Addressing a press conference in Hyderabad, 15th Finance Commission Chairman NK Singh pointed out at the concerns over the signs of stress over the state economy, despite its robustness.

The Chairman said the state performance is better in terms of growth in revenues when compared to that of some other states. 

Stating that the state has projected growth rate of up to 20 per cent in the years to come, the Chairman said Telangana state has to maintain its growth rate continuously over and above 13-14 per cent. He cautioned stating that failing in which the state will face disaster in many fronts.
