Proposed five townships will be developed at Jawahar Nagar, Discovery City at Srinagar, an NRI Township at Budvel, Techno City at Tellapur and Medi City in Ameenpur. Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy had asked the HUDA officials to ensure proper planning of new township. He also pointed out the current situation of hi-tech cities.

On the proposed development of the Jawahar Nagar region, situated to the north of Hyderabad, the HUDA officials explained to the Chief Minister that the township would provide four lakh direct and indirect jobs and would attract 40 percent of the population from other areas after completion. The presence of reputed institutions such as BITS Pilani, lakes and resorts would be an added advantage, they said. The proposed township would come up on 2,118 hectares.
