HYDERABAD: The Union Home ministry is scheduled to conduct three crucial meetings this week to resolve disputes between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states over sharing of assets and institutions.

There is no clarity in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 on the headquarters assets of the ninth schedule institutions. The Act says that the managing director’s office can be divided between the successor states.
However, some institutions have common facilities which were created with the funds of combined Andhra state.

For example, RTC has MD office and also bus building unit.  AP wants share in bus building unit apart from share from managing director’s office, which is being objected by Telangana.  

As there is no clarity in the AP Reorganisation Act over this, joint secretary of the Union home ministry will conduct a meeting in Delhi on January 17.

K Ramakrishna Rao (principal finance secretary) and L Premachandra will represent TS and Andhra respectively at the meeting .

Meanwhile, additional secretary in the Union home ministry  Jayadeep Goel will conduct another meeting on the tenth schedule institutions in Delhi on January 13. According to sources, Kutumbarao and Balasubrahmanyam from Andhra and Rajiv Sharma and Advocate General from Telangana will attend the meeting.

Meanwhile, the home secretary himself will conduct a meeting on the dispute between Andhra and TS over AP Bhavan building and land in Delhi on January 12. Chief secretaries of both the states will attend this meeting.

If the chief secretaries are busy, the home secretary will conduct a video conference with them from Delhi over the issue, sources said.
