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 the name of Ramabai (1896-1935), the wife of Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar. It is famous that the secret of success in life of B.R. Ambedkar was his wife Ramabai. In 2012 the name was changed back to Kanpur Dehat.
