Telangana will soon have a Rail, Metro Coach Factory set up in the borders of Sangareddy and Rangareddy district. Minister for Industries KT Rama Rao attended MoU Signing Ceremony with Medha Servo Drives at Hyderabad here on Friday.
Medha Servo Drives which is the largest Propulsion equipment supplier to Indian Railways will be setting up Rail, Metro Coach Factory with an estimated investment of Rs 800 Crores. The factory will create more than 2000 direct and indirect employment opportunities in the state.
Talking at the event, KT Rama Rao said, “ Though Telangana was promised a Rail Coach Factory within six months of its formation, in the AP State Reorganization Act 2014, it has never become a reality in spite of frequent appeals to the central government.”
