New District Formation UPSC NOTE


Recently in news

  • Government in Rajasthan approved a proposal to form 19 new districts and three new divisions in the State.

  • The decision taken at a State Cabinet meeting will take the total number of districts in the country’s largest State to 50.

  • On March 17, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had announced in the Assembly that new districts will be created based on the proposal of the high-level Ram Lubhaya Committee.

  • The move is a step towards decentralisation of power. 

  • It will also improve governance and bring relief to common people, farmers, landholders, and beneficiaries of schemes who have to cover long distances to reach the district headquarters for government-related work.

How a new district is formed in india?

  • The power to create new districts or alter or abolish existing districts rests with the State governments.

  • This can either be done through an executive order or by passing a law in the State Assembly.

  • Many States prefer the executive route by simply issuing a notification in the official gazette.

  • The Centre has no role to play in the alteration of districts or creation of new ones. States are free to decide.

  • The Home Ministry comes into the picture when a State wants to change the name of a district.

  • The State government's request is sent to other departments and agencies such as the Union Ministry of Earth Sciences, Intelligence Bureau, Department of Posts, Geographical Survey of India Sciences.

  • A no-objection certificate may be issued after examining their replies.
