Andhra Pradesh government will soon conduct a “Smart Pulse Survey” in two phases for collecting socio-economic data of 1.48 crore households in the state.

The first phase of the survey will be held from June 20 to 30 followed by the second phase from July 5 to 30, Information and Public Relations Minister Palle Raghunatha Reddy said.

The state Cabinet, which met here today under the chairmanship of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, decided to conduct the survey to determine the socio-economic status and collect all other relevant details of each household in the state, he said.

Revenue and civic staff would go to houses and collect the data. The citizens can also provide their details over the Internet as well, Reddy said.

The survey assumes significance in the light of Naidu’s announcement at the TDP’s annual conclave ‘Mahanadu’ on May 27 that his government has “no objection” to extending reservation for the economically-backward among the upper classes.

“We will extend reservation on the basis of the socio-economic survey,” he had announced.

The Cabinet also decided to fill 10,000 government posts immediately. While the state Police Recruitment Board would fill 6,000 vacancies in the department, the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) would fill 94 Group-1, 750 Group-2 and 1,000 Group-3 posts.

Another 1,000 posts of technicians, 422 posts in medical and health and 732 posts in other departments would also be filled through the APPSC, Reddy said.

The Cabinet also decided to distribute bicycles to 1.80 lakh girl students of class XI in the state, he said, adding, “This will check dropouts.”

    Economic changes during the 1980s[edit]This can be called the N. T. Rama Rao Era (1983–1989).An academic study of Andhra's economic activity using official data collected by the state government of Andhra Pradesh, Govt of India and World Bank reveal the following highlights.A Domestic Demand – Supply based economic policy instead of exports oriented policies during this pre-liberalization period resulted in Constant Currency (inflation adjusted) ulative growth rates of 151% in seven years, one and half times higher than the ulative growth rate of the 30 years earlier, and 25% higher than the ulative growth rates of 20 years that followed.[13]Education reforms, local government empowerment, irrigation and electricity improvements, corruption controls of this period resulted in ulative per capita income growth rates (corrected to inflation and potion growth) ten times the growth rates for the first 30 years and three times the rates of the 20 years that followed. On average a typical Telugu citizen was 3000% more productive in improving his/her economic condition than in the 30 years earlier and 450% more productive than the 20 years that followed.Distributional and social indicators (rural education 51%, child labor (−60%), malnutrition (−81%), infant mortality (−37%), female education (77%)) improved at rates that are yet to be repeated.[14]Fiscal Management Indices (deficit,foreign debt, debt servicing levels etc.) were at their best levels compared to the era the followed when central government allowed higher deficit targets and allowed foreign borrowing directly from world bank as a part of the liberalisation regime.
