A new 'Artificial Intelligence City' (AI City) is set to be established in Hyderabad, making it the first and largest of its kind in India. The Telangana Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TGIIC) officials have identified 200 acres of land in Maheshwaram, Serilingampally, Chevella, and Ibrahimpatnam mandals along the Outer Ring Road for the project. Additionally, Hyderabad will soon host the state's first Skill University, with land parcels identified for the purpose in the same locations. The state government is expected to approve these land allotments after the election code ends in June, in the next cabinet meeting. The foundation for AI City and Skill University will be laid by Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy before the "Global AI Summit" scheduled for July. The AI City is aimed to promote the AI ecosystem in the country and is expected to be larger than the one announced by the Uttar Pradesh government in Lucknow in December 2023, which is yet to take off.

Hyderabad's AI City will be completed by 2028, covering 200 acres, five times larger than Lucknow's AI City. IT and Industries Minister, D Sridhar Babu, is optimistic about making Hyderabad the "AI capital of India" with this development. At a meeting of the Telangana Facility Manager Council, he expressed his earnest desire to see Hyderabad emerge as an AI City, a hub for AI research and activity. To achieve this goal, officials from higher education, labor, IT, and technical departments will tour other states to study the functioning of skill universities. These officials have been directed to replicate the best practices from Gujarat, Haryana, Rajasthan, Odisha, and Andhra Pradesh in setting up a skill university in Telangana.
