WHAT IS DIFFERENT BETWEEN DEPUTY COLLECTOR AND SDM IN BIHAR?? IS SAME OR NOT?? IF NOT THEN CAN DEPUTY COLLECTOR BECAME SDM?

Amit Banarjee 13th Mar, 2020

HI Nitesh !

The two posts which you mentioned Deputy Collector (DC) and Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) are not different. SDM is a post given to administrative officer below level of district. A district is divided into several Sub-Divisions (tehsils) and the head of those sub-divisions is called as SDM. The Deputy Collector can get several ranks in district level. SDM is one such post a Deputy Collector can acquire.

Hope this helps !
