HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh cabinet on Tuesday approved the creation of the Capital Region Development Authority to supervise the construction of the new capital. The chief minister will be the chairman of the authority and the municipal administration minister the vice chairman. The authority will have 22 members whose names will be announced by the government soon.

The authority will take up two major responsibilities. One, the construction of the capital city, and two, the development of the entire capital region covering about 180 kilometers. The CRDA will replace the Vijayawada-Guntur-Tenali-Mangalagiri Urban Development Authority.

The cabinet chaired by chief minister Chandrababu Naidu also decided to construct a 180-km long outer ring road (ORR) covering the entire capital region. However, on the issue of the CRDA, the cabinet could not decide whether to issue an ordinance or go for a bill to ensure legality to the ongoing land pooling process.

The cabinet also decided to rename the Arogyasri scheme as NTR Vidya Seva and to enhance the upper limit for the health insurance to Rs 2.5 lakh from the present Rs 1.5 lakh. "The total ailments to be covered under the scheme have been increased to 1,058 from the present 950," said Palle Raghunadha Reddy, minister of IT and public relations.

In other decisions, the cabinet decided to prepare guidelines to issue new pension cards to the beneficiaries as early as possible and to involve ministers in the process. The sand policy, which was drafted recently to benefit self-help group members, is to be amended in order to give higher compensation to the farmers who lose their land. Similarly, the cabinet decided to take the assistance of ICRISAT to provide inputs and technology to the farmers and also to prepare a detailed crop plan.
