Kalat Division, Pakistan

Kalat Division, also known as Qalat Division, is an administrative region within Balochistan Province, Pakistan. The division’s administrative center is located in Khuzdar, and it covers an expansive area of 140,612 square kilometers.

In 2015, the Balochistan Assembly passed a unanimous resolution urging the provincial government to create a new division called Rakhshan Division. This proposed division would encompass the districts of Nushki, Chagai, Kharan, and Washuk, which were previously part of the Quetta and Kalat divisions.
