Ever since K Chandrasekhar Rao has taken over as the first Chief Minster of the newly formed Telangana state, his government has undertaken various initiatives on the industrial development front.
Keeping in views that Telangana accounts for one-third of the pharma production in the country, the state government intends to lay emphasis on expansion of existing pharma, bio-tech and other industries. There are plans to promote a pharma city as one of the satellite townships, which will have government-run effluent treatment services to ensure complete pollution management.
Also, the state government intends to promote an industrial corridor between Hyderabad and Warangal to give a fillip to employment opportunities. The government is putting in place a special chasing cell attached to the chief minister's office to give single-window clearances to industrial projects.

Life Sciences - This category includes bulk drugs, formulations, vaccines, Nutraceuticals, and Biologicals; IT Hardware including bio-medical devices, Electronics, Cellular Communications, and FAB.

Industrial Townships: Mini-industrial Townships through PPPs will be set up in proximity to each Industrial Park.
