Which state stood first in the implementation of the Shyama Prasad Mukherji Rurban Mission (SPMRM)?

A. Assam

B. Bihar

C. Telangana

D. Uttar Pradesh

Answer: Telangana

Explanation:

Telangana stood first in the implementation of the Shyama Prasad Mukherji Rurban Mission (SPMRM) that was launched four years ago to stimulate local economic development, enhance basic services and create well-planned clusters.

Sangareddy and Kamareddy districts stood in the first two positions among the 300 clusters across the country where the programme was being implemented.

Tamil Nadu and Gujarat took the second and third positions respectively.

In Telangana, in as many as 17 clusters (12 non-tribal and five tribal), the programme was being implemented at an estimated cost of ₹1,885.12 crore.

The provision of urban infrastructure in rural areas is the main purpose of the Rurban Mission, with Telangana having the highest points due to the outstanding performance of Panchayat Raj and rural development.
