This is part of the crowd funding initiative of the Government initiated by the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu ahead of the capital city foundation to be held on October 22, Dasera day.

Within a day, more than four lakh bricks have been subscribed to. Among the participants is an NRI from Singapore who has taken 108 bricks, and employees of the Capital Area Region Development Authority, among others.

For all those who subscribe to these digital bricks, the name of the subscriber will be registered. One can buy these bricks by paying online through debit, credit cards and netbanking facility.
