A dedicated monitoring cell was opened under Mission Bhagiratha to invite grievances and issues of supply of drinking water.
The aim of the cell is to get prepared to address water scarcity of summer. The cell constituted will record complaints and redress them without any delays.
The Mission Bhagiratha is a safe drinking water project that was launched for the state of Telangana. It aims to provide drinking water to every village and city household. It will supply clean drinking water from the rivers Krishna and Godavari.
Though the mission is named “Bhagirathi”, it does not denote the river. According to hindu culture Bhagiratha, is an Indian king who brought the holy river Ganga to the earth.
River Bhagirathi does not flow in Telangana. It flows through Uttarkhand state. It is the source stream of the Ganges.

The E-Commerce Giant Amazon Web Services has planned to invest 1.5 billion USD to set up two data centres in Hyderabad. The private firm will be helped by the Telangana Government under its Data Centre Policy
The private firm Amazon has set a target of 5 billion USD of global investments for the next four years. In 2019, the company opened 1.8 million feet office in Gachibowli, Hyderabad that can accommodate more than 15,000 employees. The office is the first largest building owned by Amazon outside US.
Data Centre Policy
The Government of Telangana has framed a dedicated policy for data centres. Under the policy, the government will provide incentives to the firms that set up data centres in the state.
Data Centres are dedicated spaces that are used to house computer systems that are used for data storage purposes. A data centre that is of the size of an industry (like that to be constructed in Hyderabad) will consume as much electricity as that of a small town.
