Passage

Historically, the district in some form or the other has been the most important unit of administration in the Indian Sub-continent. The British Parliament- was the first legislature in respect of India in modern times and enactments created and gave substance to the district head of administration, known normally as the collector, the district magistrate or the deputy commissioner. In the post-independence era, when the economy diversified, and the pace of industrialization and the growth of tertiary activities picked up, other functionaries too gained in importance But, even now, in most parts of the country , excepting metropolitan/mega cities, the collector is the most recognized face of administration , he is considered to be the principal representative of the government at the district level, who could be approached to solve all problems ranging from land disputes … and even to issues of family disorders. Though, as per the new administrative and development environment, PRI՚s/ULBs are the third tier of governments they do not totally remove the collector՚s responsibility in matters of local development . The collector still continues to be responsible for a multiplicity of tasks at the district level such as improving human capabilities, creating physical infrastructure imposing economic opportunities for marginalized sections of society and facing challenges posed by disasters.
