Hyderabad: In a bid to lure farmers and other land owners in the proposed capital area of Vijayawada to part with their land, the Andhra Pradesh government is toying with the idea of paying them an amount between Rs 15,000 to Rs 25,000 per acre per year until the land is developed and a portion of it is given back to them.

Addressing the media on Friday after a meeting of the cabinet sub-committee on land acquisition, municipal administration minister P Narayana said: "Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu is particular that the farmers and other land owners benefit when parting with their land for the construction of the new capital. Therefore, we are working out a proposal to pay between Rs 15,000 and Rs 25,000 per acre every year to them till they sell the developed land. We are also proposing that 50 per cent of the land given by the owner will be utilized to develop roads and other amenities while the remaining 50 per cent will be shared by the state and the owner in 60:40 ratio."

Narayana said the first phase of land pooling will be completed in the next six months and that the first phase of construction of the capital will be completed within one year.

Replying to a query on the possible threat to food security due to conversion of vast chunks of agricultural land for construction of the capital, agriculture minister P Pulla Rao said much of the land being used for the capital is at present unutilized.

"We will do it in such a manner that there is constitutional validity," Pulla Rao said.
