Revenues from Hyderabad: Fact and fiction

The Sri Krishna Committee did not take any notice of the revenue bases of either Telangana, coastal Andhra, Rayalaseema or Hyderabad. However, Mr Rosaiah, as finance minister, presented to the Assembly a set of figures in answer to a member’s question. Here he devised a new formula and invented a “Headquarters” category apart from Telangana, Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra. This “Headquarters” is presumably Hyderabad City and the revenues that occur to the state government and not those based on the three regions. And this is the bone over which the fight for Hyderabad revenues is all about.

For “Headquarters” revenues, he showed an annual average (2003-06) revenue of Rs 7,704 crore. This works out to 37 per cent out of total state’s revenue.
