Telangana Formation Day

The Telangana Formation Day or Telangana Statehood Day is observed on June 2 to commemorate the establishment of Telangana, which came into existence after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. The enabling this bifurcation is the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act (APRA). Telangana officially became a state on this day in 2014, after the state’s first assembly election was held in April the same year. With this, Telangana became the youngest state of India.

This year, the eighth Telangana Formation Day was observed. The celebrations were toned down for the second consecutive year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
