ANDHRA PRADESH & TELANGANA AT A GLANCE
1. History of Andhra Pradesh & Telangana
             Andhra Pradesh is one of the first states in India which was formed only on the linguistic basis. After India's independence the Telugu-speaking people were distributed in about 21 districts. Out of them 9 were in the Nizam's Dominions and 12 in the Madras Presidency. On October 1, 1953, 11 districts of the Madras State were consolidated to form a new Andhra State with Kurnool as capital. Later, on November 1, 1956 the State Reorganization Commission recommended to enlarge the Andhra State by adding nine districts which were in the Nizam's Dominion. The city of Hyderabad, became the capital of the enlarged Andhra Pradesh.

          On 2 June 2014, Telangana became the 29th state of India. And on 11th October, 2016 the Govt. of Telangana has divided the existing 10 districts to form 31 new districts.
