Administrative Setup

    In a democratic system, people have an important contribution in development through decentralized planning. The work of collective thinking, discussion and guidance by the public is performed by the village panchayats at the village level, block committees at the block level, and district panchayats at the district level. Devipatan mandal has 44 development blocks (Bahraich – 14, Gonda – 16, Shravasti -5 and Balrampur – 9) and 16 Tehsils (Bahraich – 6, Gonda – 4, Shravasti – 3 and Balrampur – 3).

    There is also an effort to achieve social and economic goals with the combined efforts of public representatives, public servants and voluntary organizations. District decentralized system has an important role in the planning structure. There are 457 Nyaya Panchayats and 3465 Gram Sabhas in Devipatan Mandal. The total number of inhabited villages in the Division is 4672 and the number of non-populated villages is 88.
