Three years old Telangana sees positive growth

Telangana, the 29th and the youngest state in India, celebrated its third formation dayon 2 June, 2017. The state stood first in terms of revenue growth rate, recording a 17.82 percent growth in the FY17.

The overall rank of the state in terms of project investment, which jumped from 11th to 9th in March 2016, remained at that level   in March 2017, due to increased investments announced by private companies.

The share of private sector investment increased almost fourfold to Rs 27,253.84 crore in FY17 from Rs 7,081.11 crore in FY16. While investments by foreign companies increased from Rs 1,767 crore in FY16 to Rs 11,337.64 crore in FY17, that of the Indian private sector moved up from Rs 5,314 crore in FY16 to Rs 15,916 crore in FY17.

To meet the increased demand for water from the Farm sector, the state announced 23 new irrigation projects worth Rs 21,449.86 crore in FY17. This was on top of the 12 projects worth Rs 6,507.48 crore announced in FY16.
