The Telangana and Andhra Pradesh governments on Tuesday decided to constitute an eight-member committee to decide on sharing of data and computers with regard to EAMCET counselling, besides allocation of staff and hall.

An agreement to this effect was arrived at between Telangana Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari and AP Education Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao, after their meeting with Governor E S L Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan in the morning. The Governor advised them to thrash out differences between the Education Departments of both the States through negotiations.

However, Srihari refused to give AP officials working in Higher Education Council to their home State as bifurcation was yet to be completed. He said it was not possible to shift the AP officials at this stage. Ganta said a meeting of two Chief Ministers is likely to address the issues amicably followed by another round of meeting by both of them and the officials.

Srihari offered to take a decision in the committee on the appeals of sharing of computers, data and allocation of the staff for counseling. It was also decided in the meeting to resolve the issues like sharing of officials, data and allocation of hall for conducting EAMCET-2015 counseling on June 12.

The main issue that prominently figured in the Governor’s meeting was that bifurcation blues should not cause loss to the students to take admissions followed by counseling. Earlier, they discussed the issues with the Governor, who asked them to resolve them amicably across the table.
