Brief About South Kannada District

About District
Alupas ruled the DK district till 14th century. Later the district had been divided into small pieces and Bairas, Choutas, Ajilas ruled independently or under the Vijayanagara rule. Later it came under Keladi administration but in 1763, after Hyderali defeated Keladi rulers, he took over Coastal Karnataka and handed over it to his son Tippu Sultan. But in 1799 the Shrirangapattana was taken over by British and with this even Dakshina Kannada had gone to British. They merged both Uttara Kannada and Dakshina Kannada and brought it under Madras presidency. Later in 1862, due to certain political compulsions, they divided the district and Uttara Kannada was transferred to Bombay presidency.

Dakshina Kannada district, known as Kanara district remained with Madras presidency. History reveals that it was on July 8, 1799, Kanara Revenue district was formed and Major Munroe was the first district collector. In 1896 it had included only Mangalore, Kundapura, Uppinangadi and Kasargod taluks. In 1912 even Karkala Taluk was merged with Dakshina Kannada. In 1954 Belthangady taluk was brought under this district. Till 1956 the district was with Madras province and after formation of Karnataka state in 1956, November 1, DK district had become part of Karnataka. In 1966 Puttur taluk had been divided into Puttur and Sullia.

Till 1998, the district included Udupi, Karkala and Kundapura taluks with it. But after bifurcation of the district into Udupi and Dakhshina Kannada for administrative purpose, these three taluks have gone to Udupi. But culture, tradition and emotional bond of the people still remains the same. The district had responded actively to the Freedom struggle. As part of the struggle national leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Annie Besant and others had visited the district and had addressed the public gatherings. The great freedom fighters like Karnad Sadashiva Rao, N S Kille, R S Shenoy, Kota Ramakrishna Karanth, and many others participated actively in the freedom movement. In addition the newspapers like Rashtrabandhu, Navayuga and many other newspapers published articles encouraging the people to take up freedom movement.
