Assam governor approves creation of 79 sub-districts

Guwahati: Assam Governor Gulab Chand Kataria gave his approval for the creation of 79 sub-districts, according to an official notification issued on Tuesday.

The sub-divisions, to be known as sub-districts, have been created for administrative expediency and to derive maximum synergy, productivity and efficiency at the grassroot level, it said.

The geographical limits of the sub-districts shall be co-terminus with the boundaries of the legislative constituencies, it added.

The headquarters of the sub-districts will be in its central location or any other appropriate place to be decided by the district commissioners, the notification said.

The existing civil sub-divisions, except those in Bodoland territorial districts and Sixth Schedule autonomous districts, will cease to exist with immediate effect. The powers and functions of the newly created sub-divisions will be the same as those of the existing sub-divisions at present, it said.
