HYDERABAD: Finding fault with the AP Reorganisation Act 2014, Telangana Education Minister G Jagadeeshwar Reddy said it would be better for the two states to bifurcate even the higher education department and not have common tests for admissions for 10 years as specified in the Act.

Responding to queries from mediapersons on the sidelines of declaration of Eamcet results here on Monday, he said, “The Act contains many provisions that are impossible to follow. This is one of them. Since every other department is bifurcated, it is better for two states to have their own tests and admission process.”

Acknowledging that it was too late to divide the education department and have separate entrance tests this year, he hinted that by next year Telangana will conduct its own tests. “I will take up the issue with the Cabinet. Since each state has its own understanding of improving standards of education, it is better to bifurcate the departments,” he added.

Meanwhile, when asked about the fee reimbursement of students of Seemandhra origin, he said, “It is too early to comment. ”
