The Municipal Administration and Urban Development department submitted a proposal after examining the representation along with PR and RD department, which submitted resolutions passed by grama panchayats of Gurajala, Jangameswarapuram and Dachepalli and Nadikudi for merger so that they can be upgraded to municipalities. 

Hence, the Collector conferred municipality status on the panchayats. A resident of Dachepalli named M Ganpathi said, that a long pending demand of the public has become reality.  "The village atmosphere will vanish once a civic body is formed in Dachepalli. I wish the area turns peaceful due to greater administration and development."
