District magistrate (India)
A district magistrate abbreviated to DM, is an Indian Administrative Service officer, the senior most executive magistrate and chief in charge of general administration of a district in India. Since district magistrates are responsible for collection of land revenue in the district, the post is referred to as the district collector, as the office-bearer works under the supervision of a divisional commissioner, the post is known as deputy commissioner. District administration in India is a legacy of the British Raj. District collectors were members of the Indian Civil Service and were charged with supervising general administration in the district. Warren Hastings introduced the office of the district collector in 1772. Sir George Campbell, lieutenant-governor of Bengal from 1871-1874, intended "to render the heads of districts no longer the drudges of many departments and masters of none, but in fact the general controlling authority over all departments in each district."The office of a collector during the British Raj held multiple responsibilities – as collector, he was the head of the revenue organization, charged with registration and partition of holdings.
As district magistrate, he exercised general supervision over the inferior courts and in particular, directed the police work. The office was meant to achieve the "peculiar purpose" of collecting revenue and of keeping the peace; the superintendent of police, inspector general of jails, the surgeon general, the divisional forest officer and the chief engineer had to inform the collector of every activity in their departments. Until the part of the nineteenth century, no native was eligible to become a district collector, but with the introduction of open competitive examinations for the Indian Civil Service, the office was opened to natives. Anandaram Baruah, an eminent scholar of Sanskrit and the sixth Indian and the first Assamese ICS officer, became the third Indian to be appointed a district magistrate, the first two being Romesh Chandra Dutt and Sripad Babaji Thakur respectively; the district continued to be the unit of administration after India gained independence in 1947. The role of the district collector remained unchanged, except for the separation of most judicial powers to judicial officers of the district.
With the promulgation of the National Extension Services and Community Development Programme by the Nehru government in 1952, the district collector was entrusted with the additional responsibility of implementing the Government of India's development programs in the district. They are posted by the state government, from among the pool of Indian Administrative Service officers, who either are on Level 11, Level 12 or Level 13 of the Pay Matrix, in the state; the members of the IAS are either directly recruited by the Union Public Service Commission, promoted from State Civil Service or nominated from Non-State Civil Service. The direct recruits are posted as collectors after five to six years of service, whereas the promoted members from state civil services occupy this post after promotion to the IAS, which happens after two decades of service. A district magistrate and collector is transferred to and from the post by the state government; the office bearer is of the rank of deputy secretary or director in Government of India.
The responsibilities assigned to a district magistrate vary from state to state, but district collectors are entrusted with a wide range of duties in the jurisdiction of the district involving the following: As district magistrate Conducts criminal court of executive magistrate. Maintenance of law and order. Supervision of the police and jails. Supervision of subordinate executive conduct magisterial inquiries. Hearing cases under the preventive section of the Criminal Procedure Code. Supervision of jails and certification of execution of capital sentences. Authorising parole orders to inmates.

S. 1226, issued during the reign of Someshvara, is important because it throws a new light on the early history of the Chahamana dynasty. One of these 2 rock inscriptions is supposed to be the largest in Asia; the Jain temples, situated about 1.5 km of the south east were built by Mahajan Lala in the time of the Chahamana king Someshvara in 1170 AD. One of them is considered sacred containing a complete small model of a temple inside.
The rock inscriptions have both been dated to 1170 AD. This is a Jain temple of Teerthankar Parshvanath of Jain religion. Bijoliya Teerth Kshetra is supposed to be the place of penance of Lord Parsvanath, place of revolt by Kamattha and place of achieving Kevalgyan and first place of Samavsharan of Lord Parsvanath; some of the world’s great petroglyphs are available here. This place is supposed to be old more than 2750 years; the Kshetra is about 2 km ahead in south – east of Bijoliya Town. In 1169 a famous businessman of Ujjain City Shri Lolark came here during his pilgrimage, saw a dream in night and came to know about the ancient idol of Lord Parsvanath. According to dream in the next morning he dug the place near a pond and thus a magnificent ancient idol of Lord Parsvanath appeared, some other idols of goddess Ambika, Shri Dharnendra & Kshetrapal were found; this temple was completed in 1169 and these idols were installed in this temple on the day Falgun Krishna 3, Thursday of V. S. 1226. This is Panchayatan Mandir surrounded by a rampart.
Atishaya – In year 1858 some Englishmen come here and saw the rampart surrounding the temple and vast petroglyphs, they thought about the hidden treasure here. So they applied mines of explosives around the petroglyph. Before they fire the explosive dense flocks of honey bees attacked on them and they were compelled to run away, at the same time milk flooded out of mines. In 1901 a wonder happened. Seeing the temple without a principal deity, devotees thought that a basement there might contain an idol of principal deity Lord Parsvanath; this was told to the king. Devotees and other persons went to the temple; the stone was removed and digging started, but a terrible white King Cobra appeared by the southern gate and stayed there. In result all the persons returned from the excavation site in vain. Ebenezer Secondary School, Established in 1996 by Mr. P. M Mathew Sanskar Bharti Sr. Secondary School. Bijoliya A. V. S.
