Prior to this, the ministry had issued a notification for units including Yadadri-Bhongir requiring the acquisition of 208.6 hectares and the Andhole- Jogipet unit for 108.94 hectares.
Land acquisition is expected to be completed in six months. The State government has already agreed to bear 50 per cent of the land acquisition expenditure, besides extending all the support to expedite the exercise. Marking for the alignment of the RRR has been carried out and stones will be installed after identifying the exact road width using Differential Global Positioning System.
The Ministry is expected to issue two more notifications for taking up the land acquisition for the northern part of RRR, which covers the Sangareddy-Narsapur-Toopran-Gajwel-Yadadri-Choutuppal route as the ministry has already accorded National Highway status to the Northern part of RRR road, which is being constructed to cover 340 kms.
