The eastern-most frontier state, presently with 17 districts, will have 21 districts, once the new districts come to existence, they said.
    
The state Legislative Assembly, in its session in March last year, had passed the Arunachal Pradesh (Re-Organization of Districts) (Amendment) Bill, 2013, paving way for creation of the four new districts — Kra Daadi, Namsai, Siang and Lower Siang districts.
    
With the Governor's assent, a notification in this regard would be issued soon, sources said.
    
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki in a statement said that the people's aspirations have been fulfilled at last.
    
"Ours is a pro-people government. Therefore all decisions are taken after taking into account the genuineness, necessity and popular demand of the people. Our decisions are not ours but of the people," Tuki was quoted as saying in the statement.
