Since the Centre had hastened process for the delimitation of the Assembly constituencies in the state, the government wants to complete the process of carving out of new districts as early as possible. Hence, the Chief Minister instructed the officials to prepare an action plan and speed up the process for the creation of new districts and mandals and prepare modalities in a scientific manner.
The increase in the number of districts would help the state get more Central funds and grants as the Centre has taken district as a unit for the allocation of funds for implementing developmental programmes and the establishment of Central institutions. The Centrally sponsored schemes will be implemented and new universities and educational institutions will be sanctioned with district as a unit by the Central government. Creation of new districts means that the State would have more educational institutions and grants,
Now, many of the district headquarters are far away from some villages. Once the districts are reorganised, every village will be within 100 km distance of the district headquarters. The new districts will also create job opportunity for local youth.

The reorganisation of districts has been taken up for better administration.

After almost 38 years, the revenue districts are being reorganised taking the total districts from the present 10 to 31. This will be a major administrative reform in Telangana after the then chief minister NT Rama Rao’s similar exercise of forming 1,100 mandals by splitting 280 blocks in the erstwhile united AP. “Introduction of mandal system by NTR brought about drastic changes at the grassroots level in terms of taking administration to people’s doorstep up to some extent. Though there was initial resistance from some leaders, it gradually won the hearts of the people as the administration went closer to the people. We are expecting similar success from the creation of smaller districts.
The minister said that the government expected three benefits from the formation of smaller districts: the administration will move closer to the people, second-rung leadership will emerge in new districts and dominance of certain people will be challenged with the emergence of new leaders. The mandal system brought these three benefits to some extent.
