Two new revenue districts - Bijapur and Narayanpur - were carved out in Chhattisgarh, taking the total number of districts to 18. The new districts in the naxal-affected Bastar region were formally inaugurated yesterday by Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh.

Dr Singh said carving out new districts would accelerate the pace of development with the implementation of government schemes in an effective manner.

Bijapur and Narayanpur were earlier declared police districts, but administrative problems prevailed with the posting of Additional Collectors.

Till now, Bijapur remained a part of Dantewada district and Naryanpur was part of Bastar district. The Chief Minister declared sanction of Rs one crore for Bijapur and Rs 1.5 crore for Narayanpur district for developing the district headquarters. He also formally inaugurated the 100-bed hospital, constructed at a cost of Rs 3.32 crore at Narayanpur.

Bijapur district comprises 741 villages spread over 6555 sq km, while Narayanpur has 366 villages sprawling over 6640 sq km.

Earlier, there were only 16 districts when Chhattisgarh was carved out of Madhya Pradesh in November, 2000.
