Telangana?” title=”Budget 2024: Will Nirmala give the grants requested by Telangana?” class=”lozad”>
Budget 2024: Congress party came to power after defeating Bharat Rashtra Samithi. But due to the behavior of the previous government, most of the grants did not come from the Centre. In this context, the Congress government wants a helping hand from the Center keeping in view the financial situation of the state. The Congress government wants to adopt a searching attitude towards them, unlike the approach taken against the Bharatiya Rashtra Samithi in the past. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is expecting more funds than possible in the budget to be presented on Thursday. But what the Center will introduce on February 1 is the interim budget. However, the state government wants much more funds. Unlike the state government of India in the past, the current Congress leaders report work demands directly to the central government. After becoming Chief Minister, Revanth Reddy directly went to Delhi and met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Ministers. He placed in front of him the necessary funds, other grants and allotment of employees. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi has heard all the demands made by Revanth Reddy. It seems that there is a possibility of positive allocations for the state in this budget. Moreover, this year being an election year.. in the background of BJP hoping to win more seats in the southern states.. it seems that there is a possibility of showering blessings on Telangana.
What are the demands of the state government?
After the formation of Telangana, no single project has been given national status till now. In this context, the state government has requested the Center to give national status to the Palamuru Ranga Reddy upliftment scheme. But after 2014, no national status was given to any project in the country. It seems that the center has assured that 60% funds will be given under other schemes in view of the priority of the Palamuru Rangareddy Lift Scheme. The government wants to give the funds allocated by the central government under the backward areas development fund for the development of backward districts as per the guarantees given in the Partition Act. The state government recently asked the Center to give 450 crores to the nine old joint districts of the state at the rate of 50 crores each. No, it wants to give 1800 crore grants for three years from 2021 to 2022 and from 2023 to 24. The Center has sanctioned a mega leather park for Nellore district when it was in the united Andhra Pradesh… Leather parks should be set up in Karimnagar and Janagama districts in Telangana state too… The state government is requesting that the necessary land allocations be made. As part of the Prime Minister's Mitra scheme, Mega Textile Park in Warangal has been given brown field status and it wants to be given green field status. The state government is reminding the center that if green field status is given, funds of 300 crore rupees will come.. And the state wants to give green flag to the new industrial corridor from Hyderabad to Vijayawada via Miryalaguda. Moreover, the state wants to grant final permissions to the Hyderabad and Nagpur industrial corridors as well. The state is reporting to the Center that it will get Rs 2,300 crore if the final approvals are granted.
The 15th Finance Commission has recommended to give 2,233.54 crores to the newly formed state.. The state wants the funds to be released to them immediately. The National Institute of Design Center was sanctioned to Hyderabad during the UP regime… the then Minister Anand Sharma laid the foundation stone for these works… after the division of the state it was moved to Vijayawada… the state wants to set it up here in view of the importance of the city of Hyderabad. If a National Handloom Technical Center is granted to Telangana, the lives of the weavers can be enlightened here. The state wants the center to take steps in that direction. Telangana wants to give 408 crores from the state government after the Andhra Pradesh government used the Raj Bhavan, High Court, Lokayukta and SHRC buildings in Hyderabad after the division of Andhra Pradesh. The state is asking the Center to allocate 88 crores to strengthen the Anti-Narcotics Bureau, which was set up to eradicate the drug culture in the state, and 90 crores each to the Telangana Cyber Security Bureau, which was set up to reduce cyber crimes. It has been decided to build Indiramma houses for the poor in the state. For this, the state is requesting the center to give permission to build these houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Besides, the state government is also asking the center to provide funds for the second phase of metro rail works. The state government is asking the center to grant funds to the city of Hyderabad, which has the highest growth rate in the country. And this year being an election year, it will be known in a few hours what kind of boons Nirmala Sitharaman will shower on Telangana in view of the fact that BJP is expected to get more MP seats from the southern states as well.
