With the creation of three new districts, seven subdivisions, five tehsils, one sub-tehsil and six blocks, a major administrative reshuffle is on the cards in Haryana.  

A Cabinet sub-committee headed by Agriculture Minister OP Dhankar today proposed that Charkhi Dadri (Bhiwani), Hansi (Hisar) and Gohana (Sonepat) be made districts. 

Dhankar said an administrative committee headed by the Financial Commissioner Revenue (FCR) had been set up to examine the feasibility of the proposal and submit a report by May 31.

 Sources said Charkhi Dadri, Hansi and Gohana met the parameters for being upgraded as districts — they comprised150-200 villages, at least two tehsils and two sub-divisions and had a population of  5 lakh-7 lakh. “Nevertheless, we will elicit public opinion on the proposal,” Dhankar said.          

The new subdivisions recommended by the sub-committee include  Uchana (Jind), Badhra (Bhiwani), Badhkal (Faridabad), Radaur (Yamunanagar), Badli (Jhajjar), Narnaund (Hisar) and Ladwa (Kurukshetra). Also, a sub-tehsil will be set up at Badli, Uchana and Ladwa.

The new tehsils recommended are Alewa (Jind), Khijrabad  Yamunanagar), Mataluda (Panipat), Raipur Rani (Panchkula) and Bass (Hisar). The Cabinet sub-committee has also recommended creation of Palawas sub-tehsil in Rewari district.

The six new blocks would be  Badli (Jhajjar), Khijrabad (Yamunanagar), Badauli (Palwal),  Pipli (Kurukshetra), Dahina (Rewari) and Charkhi Dadri (Bhiwani). The sub-committee has suggested renaming blocks Dadri-1 and Dadri-2 as Baund and Jhoju.

The state has 126 blocks for now. Their number will rise to 132 after Cabinet approval.
