Administration of Bhilwara district is carried out by the District Collector. He is the head of the general administration of the district. In the task of administration, the district collector is assisted by three Additional Collectors. The Additional Collector of the city is responsible for law and order in Bhilwara city. The Additional Collector of Administration is responsible for routine and institutional administration. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO of the Zilla Parishad) is responsible for developmental administration.
Following the formation of the state of Rajasthan, a uniform pattern was evolved for the administration of the entire state of Rajasthan. It was divided into a total of six divisions.
Bhilwara district is included in Ajmer
division .The entire division is in the charge of a Divisional Commissioner. The district is now divided into eight sub-divisions. These are-Bhilwara, Banera, Shahpura, Gangapur
, Mandal, Mandalgarh
and Jahazpur. Each sub division is under the charge of sub divisional magistrate. These sub-divisions are further sub-divided into twelve Tehsils, Bhilwara, Banera, Mandal, Mandalgarh, Bijoliya, Kotri, Shahpura, Jahajpur, Sahada, Raipur, Asind, Hurda and four Sub Tehsils. They are Kareda (Mandal), Badnor (Asind), Hamirgarh(Bhilwara) and Puliakalan (Shahpura). These tehsils are again sub-divided into Patwar circles and villages.
Bhilwara was placed in Udaipur
range after the formation of state, but now it is in Ajmer range. The entire police of the district is divided in to five police circles viz., Bhilwara, Shahpura, Gangapur, Gulabpura and Mandalgarh. These are placed under the control of D.S.P`s. The Circles are again sub-divided into 27 police stations which in their turn are subdivided into 40 police chowkies. Besides, Reserve Police Line and the City and Traffic control police are stationed at district headquarters.
In keeping with the principles of decentralisation, the district of Zila Parishad is divided into eleven Panchayat Samitis, visibly Suwana, Mandal, Kotri, Mandalgarhs, Sahada, Hurda, Asind, Banera, Raipur, Shahpura and Jahajpur. These Panchayat Samities are further sub-divided in to Gram Panchayats. The Political head of Zila Parishad is called Zila Pramukh and Administrative head of the institution is called Chief Executive Officer. Panchayat Samities follow the same pattern. The political representative is called Pradhan and administrative head is the Block Development Ofiicer.
The structure of local self-government at the urban level is made with two institutes, the Urban Improvement Trust and Nagar Parishad. Both political representatives and civil servants are there in these institutions. Beside these, all the sub divisions are managed by Nagar Palikas.
The administration of Bhilwara district is thus carried out in a well-systematised process with provisions for both rural as well as urban growth.
