Brief About Fatehabad District
The first record of the administrative division of the district is found in Ain-i-Akbri.1 Much of the area lying in the present Hisar district was covered by mahals of Agroha, Ahroni, Barwala, Bhattu, Tohana, Hisar, Fatehabad and Hansi.The mahals formed part of Hisar Feroza Sarkar of the Delhi Subah. With the decline of the Mughal empire, the tract comprising Fatehabad district came under the control of Marathas. The whole of Delhi territory of which the tract formed part, was ceded by the Marathas to the British in 1810. The Delhi territory was divided into two districts, Delhi, directly under the Resident and the outlying district including Hansi, Hisar, Sirsa, Rohtak Panipat and Rewari under the immediate charge of an Assistant- to the Resident. Again in 1819, Delhi territory was divided into 3 districts namely ; the central which included Delhi, southern district comprising Rewari etc. and northwestern district comprising Panipat, Hansi, Hisar, Sirsa and Rohtak. In 1820 the north-western district was sub-divided into 2 separate districts, the northern and the western.The western district included Bhiwani, Hansi, Hisar and Sirsa and its headquarters were at Hansi. In 1824, Rohtak which had previously been under the western district was constituted into a separate district to which Bhiwani was transferred.

The headquarters of the district was shifted from Hansi to Hisar in 1832.

'The district was then divided into 4 tahsils of Hisar, Fatehabad, Hansi and Tosham.

In 1837, Ratia and Tohana parganas were added to the Hisar district and were formed into a separate tahsil of Tohana. The Sirsa tract was detached in 1837 from the Hisar district and placed under a separate officer styled as the Superintendent of Bhatiana. The pargana of Darba and the pargana of Rori were transfeffed to Bhatiana in 1838 and 1847 respectively.

In 1852, the pargana of Ratia was transferred from Tohana tahsil to Fatehabad tahsil and Barwala pargana was detached from Hisar tahsit and was formed into a separate tahsil of Barwala along with Tohana. The whole of Delhi territory alongwith districts of Bhatiana and Hisar were transfeffed to the Punjab in 1858 and the district of Bhatiana was re-named as Sirsa.
In 1861, Bhiwani tahsil was detached from Rohtak and added to Hisar district.' The Tosham tahsil was abolished and added to Bhiwani tahsil in the same year.

The ffisar district gained 24 villages from Meham-Bhiwant tahsil of Rohtak district ; 18 villages including the town of Bhiwani were added to the Bhiwani tahsil and 6 villages to the Hansi tahsil.Besides, 5 villages confiscated from Nawab of Jhaijar and 12 villages received from the Maharaja of Jind, were added to Bhiwani tahsil and Barwala tahsil respectively.

The district derives its name from its headquarters town Fatehabad The town was founded by Firuz Shah Tughlak in the 14th century.  He named it after his son Fateh Khan,  as Fatehabad.The Fatehabad district was carved out of Hisar district on 15-07-1997.  Mr.P.C.Bidhan was the first Deputy Commissioner and Mr.Manoj Yadava was the first Superintendent of Police
