The government of Telangana would shortly be taking measures to fill up around 85,000 government jobs, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said on Tuesday.

“On this happy and auspicious occasion of the Independence Day, I would like to give good news to the unemployed youth. I am happy to announce that besides 27,660 appointments so far we made, measures are being taken to make appointments for another 84,876 jobs shortly,” Rao said.

The Chief Minister further said during the agitation for the separate Telangana state, it was promised that around one lakh jobs would be provided and recruitments of over 1.12 lakh are being made till now.

Rao also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Ivanka Trump, daughter of US President Donald Trump, would be attending the World Industrialists Forum, which is going to be held in Hyderabad from November 28 to 30, 2017.

The Forum would serve as platform for industrialists across the world for exchanging their views and provide help to the aspiring businessmen and entrepreneurs, he added.

He stated that Telangana, along with Andhra Pradesh, stood first in the rankings of Ease of Doing Business.

“So far, Rs.1,01,722 crore of investment has come to the state. 4,118 new industries were given industrial clearances and licenses providing employment to 2.90 lakh people.”

For farmers, the Chief Minister said, the state government would introduce a scheme from next year in which Rs.8,000 per acre would be given towards input costs for two years in a year.

“Farmers often end up in a trap of debt and are not able to pay back their loans. Therefore, the state government has decided to provide financial support to farmers for their agricultural inputs,” Rao said.

He informed that the government is also conducting an extensive land survey in the state.
