The "Amaravati Sustainable Infrastructure and Institutional Development Project", as it has been known, was to be a greenfield project with the government of Andhra Pradesh issuing the order in December 2014 identifying the location of the capital city between Vijayawada and Guntur on the banks of the Krishna river.
