When a big state is divided for the convenience of inclusive development, the bifurcated regions might be given special status on every respect. Bihar was bifurcated and followed by AP. While Jharkahand was coined out of Bihar, Telangana has been separated from AP. In that process Telangana got all the infrastructure required for to run the new administration, but for AP, it has to start from raw. So keeping in view the AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has been demanding special status for the development of new state. Though the bifurcation law provides for continuing Hyderabad as the mutual capital. But for the political reasons and ego problems AP wants to build Amaravati as its new capital and for that already beginning as been made. Likewise Bihar also lost natural resources to Jharkhand and hence demanding autonomous status.

The Sixth Schedule of the Constitution of India covers provisions made for the administration of tribal areas in Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram. There are several autonomous administrative divisions where varying degrees of autonomy within the state legislature has been given by the Government of India. However as far as I know, there is no concept of an 'autonomous state' as such in the Constitution of India.
