State government of Telangana is ready to make a big announcement for the development of backward communities. The new scheme scheduled to be announced on 27 April 2021 is "KCR Apathbandhu" scheme.

Officials claim that chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had come with this idea to correspond with the completion of two decades of TRS; political parties feel that it is an eye on the following local body elections like MPTC, ZPTC, and the municipal corporation elections of Warangal and Khammam that are due to take place soon. It is important to mention here that the backward community constitutes more than 50% of the population of the Telangana State. 

Officials said that the state government would enhance skill development for self-employment under this scheme and distribute sewing machines to women and ambulances to youth. To provide easy access to quality education, most BC residential schools would also be upgraded as Junior colleges.

 The government has sanctioned Rs 5500 crore for backward community welfare in the 2021-22 financial year, and a majority of the fund would utilize for this scheme. All the castes that come under the backward community would get the benefit under this scheme. 

An amount of Rs 100 crore will be used to develop skills among poor women in the backward community.  Officials said that additional Rs 300 crore would be used to provide train bike & car mechanic works for unemployed youths in present financial year. Exclusive coaching centres for backward class students who are preparing for competitive exams would be established under the new scheme in all identified districts.

Corporate level education facilities would be provided from first standard to Intermediate level and all existing residential educational institutions would be improved accordingly.
