From the past several days, the agriculture land in several places in Kadapa district is slipping, forming huge pits. At some places the pits contain water, like in wells. The National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) officials, who have been examining the land, said that the pits are caused due to water seeping underneath the ground. The NGRI visited Ashoknagar colony in Velamavaripalli of Vempalli mandal, where a 20-ft deep pit has formed. The people are expressing fears over the formation of deep pits.
