Districts of Pakistan

The Districts of Pakistan form the third tier of government in Pakistan,


ranking as subdivisions of the provinces of Pakistan. Prior to August 2000, the
provinces contained administrative units called divisions which contained
districts as the fourth level of government. In August 2000, the divisions were
abolished as an administrative tier, and the provinces are now directly divided
into districts.

Districts are further subdivided into tehsils which may contain villages or
municipalities. There are over five thousand local governments in Pakistan.
Since 2001, these have been led by democratically elected local councils, each
headed by a Nazim (the word means "supervisor" in Urdu, but is sometimes
translated as "mayor"). Women have been allotted a minimum of 33% seats in
these councils; there is no upper limit to the number of women in these
councils.
Prior to 2001, there were 106 districts but with the reorganisation, these were
reduced to 102 by the merger of the five districts of Karachi Central, Karachi
East, Karachi South, Karachi West and Malir to form Karachi District. The five
districts had formed the division of Karachi which was abolished. The number of
districts rose to 106 again in December 2004, when four new districts[1] were
created in the province of Sindh of which one (Umerkot) had existed until 2000
and three districts (Kashmore, Qambar and Jamshoro) were newly created.
In May 2005, the Punjab provincial government created a new district[2] by
raising the status of the Nankana Sahib from a tehsil of Sheikhpura District to
a district in its own right.
In Azad Kashmir, the second tier of government is formed by two
administrative divisions with a third tier of seven districts. In the Northern
Areas, there are six districts divided between two informal regions. The Azad
Kashmir and Northern Area districts are not included in the lists below.
