Karnataka Cabinet clears two new districts Karnataka Cabinet today approved formation of two new districts-Ramanagara and Chikballapura to facilitate easy administration to the people.Briefing newsmen here after the cabinet meeting, Home Minister M P Prakash said that while Kolar district was bifurcated to form the Chikballapura district, Ramanagara, the Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s assembly constituency, was formed as a new district comprising four taluks after dividing the Bangalore Rural district.
Ramanagaram to be 28th district of Karnataka H D Kumaraswamy’s constituency, Ramanagaram, in Bangalore Rural district will become the 28th district of Karnataka. To coincide with the number, it will be inaugurated on June 28. Kumaraswamy made this announcement at the launch of midday meal scheme here on Wednesday. Karnataka will be getting a new district a decade after seven new districts were carved out, taking the total in the state from 20 to 27 then. To steer clear of prickly issues that previous governments faced before they zeroed in on the seven districts, the Kumaraswamy government has constituted a panel to go into the infrastructure, views and feasibility factors and recommend new districts that could be carved out of Bangalore (Rural), Kolar, Gulbarga and Belgaum.
3 to 4 new districts to be carved out soon in Karnataka Karnataka is all set to get three or four new districts. While there are no problems with the proposed Chikballapur district (carved out of Bangalore Rural and Kolar), the break-up of the unwieldy Belgaum and Gulbarga districts is likely to run into trouble.
