The Telangana Cabinet recommended the dissolution of the state assembly Thursday, official sources said.
Sources said Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is likely to meet Governor ESL Narasimhan shortly to convey the decision.
Speculation was rife for quite some time that Rao may go in for a snap poll.
The decision on whether to hold an early election now rests with the Election Commission.
In normal circumstances, election to the Telangana assembly would coincide with the Lok Sabha polls.
