Hyderabad, The Final Day As The Capital Of Andhra!

Hyderabad, The Final Day As The Capital Of Andhra!

Hyderabad: As the 10-year deadline for Hyderabad’s role as the shared capital of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana draws to a close, so does the bond between the city and its people. Tomorrow, on June 2, 2024, Hyderabad will no longer serve as the joint capital for Andhra Pradesh, leading to the relocation of all offices to their respective home states.

According to the AP Bifurcation Act, Hyderabad was slated to be the joint capital for 10 years starting from 2014. Nevertheless, the then Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu expedited the relocation of numerous AP government offices from Hyderabad to Andhra Pradesh within just one year of the Act’s passage.

By 2016, nearly 90 percent of the AP government offices had already transitioned to Amaravati and other towns within the state. Nonetheless, it’s worth noting that around 10 percent of these offices have continued their operations from Hyderabad, a fact that may not be widely known among citizens in Andhra Pradesh.

The Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC) marked the final office relocation from Telangana to Andhra Pradesh. Just a week before this year’s June 2 deadline, the office was moved to Kurnool in response to a notice from the Telangana government mandating the evacuation of all buildings.

Additionally, Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy issued orders for the relocation of the APERC office to Kurnool, a city he had earmarked as the Judiciary Capital of Andhra Pradesh.
