Ladwa was lapsed to the British Government in 1846.; Kaithal in 1849 whereas Thanesar(only a part)was got by the British in 1850.The British Government organised these lapsed territories into the Thanesar district in 1849. The district was broken up in 1862 and the area distributed into two districts, Karnal and Ambala. The parganas of Guhla, Pehowa, Kaithal, Indri and a part of Thanesar were included in Karnal district and remainder was allotted to Ambala district .
