DMPQ Premium-“Industrial development in Andhra pradesh has many challenges.” Explain.

. Industrial growth in Andhra Pradesh stands challenged on multiple counts. In the most industrialised Hyderabad and its surrounding region, the simmering Telangana movement in the recent times has had a visible impact. This, in combination with issues of land shortage and power crisis, has compounded problems.

Shortage of power has emerged as the single biggest hurdle to industry. According to the Federation of Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FAPCCI), power cuts today amount to 70 per cent in the industrial sector, on a weekly basis. This includes a three-day power holiday. The tariff has also been hiked after several years.

Being agriculture-rich, the availability of land for industrial growth is limited in most districts, except the north coast districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam. In these regions, a series of environmental issues have put the brakes on projects, especially power- and mineral- based ones.
