Warangal: Notwithstanding the huge potential to emerge as a major industrial centre in Telangana, Warangal has remained where it was a few decades ago. The stunted 'industrial' growth left people's aspirations unaccomplished. Perhaps, people in the region did not long for anything as much as they desired, especially for the revival of the Azamjahi Mills and the establishment of a railway coach factory. Decades have elapsed. People are still dreaming for them.

They remain a mirage.Change in political landscape post-bifurcation appears that there is lot in store for Warangal district on the industrial development front. Going by the government promises, one would expect many development activities are set to takeoff in the near future.

The recent aerial survey conducted by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao endorses the government’s keenness to propel Warangal to places people never visualised. The government is set to roll out a few plans for the district, such as a 65-km industrial corridor between Warangal and Hyderabad, an IT Park, an integrated textile park and ancillary industrial units, besides an outer ring road. A survey has been undertaken by the administration. Authorities have identified about 65,000 acres, categorised into four – even, uneven, rocky and hilly areas, for setting up industries.

According to Collector G Kishan, 56 acres in Kazipet of the Endowments department is ready for the proposed wagon factory. Availability of land will certainly be a big constraint for the proposed Warangal-Hyderabad industrial corridor. Speaking to The Hans India District Industries General Manager Y. Hrishikesh said 6,000 acres was available for allocation to entrepreneurs.

Another 10,000 acres has been exclusively earmarked for industrialists who are willing to set up solar units. ‘Once the projects take shape, it would be a tremendous boost for the manpower in the region, specially, for those who migrated to Surat, Bhiwandi and other places in pursuit of livelihood,’ Hrishikesh said.
