Proposed districts[edit]

The Government of Telangana had initiated a process to carve out new districts in the state for administrative ease in accordance with the provisions of Andhra Pradesh Districts Reorganisation Act, 1974 and Telangana District Formation Rules, 2016. After much speculation about new districts, a cabinet sub-committee submitted a preliminary report with proposals to create 17 new districts thereby increasing the existing number of 10 districts to 27.
