HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh government has moved the Supreme Court challenging the verdict of the Hyderabad High Court which declared that the AP state Council for Higher Education ceases to exist and that the council has no authority in respect of the institution mentioned under the Tenth schedule.
The High Court, in its verdict on petitions filed by the APSCHE and the Telangana government with regard to the dispute between both the states for utilisation of funds of the council, has held that the Telangana State Council for Higher Education (TSCHE) has power to operate bank accounts of the APSCHE in Hyderabad.
It also said that the APSCHE has no authority to function and administer an institution located in the state of Telangana. The assets and properties and funds whatever lying at the present location of the APSCHE belong to TSCHE.
The AP government, in its petition, urged the Apex Court to grant stay of the High Court order. It contended that the verdict is in violation of the constitution.
