Andhra Pradesh to have 13 new districts from 4 April onwards

Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh cabinet meeting chaired by chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday approved the reorganisation of districts and approved to form new districts on April 4 between 9.05 am and 9.45 am. A final notification is expected to be released a day before the event.

Following the formation, there will be an event honoring the volunteers on April 6 and launching the Jagananna Vasathi Deevena program on April 8. The date was earlier decided to be on April 2, on the day of Ugadi, but it was later changed.

In Wednesday's meeting, CM discussed the creation of infrastructure and construction of future administrative complexes for the new districts. It is known that around 16,000 suggestions and objections were received from the public regarding the new districts. Changes to begin administration in the new districts are made as per the public representations.



New staff and postings

The officials have considered staff separation, the six-point formula in postings, and presidential orders. Officials have prepared a checklist before the officers join duty in the new districts. Sources said that the government has decided to post one district collector, one joint collector, one superintendent of police (SP) or city commissioner to each district. A new website and new mechanisms will be set up for the new districts. Also, a handbook with information about new districts has been prepared.

Buildings for officers

Offices for Collector, Police department, and camp office are getting ready in all the districts. The majority of the offices are selected in government buildings, while districts with no vacant government buildings have taken private ones for lease. "At least 15 acres of land will be selected to construct permanent administrative complexes in the new districts, and the buildings will have offices of the District Police and Collector under the same roof. While the administration will be temporarily run in existing buildings, priority will be given to the construction of new buildings in the future, " said Jagan.
