Identified areas by DIC, suitable for development of new Industrial Parks:

1).Mominpet area of this district is suitable for establishing new parks as there is not much of green belt in this area and moreover it is a junction connecting sadashivpet (14 KMs) shankarpally(28KMs) and Vikarabad (24KMs) and in close proximity to already industrially developed areas like Sangareddy (42 KMs) and Pashamylaram IDA (40 KMs) and Patancheruvu (50Kms). The proposed 4 lane road from Vikarabad-Sadashivpet connecting to MumBai highway is a added advantage.

2). Areas of Pargi Mandal and 3).Kulkacherla Mandal are close to already industrialised areas Shadnagar (42 KMs), Kothur (60 KMs) and Balanagar (45 Kms) of Mahabubnagar District.

3).The is a good scope for establishing Mineral processing units Park in Peddemul mandal which can process or manufacture products from the Feldspar, Clay, quartz and Bentonite minerals.

Present challenges to overcome for industrialisation

Some Mandals of Vikarabad district like Nawabpet, Vikarabad, Pudur, Pargi are in the upper region of the Catchment area (Shamshabad, Chevalla, Shahbad and Moinabad) of major water bodies of Hyderabad like Gandipet, Osman sagar and Himayath sagar. The origin of river Musi also starts from here. Proper care should be taken keeping Encouraging unplanned industrialisation may affect the

Vikarabad is famous and has its identity for pleasant climate and cleaner environment especially Ananthagiri hills. This has to be preserved as it carries the old saying “Vikarabad ki hava (air), har marz (sickness) ki dawa (medicine)”. Non-polluting white and green category industries can only be encouraged in these areas. Other industries may be encouraged in areas nearer to neighbouring Sangareddy, Mahbubnagar districts and also mineral based industries in border areas to Karnataka State.

Lack of four lane road high speed connectivity to ORR and Hyderabad and the existing two lane road has too many turns and sharp curves.
