Notification for seperate HCs for AP, Telangana likely in two-three days


The notification regarding the bifurcation of the common High Court(of Hyderabad) between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is likely to be issued in the coming two to three days.

The separate high courts are expected to start functioning from April 7 which is the date of ‘Ugadi’ i.e. Telegu New Year.

This announcement was made after a delegation of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MPs met Union Law Minister Ravishankar Prasad in Delhi on Thursday.

The issue was taken up seriously to the Centre because it has been around 5 years after the two states bifurcated. The issue is reportedly one of the 52 issues pending with the Centre for the last four years.

Prasad assured the MPs that the Presidential notification will be issued within two days regarding the matter.

The apex court in November this year gave a nod to the Andhra Pradesh government to issue a notification in the matter by January 1, 2019, so that a separate high court can be set up in Amaravati. The SC bench also said that the High Court of Andhra Pradesh should start functioning in the new building by the earliest.

Also, there are plans for building India’s first ‘Justice City’ in Amaravati.

The Centre claimed that as Hyderabad was the common capital of both states for 10 years, a temporary High Court can be established in the city as there was enough infrastructure.

The Andhra Pradesh government, however, said that the temporary accommodation could also be arranged in its own upcoming capital.
