West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is expected to officially announce Sundarbans and Basirhat as two new districts of the state during an administrative meeting scheduled on November 29, a senior official said on Monday.
The two districts are set to be carved out of South and North 24 Parganas districts, he said.
"All the necessary work to create the two new districts has been completed. The CM is likely to announce the names tomorrow in Hingalganj during the administrative meeting," the official told PTI.
The CM will begin her three-day tour of the mangrove area of Sundarbans from Monday.
