The Madhya Pradesh Government today decided to constitute the Agar-Malwa District, which would be the state's 51st and come into being from Friday.

A Cabinet meeting -- chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan -- took the decision, an official release said.

The district has been carved by excluding Agar, Badaud, Susner and Nalkhera tehsils from Shajapur District. Population of the district -- spread over 2,785 sq km -- is 4.80 lakh. It would have two sub-divisions Agar and Susner. Situated beside the Indore-Kota Highway, Agar is mainly agrarian with 1.07 lakh farmers and 2 lakh ha arable land.

The Cabinet endorsed the Mukhyamantri Yuva Engineer-Contractor Yojana announced by the Chief Minister at the Yuva Panchayat. Under the scheme, 500 young engineers holding civil and electrical engineering degrees would be imparted six months' internship.

Amendment in Rule 3 of the Madhya Pradesh Gaun Khanij Niyam, 1966 was approved. According to it, permission to mine minor minerals would be granted to Water Users' associations from government land allotted to them.

The Cabinet decided to continue the scheme to provide short-term interest-free loans to farmers through cooperative banks in 2013-14. UNI AC RSA BST2222 NNNN
