Giridih Sadar subdivision is an administrative subdivision of the Giridih district in the state of Jharkhand, India.

History

In 1837, according to old British records, Hazaribagh district was divided into 12 police stations (thanas) of which Kharagdiha was one. Kharagdiha PS controlled the whole of what subsequently formed the Giridih subdivision, except Gawan, which had a zamindari thana, the expenses of which were not borne by the British government. A new police station was opened in 1838 at Bagodar on the then new Grand Trunk Road. In 1870, the Giridih subdivision was formed with its headquarters at Karharbari, in the heart of the coal-mining area. In 1871, the railway line from Madhupur to Giridih was laid primarily for coal transportation. At that time police stations in Giridh subdivision included Gawan, Satgawan, Jamua, Deori, Dhanwar, Birni, Giridih, Bengabad, Gandey, Dumri, Nawadih, Pirtand, and Bermo. Later on, Bagodar police station was added to the subdivision and Satgawan was deleted. Giridih district was formed on 6 December 1972. In earlier days it had two subdivisions, Giridih and Bermo. In 1991, at the time of formation of Bokaro district, Bermo subdivision, with Nawadih, Bermo, Gomia and Peterwar, was transferred to the new district.[1]
