Industrialisation to stoke urbanisation in A.P.
Thrust on industrialisation of coastal districts is set to result in a spurt in urbanisation over the medium to long term.

By virtue of their location in the East Coast Economic Corridor (the region between Chennai and Kolkata) and the kind of industrial expansion plans governments have for them, coastal Andhra Pradesh is set to be more urbanised in about two decades.

According to a study conducted by a team of experts led by N. Sridharan, Director of School of Planning and Architecture (of Union Ministry of Human Resources Development), the total population of Visakhapatnam, East Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam and Nellore districts will be around 31 million by 2031 of which 47 per cent will be urban, up 14 per cent from 33 per cent in 2011.

Visakhapatnam and Nellore have high potential for industrialisation and with it urbanisation, thanks to the infrastructure facilities. Following closely are Guntur, Krishna and East Godavari districts.

Among them, Visakhapatnam has highest percentage of urban population at 47.5 followed by Krishna with 41 per cent, Guntur (33.9), Nellore (29.1) and East Godavari (25.5). The lowest industrially developed districts, West Godavari, Srikakulam and Prakasam, have an urban population of 20.5 per cent, 16.2 per cent and 19.5 per cent respectively.
