·THE ANDHRA PRADESH UNIVERSITIES ACT, 1991 (Act No.4 0/1991) Statement of Objects and Reasons At present there are six conventional Universities in the State, each governed by a separate enactment. These Universities are the Andhra University and Nagarjuna University in the Andhra Area of the State, Sri Venkateswara University and Sri Krishnadevaraya University in the Rayalaseema region, the Osmania University and the Kakatiya University in the Telangana area ofthe State.The provisions ofthe various Universities Acts governing the aforesaid Universities are substantially the same with minor variations here and there. Whenever there is a change in the policy of the Government and an amendment isto be effected,it isresulting in the amendment of all the SixUniversities Acts,which is contributing to legislative duplication. Further if any new University isto be established with the sameaims and objects,a separate enactment has to be passed.
