  The term of Office of 1 (one) member of Telangana Legislative Council from Adilabad Local Authorities’ Constituency of the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Council expired on 1st May, 2013 (Before the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh into Andhra Pradesh & Telangana) but election could not be conducted due to non-availability of constituents/elected bodies and electors. Also, the term of office of 8 (eight) members of the Telangana Legislative Council from eight Local Authorities’ Constituencies expired on 1st May, 2015.  The election could not be conducted earlier in time as there were inconsistencies in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act, 2014.  The said inconsistencies have been removed now by creating one more seat in each of Karimnagar, Ranga Reddy and Mahabubnagar LACs.
