Srikrishna_committee

A distinguished former Supreme Court judge, who had received plaudits for his report on the Mumbai riots, chaired the Srikrishna Committee on Telangana set up in February 2010.

Four other members, including a vice-chancellor of a law university, a retired secretary of the Government of India of average standing and two academics of moderate distinction, assisted him. The committee was further assisted by panoply of staff, retired and serving bureaucrats and consultants (both formal and informal), in writing the report. The committee conducted extensive consultations in the Andhra Pradesh and Delhi and had received, and presumably read and absorbed, nearly a lakh of written submissions. They also received oral and written presentations from 102 political and civil society groups.
