Under the Collector are the Prant Officers who are either Assistant Collectors (Indian Administrative Service Officers) or District Deputy Collectors (Members of the Maharashtra Civil Service). There are two prants, viz. Dhulia and Nandurbar in the district. In addition to two Prant Officers there is one Resident Deputy Collector.

The Prant Officers form the connecting link between the Mamlatdars or Mahalkaris and the Collector. A Prant Officer exercises all the powers conferred on the Collector by the Land Revenue Code and by any other law in force or by executive orders, in regard to the talukas and mahals in his charge, except such powers as the Collector may specially reserve to himself.
