Telangana planned development
The Government of Telangana is forging ahead for the realisation of ‘Bangaru Telangana’ by balancing the wheels of development through strengthening of service delivery, accountability, and demand in rural areas. The Government aims to leverage technology in building strong supervision and citizen accountability measures in light of the Telangana Panchayat Raj Act, 2018.
Planning department mainly deals with formulation of annual plans and five year plans, preparation of state plan budget and socio-economic survey report, reviewing and monitoring of plan schemes, evaluation of important schemes/ programmes .The department also implements programmes like special development fund for welfare and developmental activities, constituency development programme (MLAs/MLCs), district innovation fund under 13th finance commission grants monitoring of flagship programmes of the Government of India, Twenty Point Programme, MPLAD, Integrated Action Plan for Left Wing Extremism districts.
Pattana Pragathi was launched by the Government in February 2020 to provide a strong foundation for better standards of living for the urban population, to make urban areas clean and green, and to provide better services to the urban public at large.
Pattana Pragathi was executed in three phases— the first of which focussed on developing urban utility infrastructure, the second on sanitation, and the third on both urban utility infrastructure as well as sanitation.
Powered by a strong leadership and armed with focused policies, the state is on the move steadily with a determination for holistic development of the region.
The state believes that urban development is the social, cultural, economic and physical development of cities, as well as the underlying causes of these processes. Cities and their development is a central topic in human geography, and the study of cities makes up the sub-discipline of city geography or urbanism. Physical development of cities especially infrastructure, real estate and affordable housing is on the top agenda of the state leadership.

Problems In Development:-
One of the major challenges faced by Telanganais that of sharing power and water resources.Telangana has two major rivers — Krishna and Godavari.
68.5 per cent catchment area of the Krishna river and 60 per cent of Godavari lie in Telangana. Major share of the water from these rivers is pumped into Rayalseema leading to shortage of water for irrigation in the Telangana belt. If a major share is provided to Telangana, every village can be assured of drinking water and irrigation facilities
Despite Hyderabad being a hub for education, the people of Telangana feel that they have been given a raw deal.
Late Professor Jayashankar, who was the vice chancellor of the Kakatiya University, had in a paper stated that it was assured at the time Andhra Pradesh was formed that the levels of disparity in the field of education would be removed entirely.
today, the literacy rate in Telangana continues to be the lowest.
While Hyderabad has boomed with development, the same cannot be said about the rest of Telangana. The focus has been more towards Kadapa, Vishakapatanam, Vijaywada and Nellore. There were many industries that were set up during the period of the Nizam, but over the years, people allege, successive governments closed all of them down one by one.
Salaried workers make up the largest worker category in urban areas, at 55.1%, and account for 10.4% of rural workers in the state. Data from PLFS 2019-20 suggests that the average salaried person earns 58.3% more in urban areas than in rural areas, with women in urban areas earning more than double their rural counterparts in a month.
