SIMPLIFIER: REDEFINING ADMINISTRATIVE GEOGRAPHIES



ADMINISTRATIVE REFORMS

WHAT IS THE NEED FOR REDEFINING ADMINISTRATIVE GEOGRAPHIES?

India’s current administrative structures are outdated, being remnants of the British Raj. Updating them is necessary to align with modern technology, societal needs, and efficient governance.

WHAT LAWS ARE BEING UPDATED?

The Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita 2023, the Bharatiya Nagrik Suraksha Sanhita 2023, and the Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam 2023 will replace the Indian Penal Code, the Criminal Procedure Code, and the Indian Evidence Act, respectively.

WHY IS UNIFORMITY IMPORTANT IN ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURES?

Uniformity in administrative structures and nomenclature across states improves coordination, efficiency, and governance.

WHAT ARE THE CURRENT ISSUES WITH ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURES?

Current structures are complex and varied, leading to inefficiencies. For example, different states use different titles for district heads, and administrative units do not always align with functional units.

HOW CAN ADMINISTRATIVE UNITS BE CONSOLIDATED?

Administrative units can be consolidated by limiting the number of districts and ensuring each district has uniform subdivisions. This consolidation should consider regional variations and aim for optimal governance.

WHAT IS THE PROPOSED LIMIT FOR THE NUMBER OF DISTRICTS?

The number of districts should be limited to 15% of the number of assembly seats in a state, with each district having four subdivisions, and each subdivision having two blocks.

HOW WILL THIS REORGANIZATION IMPACT STATES?

Reorganizing administrative units will improve financial and administrative efficiency, reducing unnecessary expenditures and streamlining governance processes.

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN THIS REORGANIZATION?

The Government of India should set up a body to bring uniformity to governance structures and nomenclatures, ensuring a modern, effective, and citizen-centric framework.
