Chief minister Mr K Chandrasekhar Rao will be touring various districts to inaugurate the integrated collectorate complexes.
On August 25, he will visit Ranga Reddy district, on August 29 – Peddapalli district, September 5 – Nizamabad district, and on September 10, he will visit Jagitial district.
The integrated offices at Mahabubanagar, Bhadradri, and Kothagudem districts were also ready for the inauguration but depending on his schedule, he would be visiting those districts as well.
With the objective of decentralisation of power and reaching out to the remote corners, Mr K Chandrasekhar Rao has embarked on creating new districts. From 10 districts, they were made into 33 new districts.
The Telangana government focussed on creating necessary infrastructure building new collector, district police, and other offices. While the new collector offices accommodate about 30 departments, the police will have a new setup at a different place within the new district headquarters.
The new collector offices that were commissioned already include – Siddipet, Kamareddy, Hanumakonda, Jangaon, Rajanna Sircilla, Yadadri Bhuvanagiri, Wanaparthy, Vikarabad and Medchal Malkajgiri districts.
Those which are ready for inauguration include Ranga Reddy, Nizamabad, Jagitial, Peddapalli, Mahabubnagar and Bhadradri Kothagudem district.
The new offices that are due for completion are Kumrambheem Asifabad, Nirmal, Manchiryala, Khammam, Jayashankar Bhupalpally, Mahubabad, Jogulamba Gadwala, Nagarkarnool, Medak, and Suryapet districts.
Those which are yet to begin construction are Mulugu, Narayanapet, Adilabad, and Warangal.
The formation of new districts helped the poor heave a sigh of relief as they need not travel long distances to see the district collector or visit the district headquarters for other purposes such as registration, court, and educational institutions among others.
The new and cosy offices with the latest equipment and ultramodern furniture, and lighting not only provided a good ambiance to the employees but remain an invaluable asset of the state.
This forms only a little bit of infrastructure that was developed during the past eight years of state formation. The visionary chief minister Mr Chandrasekhar Rao achieved a balance between infrastructure and welfare sectors in the new Telangana state.
