Hyderabad has attracted two major investments in Genome Valley. Granules India is investing Rs 400 crore to set up a finished dosages unit while Laurus Labs is investing Rs 300 crore for a formulations manufacturing facility. Granules India will generate about 1,600 jobs.

Hyderabad: DESPITE the Covid-19 pandemic, Telangana's growth rate has outperformed the national growth rate and its share in the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has increased from 4.74 per cent in 2019-20 to 5 per cent this year, State Industry Minister KT Rama Rao said on Thursday.

Telangana's Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) during 2020-21 was Rs 9.78 lakh crore. The growth rate fell due to Covid pandemic by 1.26 per cent at constant prices (2011-12) but significantly better than India's projected GDP contraction at 8 per cent.

The resilience of Telangana's economy was aided by agriculture and allied sectors, which grew by 20.9 per cent, dwarfing the 3 per cent growth at national level, KTR, as the Minister is popularly known, said.

Releasing the annual report of the industries and commerce department, he said that in 2020-21, the State recorded a per capita income of Rs 2,27,145 compared to the national average of Rs 1,27,768

Telangana attracted major investments from companies such as MassMutual, Laxai Life Sciences, Agasthya Foods, Trouw Nutrition, Ester Filmtech and others despite the pandemic induced slowdown, KTR said.

In 2020-21, the Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC) developed 10 new industrial parks and allotted 810 acres of land to 453 industries with an expected investment of Rs 6,023 crore and potential employment of 7,623.

KTR said even since the launch of new industrial policy TS-iPASS, the state has attracted cumulative investments of Rs 2,14,951 crore, creating 15.6 lakh jobs.

He pointed out that Hyderabad ranked number one in the third and latest edition of fDI's Aerospace Cities of the Future 2020/21 rankings, under the category of 'Top 10 Aerospace Cities in Cost-Effectiveness' by fDI Intelligence.com, a division of Financial Times Group.
