History of administrative districts in Kanpur Division

Kanpur division was earlier part of the Allahabad division. In the year, 2000, the Mayawati government did a major reshuffle of the Allahabad division, and a separate Kanpur division was created.

The Kanpur district itself was bifurcated into Kanpur Dehat and Kanpur Nagar. Kanpur Dehat was renamed as Ramabai Nagar, after Ramabai (1896-1935), the wife of Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar. In 2012 the name was changed back to Kanpur Dehat (though the 2011 Indian census uses the name "Kanpur Dehat").
