Inclusive growth is the key focus for overall development as highlighted in the 11th Plan and also as envisaged in the 12th Plan discussions. The economy has done well on the growth path during the 11th Plan period, but not so well on the inclusion front. It is suggested that in order to make planning more inclusive, it is important to have State level and district level planning. District planning is the key ingredient towards inclusive growth and development. CII has taken the agenda of district planning in various states. Envisaging this approach, District Development Plan for Khammam has been conceived and strengthened through this study report.
