Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel, on request of people from Lavan Up-Tehsil of Balodabazar district at Jan-Chaupal:Bhent-Mulaqat programme, announced that Lavan Up-Tehsil will be upgraded as Tehsil. Delegation of people from Lavan informed that the up-tehsil has 70 gram panchayats and people often have to travel all the way to Balodabazar for tehsil-related works.
