Hyderabad: KCR has recently stated that the urban growth of the state was 40.6% while the national average was 40% and the state was well on way to touch a growth of 50%. And there is no comparison in the growth rate with AP state.
AP with 22.5% urban growth has participated in a select gathering of senior journalists and made these statements. KCR said, “The Gross State Domestic Product of the state has above national average and precisely in this background it is 43% fitment in pay scales of government staff recently. The kitty permitted it.” I myself call up principal finance secretary V.Nagi Reddy at least thrice a week to find out the position.
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had assured a hike in devolution of central funds to the state.
