After the state administration announced the construction of 19 new districts and three new divisions.
Rajasthan is about to see a significant administrative reform. At Friday’s assembly session, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot made this declaration. Rajasthan will now have 10 divisions and a total of 50 districts with this expansion.
Jaipur district has been divided into Jaipur North, Jaipur South, Dudu, and Kotputli districts, making a total of four new districts.
Banswara, Pali, and Sikar are the newest divisions. However, it is yet unclear which districts would be under the control of these headquarters, the government has given the area considerable consideration. The tribal belts of Mewar, Marwar, and Shekhawati were used to carve off Banswara, Pali from Marwar, and Sikar from Shekhawati.
For easier administration, the government has also separated a few of the current districts. Three districts—Jodhpur East, Jodhpur West, and Phalodi—have been created from the city of Jodhpur, the seat of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
In order to construct new districts, some other districts have been separated. Anupgarh was created from Sriganganagar, Balotra from Barmer, Beawar, and Kekri from Ajmer, Deeg from Bharatpur, Didwana-Kuchamancity from Nagaur, Gangapur City from Sawaimadhopur, Khairthal from Alwar, Neem ka Thana from Sikar, Salumbar from Udaipur, and Shahpura from Jalore.
Thus, the declaration came after a six-month extension was granted to the High Power Committee, led by retired IAS Ramlubhaya. To propose the creation of additional districts, the committee received separate memoranda from 60 different leaders requesting the establishment of additional districts.
