History of North Tripura District
dates back to the year 1761, when the princely state of Tripura was gained control of, by the British. However, the hill territory was reigned by the Maharaja till the year 1871, since no agent was appointed to rule this portion of India.
On 13th August, 1947, the North Tripura
District officially became a part of the Indian union and on 9th September, the following year an agreement was signed to confirm the merging of Indian union and the North Tripura district. Eventually, on 15th October, 1949 Tripura was finally taken over.
By 1st September 1970, Tripura was divided into three districts. Initially, the North Tripura District functioned in the sub divisional officer's office at Kailashahar as well as in Kumarghat
partly. However, the entire office was moved to Kailashahar later. On 13th November, 1987 the Collectorate was shifted to Gournagar's newly erected complex. A new district named 'Dhalai District' has been formed out of the North Tripura District on 14th April, 1995. Its district headquarters is based at Ambassa.
