October 13 (TravelAndy): India’s Andhra Pradesh state has decided to develop its Nellore district as a coastal tourism circuit, said The Hindu.

The Nellore circuit is set to become the fifth one under this scheme. The Buddhist circuit, Himalayan circuit, Krishna Circuit and Northeast circuit are the other ones.
