The apex court directed the APSCHE to complete the process of counselling by August 31 and commence classes from the 1st week of September. The court directed that the impact of the division of the State should not cast a shadow on the students and asked not to politicize the issue with the future of the students.

Brings cheers to AP Government
The interim judgment of the Supreme Court gave a major relief to the student community and the government.

The AP Government too impleaded in the court when their efforts to persuade the counterpart to cooperative and abide by article 371 D did not get any response.
