Urban population of Telangana may touch 50% by 2025, says Niti Aayog
NITI Aayog, which is considering cities and towns as growth engines, recently said urban places are in the forefront in providing livelihood to people, an official release said on Sunday.
Though the current urban local bodies constitute less than three per cent of the overall State's land mass, they contribute about two thirds of the overall gross State domestic product, it said.
Hyderabad city tops the list when it comes to indices of purchasing power, security, healthcare and cost of living, among others. The city is in the top 30 globally as far as economic competitiveness is concerned.
