Andhra Pradesh Passes a Bill to Repeal ‘3 Capitals’ ActAndhra Pradesh Council clears '3 capitals' repeal BillThe Andhra Pradesh government passed a Bill to repeal the AP Decentralisation and Inclusive Development of All Regions Act and the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) Repeal Act of 2020.

  • The Bill was moved by Finance and Legislative Affairs Minister Buggana Rajendranath Reddy
  • The repeal of the two Acts came after the various petitions filed by the farmers in the State’s High Court.

Background:
i.Andhra Pradesh had notified the AP Decentralisation and Inclusive Development of All Regions Act, 2020, and the AP Capital Region Development Authority (Repeal) Act, 2020 in July 2020 to introduce 3 Capitals for the state.

  • Amaravati – legislative capital.
  • Visakhapatnam – executive capital.
  • Kurnool – judicial capital.

ii.The current government has decided to reverse the previous government’s decision to have an ambitious world-class capital city at Amaravati, which is located between Vijayawada and Guntur.
iii.Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister has announced to re-introduce a similar law, for the formation of 3-capitals, by making necessary changes to the old one.
3-Capitals:
i.Building one mega capital might neglect other parts of the state while ‘3 capitals’ ensure equal development of different regions of the state.
ii.B N Srikrishna and K Sivaramakrishnan Committees appointed by the Government of India, Ministry of Home Affairs under section 6 of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 has made clear that Decentralisation must be the central theme for setting up capital of a state.
Challenges of ‘3-Capitals’:
