Districts and Administration in Sikkim: Sikkim is divided into four districts and has eight towns and nine sub divisions. Each district is governed by a Central Government appointed District Collector, who is in charge of administration in civilian areas in the district. Since Sikkim falls in a sensitive border area, large areas of the state are under the Indian Army. Many areas of the state are also restricted and permits are required to visit them.
