June 02, 2014 15:24 IST

Now that the Telangana state has taken birth with a chief minister at the helm, Vicky Nanjappa / gives a lowdown on the changes that people, who were once part of the united Andhra Pradesh, will go through

What will NOT change:

* Postal codes.

* Passport or Adhaar card‎s

* Calls between Telangana and Seema-Andhra will be local and not Standard Trunk Dialling. The STD codes would remain the same.

‎What WILL change:

* Registration number of vehicles: New vehicles in Telangana will be registered under the TG number plate where as old vehicles have been given up to 3 years to effect a change. However, this process needs approval by the Centre. Some feel that the boards should read TS instead of TG. This confusion has led to a complete stop of the registration Telangana since the past ten days.

* Liquor in Telangana will be sold with a pink label.

* All boards with Andhra Pradesh will now be changed to Telangana.

* The Taxpayer Identification Number in Telangana will now use the prefix 36. Those in Seema-Andhra will use 37.
