Industry[edit]

Much of the development is halted because of the factors such as the location of town, which is nearer to the state of Karnataka and low availability of water. Primary source of income for people is through weaving sarees. Bullion Merchant association is one of the most prominent sectors in the Chamber of Commerce in Narayanpet. Making pure gold jewellery has been one of the main occupations of the town for last two centuries. Narayanpet gold is regarded as the purest serving within the locality and visitors from various places around the vicinity of town tend to purchase ornaments. Because of scarcity of water (no river nearby but 45 km krishna) and bad transportation (no railway station but 30 km saidapur called Narayanpet road railway station) there is no major industry here except sarees and jewellery. Young generation is leaving the town in search of better opportunities in cities like Hyderabad, Bombay. Thousands of people have migrated to Pune, Mumbai, Bhiwandi, Solapur in Maharashtra. A regular APSTRC bus Runs B/W Mumbai and Narayanapet.

Narayanpet Railway Station in Making - New Railway Line Proposal[edit]

Recently South Central Railway has conducted a survey for the proposed railway line. However this proposal which has been floating since past 55 years, there is no political will for the execution. There are also widespread allegations of major kickbacks and corruption, this is causing a lot of anger in the youth of Narayanpet.

Proposed Railway line is going to connect Vikarabad and Krishna through Narayanpet.
