The Telangana Government is firmly committed to expanding IT sector in tier II cities. They focused on enhancing Hyderabad’s reputation as a burgeoning IT hub, attracting new-age companies to establish their presence and addressing concerns associated with rapid growth. To achieve these goals, the government pursued two key strategies.
Firstly, they aimed to develop plug-and-play infrastructure in smaller towns, enabling seamless setup and operation of IT companies. This initiative sought to create an environment conducive to the growth of the IT industry outside of major cities.
Secondly, the government implemented incentives to encourage the IT industry to expand to the northern and eastern parts of Hyderabad. By providing attractive benefits and support, they aimed to promote establishing IT facilities in these regions.
In addition to these measures, the Telangana Government successfully convinced renowned IT firms such as Cyient and Tech Mahindra to establish their facilities in Warangal, the second largest city in Telangana. This achievement demonstrated the government’s efforts to attract established companies to tier II cities and further strengthen the IT sector in the region.
