VIJAYAWADA: Former AP High Court Judge V Eswaraiah,  who was appointed as Chairperson of AP Higher Education Regulatory and Monitoring Commission (APHERMC), took charge on Wednesday.
Addressing a press conference, he said the State government would constitute a search committee for other members of the commission soon, adding, once the commission is formed, a fresh set of guidelines for all higher educational institutions would be issued and closely monitored.
