Madhurawada on the Vizag outskirts seems headed to some good times. For long, planned as the IT hub in Vizag, this sleepy suburb made no headway. Even the buildings built to house IT offices remained unoccupied for want of companies willing to set up campuses. But post bifurcation of the state, the new AP government seems keen on giving it another shot.
In a first step, the government has delinked Madhrawada from the Greater Visakha admn and has formed an “Industrial Area Local Authority” which will now be under APIIC. This is intended to develop the area in a more planned manner, fit for the development of the IT-ITES sector.
