I am extremely grateful to the Government of Karnataka and to the leadership of the Congress party for appointing me Chairman of the prestigious Coastal Development Authority. I took charge on November 27th 2014.


The Coastal Development Authority has been assigned the task of preparing Preliminary Scheme Reports (PSR) and Detailed Project Reports (DPR) for possible developmental work that can and should be carried out for the betterment of the living conditions of citizens in the Coastal Districts of Karnataka (Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Uttara Kannada).


My vision is to accelerate the process of inclusive growth and of providing basic infrastructure that would improve the living standards of the coastal population. I will dedicate my time to travel extensively in these districts which I believe will enable me to interact with different sections of people and to see for myself what projects have been implemented and what in turn needs to be planned for our future. 


I look forward to hearing from the public at large on any advice they would like to give me on the work of the CDA. I promise to do my best and seek the blessing of our citizens along with the co-operation of elected representatives and implementing agencies in my endeavor.


                                                                                                           Yours Sincerely,


                                                                                                            Nivedith Alva
