ABSTRACT:
The District Administration means the management of the task of government so far as it lies within an area legally recognized as a district. The district collector or district magistrate is a member of the Indian Administrative Services (IAS) and is in charge of the administration of a district in India.The local governments of both rural (Panchayat Raj Institutions governments) and urban (Municipal governments) are part of the District Administration in India. The District Administration has gradually evolved since ancient times to the present modern times in India. After India’s independence, District Administration has been rapidly developed and its significance has gained more prominence for overall development of the district. All the 28 states and 8 Union Territories (UTs) in India are divided into districts. The number of districts differs from state to state and UT to UT in India. The India’s largest state of Rajasthan had recently increased its number of districts from 31 to 50. According to chief minister of Rajasthan (State) Mr. Ashok Gehlot said that the creation of new districts, which was a step towards decentralisation of power, would improve governance and bring relief to common people, farmers, landholders and beneficiaries of the government’s schemes, who had to travel long distances to district headquarters.
