Congress to reorganize districts in Telangana:- The Telangana Congress government intends to revamp the district system in order to enhance administration and development. Presently, the state has 33 districts, with seven of them having populations below six lakh, which raises concerns about effective governance in those areas. Under the leadership of Chief Minister Revanth Reddy, the government aims to address the deficiencies of the current district setup. The existing district boundaries, which were allegedly established without proper groundwork, are being reconsidered to ensure better coordination and allocation of resources.

From 2016 to 2019, the previous government added 23 new districts to the existing ten for administrative purposes. However, Chief Minister Revanth Reddy criticized this expansion as unscientific. He intends to establish a judicial commission to review the process of district reorganization. In order to streamline governance, the state government is contemplating reducing the number of districts from the current 33 to 25 or 26. This decision may involve political discussions and considerations, as it could impact various constituencies. Certain districts, such as Mulugu, Jayashankar-Bhupalpally, and Sircilla, have populations below six lakh each. The government is exploring possibilities for merging specific districts to optimize resources and enhance administrative efficiency.
