    District Administration :-

    The District Administration is headed by the Deputy Commissioner. He also acts as the Collector in case of Revenue matters, as District Magistrate in case of maintenance of Law and Order and General Administration, as District Election Officer in case of conduct of Election and so on.

    Revenue Administration has historically been the primary responsibility of the District Administration. This involves collection and fixing of land revenue, registration, mutation and overall management in regard to land matters - private and public. Besides the Revenue Branch of the Deputy Commissioner's Office, which is looked after by the Additional Deputy Commissioner (Revenue), there are 11 outlying Revenue Circles in the district, supervised by Circle Officers. The Mouzadars under the Circle Officers are responsible for collecting land revenue (Khazna) from land owners (pattadars). All the Circle Officers are required to submit 'doul' (demand of revenue) to DC, and after his approval, Mouzadars are to collect revenue as per demand.

    Apart from Revenue matters, District Development is one very important objective of the District Administration. As head of the District Administration, the DC is responsible for all-round developmental activities in the district under various programmes such as MP's Local Area Fund (MPLAD), MLA's fund, Untied Fund, Sub-divisional Plan Scheme Fund, Border Area Development Fund and so on. For this work, the DC assigns the A.D.C. (Development) the specific task of looking after and coordinating various developmental activities undertaken in various sectors. The ADC (Development) is aided in this matter by the Decentralised Planning Cell of the DC's office. All development departments in the district, like PWD, Irrigation, Health, Education and many others work inco-ordination and a District Development Committee (DDC) headed by D.C. has been in place to ensure this coordination. Under the Government policy of rapid upliftment of rural population, a District Rural Development Agency (DRDA) is functioning in the district which has the DC as the Chairman and one Project Director as its functional head. All schemes for Rural Development are implemented by this agency and in this work, it is aided by the 15 (fifteen) Development Blocks situated in outlying rural areas of the district. These Development Blocks are supervised by Block Development Officers (BDOs) and Senior BDOs.

    Maintenance of Law & Order is another important aspect of the district administration and the DC, also being the D.M., is responsible for proper maintenance of the same. The DC is aided by the Additional Deputy Magistrates (ADM), Sub-Divisional Magistrates (SDM) and Executive Magistrates (EM). The Circle Officers of the Circles also function as Executive Magistrates and are responsible for maintenance of Law & Order in their respective circle areas. The DM and other magistrates take necessary assistance from the police department when such necessity arises. District Police Administration is headed by the Superintendent of Police. The police department has an infra-structure of 12(twelve) police stations in the district.
