Telangana in Bihar’s foot-steps; sets up Election Authority

On the lines of Bihar the newly appointed independent Telangana state cooperative Election Authority will now hold all cooperative polls in the state, reports Hindu.

The state government has amended the Cooperative Societies Act, 1964, to bring in major changes in the existing election procedures. The amendment means Registrars and District Collectors are the competent authorities to organize elections.
