Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh Legislature budget session will begin on Monday and will be held for the first time in the new state capital Amaravati. Governor E S L Narasimhan will address a joint session of the Legislative Council and the Assembly at 11.06 am.

The government is keen to wind it up by March 28 after getting the Appropriation Bill passed, ahead of the Telugu New Year's Day 'Ugadi' on March 29.

Andhra Pradesh government had to skip the winter session, which is usually held in December, as construction of the new Legislature building in Amaravati was not completed by the time. The new building, with hi-tech facilities, was finally inaugurated on March 2 in the state government's transitional headquarters premises at Velagapudi, where the Secretariat is located.

Since there is no Accommodation for the legislators in the new capital region, the government would pay them Rs 50,000 each as a special allowance, state Legislative Affairs Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu said.

The state's Budget for the year 2017-18 will be presented in the House on March 13. The agriculture budget will also be presented on the same day. The government is expected to introduce at least five Bills during the budget session.
