This is the first time since 2008 that new districts are being carved out, taking the number of districts to 50. Gehlot made the announcement in the Rajasthan Assembly, which also passed the 2023-24 Budget with a voice vote.

“The state will now have 19 new districts,” the Chief Minister said during a discussion on the Budget. The three new divisions will be in Banswara, Pali and Sikar, he said. In 2008, then CM Vasundhara Raje had made Pratapgarh a district.
