Besides this, around 40 new mandals and new revenue divisions will also be created in the state. Accordingly, one revenue divisional officer (RDO) will be available for eight to ten mandals.
In the review meeting, KCR directed chief secretary Rajiv Sharma to prepare an action plan for reorganisation of the districts, revenue divisions and mandals immediately.
The meeting, which was attended by deputy chief minister Mohammad Mahmood Ali and top officials, also discussed the convenience of the rural masses while carving out new districts.
The Chief Minister said that all the Centrally sponsored schemes will be implemented and new universities and educational institutions will be sanctioned with district as a unit by the Central government. Creation of new districts means that the State would have more educational institutions and grants, Rao explained.
Now, many of the district headquarters are far away from some villages. Once the districts are reorganised, every village will be within 100 km distance of the district headquarters.
New DTS around Hyderabad
The newly developing towns around Hyderabad will be clubbed to form new districts, Rao explained. Creation of new districts means decentralisation of administration, Rao said. He also told the officials to conduct a thorough exercise for creation of new districts in a scientific manner ensuring that convenience of the public is given utmost priority.
Though there were demands from various quarters to declare their respective towns as district headquarters, the Chief Minister said that the new district headquarter towns would be decided as per the convenience of the people.
The new districts will also create job opportunity for local youth. Rao also said that new residences need to be constructed for the district collectors and SPs in the new districts. The new offices should have good conference halls and rooms, he said.
