Kanigiri Municipality is the 6th largest municipality located on the south side of the Prakasam District in Andhra Pradesh. GIS based Master Plan was prepared for Kanigiri as per AMURT Scheme for which DT&CP has taken the initiative to prepare a revised Master Plan for the year 2041. The overall objective of the Kanigiri Master Plan is to create land use planning and enabling spatial framework in order to promote, guide and rationalise the development.

This plan will encourage existing economic activities to grow by providing adequate infrastructure in terms of the road network and preservation of natural features.
