Here is a list of the important highlights of the Telangana Bill. Draft of the bill has been cleared by the Union Cabinet and the bill is likely to tabled on 12th February in Rajya Sabha:
#The bill when passed will bifurcate Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Seemandhra.
#Hyderabad will be the joint capital for Telangana and Seemandhra. Demands from some sections to make Hyderabad a union territory have been rejected.
# Centre has agreed to provide special packages for backward area. The quantum of the package will be decided by the 14th finance commission later.
# The demand of certain Seemandhra leaders to make Hyderabad a Union Territory have been rejected due to fear of backlash from Telangana supporters. BJP is also opposed to any such move.
