why we have district magistrate when we have a disctrict council CEO in Maharashtra

The presence of both a District Magistrate (often referred to as the District Collector जिल्हा अधिकारी) and a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) मुख्य कार्यकारी अधिकारी of a District Council (Zilla Parishad - जिल्हा परिषद) in Maharashtra serves distinct administrative functions, and their roles are defined by different levels of government and responsibilities:

District Magistrate (Collector) - जिल्हा अधिकारी

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of District Council (Zilla Parishad) - मुख्य कार्यकारी अधिकारी

In summary, the District Magistrate (Collector) and the CEO of the District Council (Zilla Parishad) have distinct roles and responsibilities. The District Magistrate focuses on overall district administration, law and order, and coordination of various government departments, while the CEO of the District Council focuses on rural development and local governance programs in collaboration with the Zilla Parishad.

Their roles complement each other to ensure effective governance and development at both the district and rural levels in Maharashtra. The presence of these two administrative positions is part of the decentralized governance structure in India, allowing for better local administration and development.
