HyderabadThe Andhra Pradesh government on Wednesday declared 234 mandals in nine districts of the state as drought-hit in 2012, to enable farmers avail credit facilities and take up relief operations.

The drought-hit mandals district-wise are Anantapur (63), Kadapa (43), Kurnool (36), Prakasam (35), Chittoor (28), Nalgonda (11), Nellore (9), Mahabubnagar (5) and Guntur (4).

The announcement was made following proposals received from district collectors and their perusal by the senior officials, official sources said.

“The concerned district collectors are requested to take further action and notify specific mandals or areas in the mandal in the district gazette, to enable farmers avail credit facilities and take up relief operations,” a Government Order (GO) issued on Wednesday said.
