Telanganas Infrastructure Continues To Grow At An Impressive Rate

Amongst one of the fastest-growing states in India, Telangana has registered a substantial growth of 19.1 per cent of Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) valued at Rs 11.55 lakh crore. Telangana's nominal GSDP is 21.8 per cent higher in 2021-22 than the previous year, making it the sixth highest contributor to the national GDP. This astounding turnaround in GDP has resulted from the state's focus on Infrastructure development in Telangana. 

Infrastructure upgrades like well-connected roads, railways, and extensive fibre connectivity in all villages through T-fibre besides round-the-clock power supply and irrigation channels enable robust growth of the industry as well as agriculture. Infrastructure has been the focus of the Telangana government since its inception in 2014. 

Power: Within seven years, installed capacity has increased from 7,778 MW to 17,234 MW. Telangana is one of the leading states in per capita consumption. 24x7 power supply has ensured industries and agriculture sector flourish in Telangana with no obstacles and hindrances. 

Road network: The roads and buildings department is maintaining a total road network of 26,837 km in the state. The widening of single-lane roads to double-lane roads is being taken up for improving the connectivity between different mandals and district headquarters. 

Irrigation: Water from the Godavari and Krishna rivers, tributaries, tanks, and ponds has been the major source of irrigation in Telangana. There are 35,974 tanks serving an ayacut of 18.75 lakh acres, including 31,196 panchayat tanks serving an ayacut of 6.68 lakh acres. 

Mission Kakatiya: Telangana has taken up a massive programme of restoring all the 46,531 minor irrigation sources under the project Mission Kakatiya, in a decentralised manner through community involvement. The government is aiming to complete the restoration of all the tanks in the next five years at an estimated cost of Rs 20,000 crore.
