Karnataka will be getting a new district a decade after seven new districts were carved out, taking the total in the state from 20 to 27 then. To steer clear of prickly issues that previous governments faced before they zeroed in on the seven districts, the Kumaraswamy government has constituted a panel to go into the infrastructure, views and feasibility factors and recommend new districts that could be carved out of Bangalore (Rural), Kolar, Gulbarga and Belgaum.

>How much does it cost to carve out a new district? According to an official estimate, the creation of each new district costs the government around Rs 15 crore.

>

>Formation of a new district needs additional administrative expenditure, as it involves creation of the posts of deputy commissioners and superintendents of police and other paraphernalia. "It leads to creation of new administrative machinery as well as reallocation of existing infrastructure," sources said.

>

>Creation of a new district requires some old and some new infrastructure, because every new district needs to have its own gram, taluk and zilla panchayats, a district court and other offices.
