Telangana is the youngest of India’s 29 states, formed in June 2014 from the norther part of Andhra Pradesh.  It is the 12th largest state and the 12th most populated state.  Shortly after its formation it won the 2016 Promising State of the Year Award by CNBC in recognition of its commitment and dedication towards the development of Telangana and its innovative policies with respect to the information technology, agriculture, irrigation and industrial sectors.  Telangana is the poster child for the implementation of the Prime Minister’s Digital India strategy – a strategy essential to Telangana’s vision of a vibrant and inclusive society.  K.T. Rama Rao will describe several of the innovative programs that are making Telangana a leader in harnessing the power of technology for its citizens such as:

  • T-Hub, a center that nurtures young dynamic entrepreneurs,
  • TASK, the Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge that is preparing individuals with the skills need to meet the demands of Telangana’s industries,
  • KTR, a program to make Hyderabad India’s first Wi-fi enabled city with the goal of increasing tourism and putting information at the fingertips of its citizens,
  • Telangana’s newest initiative to harness big data technology.
