The MIMU is pleased to announce the Myanmar P-codes Release VI which updates all administrative structure from States /Regions down to Villages according to the latest Gazette issued on 31 August 2012 by Ministry of Home Affairs. In all, more than 297 new villages and settlements have been added to the list and 805 villages and settlements removed following some villages are upgraded to urban area and some are no longer exist as a village in the ground.
As of August 2012, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar is constituted of 14 states and regions plus 1 Union Territory, 70 districts, 330 townships, 84 sub-townships, 398 towns, 3,063 Wards, 13,618 village tracts and 66,777 villages. In line with the Constitution (2008) there are also … SELF ADMINISTERED ZONE which include 18 of the 330 townships across the country (see in detail list of the SAZ/Ds).
To note that there are some differences between the Government and Self-administered zone/division in administrative definitions of townships, towns, village tracts and villages, especially in Wa and Kokang Area. Access constraints, moving populations and establishment of new villages, lack of a system to routinely gather data on village locations and villages being known by more than one name or by different names than on the Government listing are the main reasons for this issue. MIMU is working with other partners to sort out in this issue by gathering the alternate common name which is using in local people.
