Amravati District was given to the East Indian Company in the year 1853, by the Nizam, along with the rest of the Berar. After being assigned so, it was divided into two separate districts. One of the districts was South Berar, which has its headquarters at Hingoli. This district, along with the neighboring region, was later restored to the Nizam. The second district to be formed was East Berar, which was nothing but the reconstituted North Berar, which had its headquarters at Akola.

The year 1864 saw the district of Yeotmal being separated from Amravati. After 39 years (1903), another agreement was signed by the Nizam, superseding the previous one, under which Berar was leased to the Government of India infinitely. It was during this year only that the district was attached to the central provinces. India attained independence in 1947 and nine years later (1956), Bombay State was formed and Amravati district, along with other districts of Vidarbha region, were included in it.

The state of Bombay was divided into the two states of Maharashtra and Gujarat in the year 1960. With this, Amravati as well as the other districts of Vidharbha region came under the former state. Located at a distance of approximately 156 km from Nagpur city, Amravati is witnessing a great deal of development. It is also growing as an industrial center, with its cotton mills touching new heights of advancement. Whether from religious point of view or from sightseeing point of view, Amravati is definitely a place worth visiting in Maharashtra.
