Districts hold varying degree of administrative divisions in Azad Kashmir, Gilgit- Baltistan and the other areas of Pakistan. This article goes in detail about the degree that District level administration holds.
Districts form the second level of an administrative classification in the country of Pakistan. Until 2007, districts formed the third order of administrative division but after the 2000 reforms, the “divisions” was eliminated and districts came after the “Province” administrative division. In the local government’s three tier system, districts hold the top position. The other two tiers consist of the roughly five ninety six Tehsils and above six thousand union councils. Before the year 2001, Pakistan consisted of 106 districts.
The 2001 Changes
After the changes made in 2001, the districts were condensed to 102. This happened after the five districts of Karachi, Karachi Central, Karachi East, Karachi South, Karachi West and Malir, were made into only one district called the “Karachi District”. In 2004, the districts again reached the count of 106. This happened when Sindh had four new districts formed within it. One of them (Umerkot) already existed until 2000, but it was restored in 2004, the other three being, Kashmore, Qambar and Jamshoro.
The 2005 Changes
In May 2005, the number of districts was again altered when the government of Punjab made a new district. The Punjab Government made “Nankana Sahib” a district, raising its rank higher from a Tehsil. It previously used to be a Tehsil of the Sheikhupura district in Punjab.
