Đeneral Janković or Hani i Elezit (Albanian: Hani i Elezit; Serbian: Ђенерал Јанковић, Đeneral Janković) is a town and municipality in southern Kosovo,[a] near the border with the Republic of Macedonia. It is one of the new formed municipalities formed in September 2005. It was previously part of the Kačanik municipality. Đeneral Janković is located in the south-eastern part of Kosovo. The municipality covers an area of 82.9 km2 (32 sq mi). It borders the Kačanik municipality to the north and Skopje municipality of the Republic of Macedonia to the south. It was named after Serbian general Božidar Janković.
The municipality has a total of 250 family shops and small businesses registered. The economy of Đeneral Janković is mainly based on three companies/enterprises: Sharr-Çimentorja (cement factory), Kosovaplast (plastic factory), and Salonit (roof covers factory). All the aforementioned were part of the Šar Combinate before 1989. Sharr-Çimentorja employs 770 people, Salonit employs 280 employees, and Kosovaplast has 100 employees.
Cafes, restaurants and retail trade are also vibrant. Private shops and other commercial businesses operating in the Pilot Municipal Unit are mostly family-operated enterprises, with approximately 200 employees. Nevertheless, a considerable part of population works in the agriculture sector or remains unemployed.
There is one hospital providing primary health care. There are two doctors, one dentist, one lab technician and nine nurses. The hospital provides services until late afternoon, while emergency cases are treated by the hospital in Kačanik due to the lack of staff in Đeneral Janković. The Municipal Unit is making efforts to hire two additional doctors to increase efficiency, but this process is very slow due to the lack of vacant positions in the staffing table.
There are three primary schools (1,673 pupils) located in Đeneral Janković town and the villages of Paljivodenica and Gorance. There is a secondary school located in Đeneral Janković town with a total of 416 pupils.
