Following the approval by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, the State-owned coal mining company, The Singareni Collieries Company Limited has planned to invest about ₹333 crore towards housing for colliers in the mining belt.

N Sridhar, Chairman and Managing Director, in a statement said as per the assurance given by the Chief Minister to employees earlier, new and bigger quarters are being constructed. In the first phase, 1,478 quarters at a cost of ₹ 333 crore will be constructed. Of these, 352 will be completed by June and the rest will be completed by the year end.

It is proposed to develop housing colonies with each quarter featuring two bedrooms, hall and kitchen along with greenery outside.

These colonies will have wide roads, with quality drainage system, and plantation on either side of the roads and on dividers.
