Raipur: Looking to develop a new capital for the residual state of Andhra Pradesh post-bifurcation, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu will, Monday, visit Naya Raipur, the upcoming new capital of Chhattisgarh.
Developed by Naya Raipur Development Authority (NRDA), the new capital is a hi-tech city that is serving as the administrative capital of the state. The focus is also on developing clean industries.
A host of prestigious institutes like the Indian Institute of Management have also developed campuses in the new city.
Naya Raipur is the fourth planned capital city after Gandhinagar (Gujarat), Chandigarh (Punjab) and Bhubaneshwar (Orissa) and the first one to be developed in the 21st century.
Naidu will meet NRDA officials to gain first hand knowledge about the development of the city.

Following the bifurcation, Andhra Pradesh government has declared that the new capital city of the truncated state will be developed in the area around Vijayawada.
Earlier this month, a delegation of Vijayawada Development Committee had visited Naya Raipur.
