Justice Srikrishna Committee for consultations on the situation in Andhra Pradesh (Justice Srikrishna Committee report on Telangana)

Creation of a separate Telangana state with Hyderabad as its capital and keeping Andhra Pradesh united with constitutional and statutory measures for empowerment of Telangana region were among the six choices recommended by the Justice Srikrishna Committee. The recommendations were tantamount to nothing since the committee itself described four out of its six recommendations as unrealistic. Out of the remaining two, one was termed the second-best option. The formation of a separate state for Telangana (the penultimate best option provided by the panel) and the creation of a Telangana Regional Council -- TRC (the ultimate way forward according to the committee) both — one directly, the other indirectly — pull in the opposite direction of greater integration.
