AP to get “Vision” with Rs 9 cr.


Andhra Pradesh government is spending about Rs 9 cr. to get “Vision -2029”  document prepared by private consultants. This vision is meant to make Andhra state Swarnandhra. Even though the state has highly dedicated and efficient officers, Organizations and universities , chief minister Naidu loves to rely on private consultants. The Swarnandhra Vision-2029 document is also being prepared  by some  private consultants like Amarvathi Master Plan.

An amount of Rs 3 crore was sanctioned to AP State Development Planning Society(APSDPS), to make payments to these consultants, who are working on preparation of vision document.

Apart from this, the State government sanctioned an amount of Rs 50 lakh towards meeting expenses for hiring of research associates, professionals and other expenses relating to preparation of the Swarnandhra Vision-2029 document.

The planning department has sought another Rs 6 crore to make further payment to the consultants.

“The AP government has a vision to be among the three best States in the country by 2022 and to achieve the status of a developed State by 2029. Towards this, it is in the process of drafting a Swarnandhra Vision 2029 document, laying down the vision, road-map and investment plan for the State,”a  GO issued in this connection said.

Many in the government aver that for a state, which has huge revenue shortfall, splurging on  private consultants is an avoidable expenditure.
