The government plans to divide Telangana into three clusters for industrial development; an urban cluster within the Outer Ring Road, a semi-urban cluster between the Outer Ring Road and RRR, and a rural cluster beyond the latter.

The completion of the RRR is expected to ease transportation and expedite development, particularly in the semi-urban zone.

The chief minister also urged the National Highway Authority of India to declare the RRR (South) portion as a national highway and formulate a land acquisition plan for the area. The government is prepared to bear any financial burden to complete the RRR.
