Osmania  University has played an important role in shaping Telangana State's social, cultural, economic and political development since its inception. In spite of scholarly, intellectual and literary flourish, there is conspicuous absence of a credible and effective platform to facilitate dialogue, productive interaction and exchange among the plethora of initiatives undertaken in Telangana State.  To address, this Osmania University proposes to establish a Centre for Telangana Studies as a flagship program during the centenary year that will be headed by a Centenary Chair and will have the mandate to collect and analyse information pertaining to societal issues and their mitigation from all the 31 districts.
