Indian Constitution - New State Formation


As TRS chief KCR told so many times, formation of telangana state also can be done by the parlimanent without consent of the AP State. But the leaders of the Seemandra never accepted it and did the propaganda that bill should be passed in State Assembly first. While browsing today on net, I found the below details from The Indian Constitution, where in clearly mentioned in the first page, in Part-I, Parliament can form a “new State by separation of territory from any State or by uniting two or more States or parts of States or by uniting any territory to a part of any State”

More details from The Indian Constitution:

Admission or establishment of new States.
PART –I , Article 2
Parliament may by law admit into the Union, or establish, new States on such terms and conditions as it thinks fit.

Formation of new States and alteration of areas, boundaries or names of existing States.
PART –I, Article 3
Parliament may by law—
(a) form a new State by separation of territory from any State or by uniting two or more States or parts of States or by uniting any territory to a part of any State;

(b) increase the area of any State;

(c) diminish the area of any State;

(d) alter the boundaries of any State;

(e) alter the name of any State:


Explanation II.—The power conferred on Parliament by clause (a) includes the power to form a new State or Union territory by uniting a part of any State or Union territory to any other State or Union territory.
