GUWAHATI: The Assam government will abolish the existing sub-division structure and replaced it by the establishment of sub-districts within each constituency.
Informing this during his address at the 77th Independence Day Celebrations held at the Khanapara Veterinary Field in Guwahati on Tuesday, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma outlined a series of transformative changes slated to reshape the state’s administrative landscape within a remarkably short span of one month.
“There will be no sub-division system in the state. We will form sub-districts in each constituency. This will bring administrative efficiency and ensure that people have easy access to government services,” Sarma said.
Unveiling the government’s ambitious plans for comprehensive administrative reforms, Chief Minister Sarma said that this structural shift seeks to decentralise administrative functions, potentially enhancing governance efficiency and citizen access to services.
In addition to this significant change, the chief minister also announced that districts that have been merged with other existing ones would undergo a thorough review, with a decision about their future determined within the following two months.
“We have merged some districts in order to make them more economically viable. A decision will be taken within two months in case of the districts that have been merged with other existing districts,” Sarma said.
Earlier at the event that was attended by Cabinet Ministers, Kamrup (Metro) DC Pallav Gopal Jha, Guwahati Police Commissioner Diganta Borah, and other dignitaries, the chief minister hoisted the Tricolour at Khanapara, marking the nation’s 77th year of independence.
“On this Independence Day, let’s stand together in pride, unity, and gratitude for the freedom we cherish. May our nation’s journey ahead be filled with progress, peace, and prosperity for all,” posted CM Sarma on a popular micro-blogging website.
