Ministry of Home Affairs has returned Uttar Pradesh government's proposal for division of the state and posed 8 questions.


Instead, the Mayawati government has been asked to explain the details of her plans to divide the state into four different states.


The home ministry has sought clarifications from the Mayawati government on its resolution to split Uttar Pradesh into four parts.


It has asked the state government to clarify on state boundaries, debt burden for division, and how it will be shared, distribution of cadre, pension liability etc.


The question included, how and who will bear the burden for division and how will division of bureaucracy work out?.


The other question posed were - how will the debt burden be shared and how will the border be reworked?


"What will be the boundaries of the proposed state? Which cities would become the state capital? What will be the revenue sharing arrangement? Has any economic feasibility study been done? Basis for suggesting such a division? Also what is the area, district population division being suggested?," the MHA has asked.


Last month, Mayawati government's resolution to divide Uttar Pradesh into four parts - Purvanchal (Eastern UP), Harit Pradesh (Western UP), Bundelkhand and Awadh Pradesh (Central UP) - was passed by the state Assembly.

Home Secretary RK Singh said, "We have asked the UP government on 8 to 9 point information on their proposal of division of State into four parts."
