Initially, just after trifurcation this department started its function with only two circles, six works divisions ( including drilling division at Pasighat) and 13 sub-divisions. Till today, this department has been unable to set-up full-fledged infrastructures for the smooth functioning of the department, due to meagre allocation of the fund. Despite having constraints, this department has created one post of CE, 3 circles (namely Itanagar , Daporijo and Namsai Circle) and 14 divisions (i.e. one Division in each district and one drilling division at Pasighat). In order to facilitates proper execution of the projects , attempt has been made to create minimum required nos. of sub-divisions all over the state and thereby the total sub-divisions created till today is 42. Due to paucity of fund the Sub-Divisions, Divisions & Circles which are already created are under-staffed and other necessary infrastructures such as buildings, vehicles, etc, could not be provided adequately.
