Stating that the government has entrusted the responsibility of launching of new districts to Ministers, Mahabubnagar District Collector T K Sridevi said that the new districts were carved out to bring administration closer to the people. Addressing the media here on Monday in connection with the launching of three districts from the existing Mahabubnagar on Tuesday, the Collector said while Minister for Animal Husbandry Talasani Srinivasa Yadav would formally launch Gadwal district, Panchayat Raj Minister Jupally Krishna Rao and Medical and Health Minister C Laxma Reddy would launch Wanaparthy and Nagarkurnool districts, respectively.

After the formal launch of new districts, the Collectors would take charge followed by the inauguration of district police headquarters. The Collector said that the government has promoted employees of different categories in the Revenue Department to ease the administration in the new districts. While 58 were promoted as Deputy Tahsildars, 45 were promoted as senior assistants, 14 as junior assistants and another 36 as VROs.

Besides promoting the existing staff, 28 backlog posts were filled and 32 junior assistant and 25 office subordinate posts were filled under compensatory appointment norms, she said. At a separate meeting, the Collector released a souvenir on the conduct of Krishna Pushkaralu and a book on Alampur Jogulamba temple and its prominence.
