Rajasthan’s District and Division Expansion: 19 New Districts and 3 Divisions Approved

//

In a significant development, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s vision of expanding administrative divisions has come to fruition, as his cabinet greenlights the establishment of 19 new districts and 3 divisions in the state. This strategic decision was initially announced during the budget presentation in the election year. With this move, Rajasthan’s administrative landscape now boasts 50 districts and 10 divisions. The formal inauguration of these new districts is slated for August 7, accompanied by a collective interfaith assembly and worship recitation.

The decision has resolved a long-standing dispute concerning the bifurcation of Jaipur into two separate entities: Jaipur City and Jaipur Rural, which are now recognized as distinct districts. A parallel division has occurred in Jodhpur, with the emergence of Jodhpur City and Jodhpur Rural as two individual districts.

Furthermore, the Gehlot cabinet extended its jurisdiction to Dudu, wherein it was decided to form a separate district by amalgamating areas that chose to remain detached from Dudu and affiliating them with Jaipur Rural. In consequence, Dudu has become Rajasthan’s smallest district, surpassing the previous title holder, Dholpur.

Expressing his enthusiasm, Chief Minister Gehlot took to Twitter after the cabinet’s ratification of the new administrative divisions. He highlighted the need to mitigate challenges stemming from vast district expanses, with certain district headquarters situated over 200 kilometers away from certain regions. Gehlot stressed that this expansion aims to enhance accessibility, convenience, and growth for Rajasthan’s populace. His message exuded optimism for the promising trajectory that these newly established districts promise to chart.

The roster of newly created districts encompasses Anupgarh, Gangapur City, Kotputli, Balotra, Jaipur City, Khairthal, Beawar, Jaipur Rural, Neemkathana, Deeg, Jodhpur City, Phalodi, Didwana, Jodhpur Rural, Salumbar, Dudu, Kekri, Sanchore, and Shahpura. In parallel, three fresh divisions have taken form in Rajasthan: Banswara, Pali, and Sikar.

This transformational step marks a historic milestone in Rajasthan’s governance structure, with the promise of improved administrative efficiency and accessibility for citizens across the state.
