Of them, there are 23 in Hyderabad and surrounding areas and 33 in rural areas. In the integrated Andhra Pradesh, as many as 109 industrial estates were developed in 40 years. In separate Telangana state, a total of 56 industrial parks were set up.

With the new slogan – Integrated, Inclusive and Balanced development, the state government is embarking on industrial development in the state. It is expected to create more employment for the rural youth besides increasing exports. There were some MSMEs already operating in the districts.
