Adding more info :

Today, Delhi: Central Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav revealed that the Andhra Pradesh government has not yet given the land required for the construction of the South Coast Railway Zone headquarters at Visakhapatnam. Are there any plans to officially launch South Coast Railway Zone? When did the construction of zonal headquarters start? When will it be finished? How many days were extended to complete the construction? How much funds have been allocated so far? How much did you use? He replied to a question asked by TDP MP
K. Rammohan Naidu in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday. “Detailed Project Report (DPR) for South Coast Railway Zone has been prepared. We have sanctioned the construction works of Zonal Headquarters at an estimated cost of Rs.106.89 crores. We have allocated Rs.10 crore for this purpose in the financial year 2023-24. East Coast Railway Zone has been entrusted with the responsibility of preparing layout plan for land survey, zone headquarters complex, residential colony and other structures. In the DPR, we have proposed to construct the headquarters of this zone on 52.2 acres of land in Mudasarlova. As the Andhra Pradesh government has taken railway land for the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS), the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation has to hand over 52.2 acres of land in Mudasarlova to the Andhra Pradesh government. Ashwini Vaishnav said that the government has yet to identify suitable land for this and hand it over to the railway department. The Minister of Railways revealed that the permissions have been granted in April 2023 for the construction of 3 and 4 lines between Visakhapatnam Junction-Gopalapatnam for a distance of 15.31 km at a cost of Rs.159.47 crores.

Re# 5903168-2              
Last year when the Railway Minister visited Visakhapatnam there were rumours from local BJP leaders that the foundation stone for new Rly zone will be laid in present DRM office in Visakhapatnam city and has identified about 10 acres where rlys quaters existed. There was also news that he inspected the site in his visit. in 2023-24 they have allocated 10crs for Rly zone headquaters and with this allocation as per the news now premilinary works will be carried out but land is not handed over.
They are just trying to keep the issue awake from the past 4 yrs after the DPR is prepared with boundaries and submitted to ministry. Every decision in Rlys is POLITICAL and who knows they
will issue a gazatte notification in Feb 2024 before election code and nothing in ground, anything can happen just like issuing notification for extention of VB in Madhya Pradesh on late Sunday evening.
