The Group of Ministers on Telangana will submit its report on creation of the new State, by bifurcating Andhra Pradesh, before the winter session of Parliament, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said on Friday.

But the Minister, who heads the high level panel, refused to give any time frame by when Telangana would be created. “There is a process [of creating a new State] …. When Parliament passes the [Telangana] Bill, the new State will be formed,” he told journalists here.

Meanwhile, senior officials of the Home Ministry had a meeting with their colleagues in other Central ministries over the creation of Telangana and submitted reports on Andhra Pradesh.

The Home Ministry and other Ministries are preparing reports on division of assets, natural resources and the bureaucracy, and these would be presented to the GoM before its next meeting on November 7.

The GoM has already held two meetings.
