The polluting industries within the outer ring road limits in the city will be shifted outside ORR soon. State government issued guidelines to this effect Saturday. Shifting of non-polluting industries outside ORR was optional.

A meeting was held in March 2012 to discuss the shifting of polluting industries from Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation limits.

Per decisions taken in that meeting, the government issued guidelines for shifting the industries exactly after one year.

The government identified as many as 45 locations to develop new industrial areas outside ORR, which will be notified as industrial areas in master plan of Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority. New industrial locations outside ORR will be developed either by the AP Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) or by Private Developers into Industrial Estates in a phased manner.

Around all these new industrial zones, a buffer green belt zone at least 500 meters width will be developed to prevent future environmental problems.
