Shri Modi’s decision to create new Talukas and Districts has received extraordinary response across the state because it promises to make the administration more accessible to the people. At a felicitation program, after the announcement of the Bodeli Taluka held last year, Shri Modi spoke at length about the State Government’s pro-people and proactive agenda.

He said that this is not a government that will hoodwink you but it is a government that cares about the wellbeing of the common man. 
 
The newly created districts are expected to be key drivers of the State’s development. For example, it is predicted that the Gir-Somnath district will be an important tourist destination since it is home to not only the iconic Somnath Temple, which draws millions of devotees, but also to the Asiatic Lion. 
 
As per the powers vested on the government under Section-7 of the Mumbai Revenue Act 1987, District Collectors of the Districts and Talukas concerned have been asked to create appropriate facilities after taking into consideration people’s requirements. The government will also undertake efforts to create necessary infrastructure in the new Districts and Talukas. 
 
The creation of new administrative units is a fresh example of Gujarat’s positive and proactive governance model. Moreover, it can be seen as an extension of the Chief Minister’s efforts to promote local self-government institutions. In the past, the Chief Minister has promoted, encouraged and supported the formation of e-gram centres. Because of the e-gram centres, villages now provide important Government and Business services and have become hubs of activity. 
 
The Government of Gujarat has broken new ground by delivering on its previous promises and in doing so, has reinforced people’s faith in democratic institutions.
