convention center would comprise of facilities for about 60 sporting activities along with an indoor arena and a seating capacity of 4000. Sources revealed that the CM gave a go ahead to this project and asked the officials to coordinate with his government for quick allocation of land, such that the work on the project can be started quickly.
