Hyderabad: The demands for grants by various departments were passed by Telangana Assembly on Sunday after elaborate discussions for nearly ten hours. The subjects include Excise, Revenue, Agriculture, Home, Commercial Taxes and Cooperation. Earlier in the day, Excise Minister T Padma Rao Goud informed members that the number of retail shops that were granted license this year was less than the previous year. Last year, there were 2,216 shops, but this time there are 2,142, he added.

He said that there were 726 bars last year and this year it was 804. Regarding belt shops, he said that 2,32,325 cases were booked and 2,321 people arrested, apart from the seizure of 26,300 litre liquor. Transport Minister P Mahender Reddy said the government was trying hard to make RTC earn profits. "We have allotted Rs 40 crore for the purchase of 150 buses and these would be operated in long routes where there is scope for better revenue, he said adding, “We will try to bring RTC into profits.

We have a firm belief that we will do it." Deputy Chief Minister Md Mahmood Ali said government had passed strict orders asking VROs to stay put in villages for five days in a week. "If they do not follow this, they will be suspended," he said. He said the government had started making revenue records available online through the Maa Bhoomi website, where people can check details about their land.
