The city of Hyderabad with an area of 260 sq. km posits in the center of Telangana districts is hurting the development of Telangana. Today Hyderabad influence permeates another 200 km radius directly or indirectly and geographically it is eclipsing almost all the districts of Telangana, except Adilabad and Khammam. With the advent of four-lane highways the distance to northern and southern districts has been drastically cut down. Several nearby mid-size towns such as Sangareddy, Siddipet, Kamareddy, Vikarabad, Shadnagar and Suryapet more or less have become satellite towns and have the potential to develop the region.
In case an investor wants to start an industry, he or she would prefer Hyderabad in lieu of any Telangana district lessening the chances of industrialization of the region, unless solid connectivity and necessary infrastructure is in place. It is same to other sectors as well – education and health – due to geographical exigencies. The development of the region needs special kind of debate due to the peculiar geographical location of Hyderabad which dominates Telangana and is one of the major factors for the region’s ‘backwardness.’
