Bhubaneswar: The Odisha government today announced the formation of three new revenue circles in Bargarh. The decision was taken ahead of the by-elections in the Bijepur assembly constituency.

The new circles will be at Talpali, Guderipali and Dangbahal. This apart, the Gaisilet revenue circle has been reorganised with its headquarters at Gaisilet, an official release said.

The state government's decision was in accordance with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's special package for Bijepur, promising the creation of three new Revenue Inspector Circles at Guderpali, Talpali and Dangabahal under Gaisilet tehsil.

The package was announced days before Patnaik resigned from the Bijepur assembly segment, from where he was elected in the recent assembly elections. He had won the assembly elections from both Hinjili and Bijepur constituencies.
