The Essel Group has displayed interest in setting up an integrated resort city in Andhra Pradesh and will be conducting a feasibility study for the project soon, Essel Group’s CEO Amit Goenka told chief minister Chandrababu Naidu at a meeting in Hyderabad on Friday. The Essel Group is currently working on developing Tirupati as smart city.
According to a release issued by the AP government, Goenka told Naidu that the integrated resort city concept has a great international market. “In Singapore, integrated resort cities have generated business worth $10 billion. This has created 22,000 direct jobs and 40,000 indirect jobs,” Goenka told the CM.
On his part, the CM invited Essel Group to invest in waste-to-energy projects in AP by participating in the bidding process for waste-to-energy plants to be set up in the state.
“You can give us suggestions on the best technologies in waste management. We are looking at waste to energy technologies, composting, construction of sanitary household, community latrines and debris management,” the chief minister said.
“We are also looking at working on smaller soild waste management plants,” Goenka added.
