History of Khagaria District
is not very old. Earlier, it was a part of Munger District
, as a sub-division. The sub-division of Khagaria was created in the year 1943-44. It was upgraded as a district in the year 1981 under the notification of state government. As a sub-division of Munger District, Khagaria was the youngest, in terms of creation of sub-division, before independence of the country. The other three sub-divisions were Munger sadar, Begusarai
and Jamui district
. Jamui sub-division was created on 22nd of July 1864 and Begusarai sub-division on 14th of February 1870.
Early history of Khagaria District states that the territory formed part of the region of Aryan settlers. Historical accounts also state that Munger came into prominence, in the year 1762, when Kasim Ali Khan made it his capital instead of Murshidabad district
. Further, with the extension of the British dominions, Munger ceased to be an important frontier post. The existence of Munger, as a separate executive centre is believed to exist since the year 1812. The subdivision of Jamui was formed in the year 1864, Begusarai sub-division was established in 1870 and in 1943-44 Khagaria subdivision was established with headquarters at Khagaria. Khagaria was created as a separate sub-division mainly because of the difficulties arising out of a lack of easy means of communications.
