CM Jagan Mohan Reddy will inaugurate the 13 new districts on April 4 between 9:04 and 9:45 a.m.
Soon after notification was issued, the Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress government reshuffled IAS and IPS officers and appointed collectors and Superintendents of Police to the newly-created districts.
The state government, in January, had issued a draft notification to carve out 26 districts from the existing 13 and invited suggestions and objections. Reddy, during the poll campaign for the 2019 Assembly elections, promised that his party, if voted to power, would make every Lok Sabha constituency as a district. The state has 25 Lok Sabha seats. One district was additionally created carving out the tribal areas in East Godavari and Visakhapatnam.
