Telangana government approved a proposal to reserve 80 per cent of semiskilled jobs and 60 per cent of skilled jobs for local people. This will apply to new industries coming up in the state.
The new proposals were contained in the draft policy tabled by IT and industries minister K.T. Rama Rao, which was discussed and approved at a Cabinet meeting chaired by chief minister K. Chandrashekar Rao.
Government also felt that the IT industry in Hyderabad should not be concentrated at one point but spread all over the city. It approved a GriD policy — Growth in Dispersion — to give incentives to IT companies if they set up in areas other than western Hyderabad.
To promote the use of electric vehicles to decrease air pollution, the Cabinet approved the TS Electronic Vehicle and Energy Storage Solution Policy which will provide incentives to e-vehicle manufacturers.
