In 1837, Sirsa and Rania parganas were taken out of the then Hariyana district and alongwith Guda and Malaut parganas were formed into separate district called Bhatiana. The pargana of Darba from Hissar district and the small pargana of Rori confiscated from erstwhile princely state of Nabha were transferred to Bhatiana in 1838 and 1847, respectively2. In 1884, Wattu pargana running upto Satluj was added to Bhatiana district3. The whole of Delhi territory alongwith district of Bhatiana and Hissar was transferred to Punjab in 1858 and the district of Bhatiana was renamed as Sirsa.

The Sirsa district which comprising three tahsils; Sirsa, Dabwali and Fazilka was abolished1 in 1884 and Sirsa tahsil consisting of 199 villages and 126 villages of Dabwali tahsil formed one tahsil and the same was merged with Hissar district . Then Sirsa tahsil was formed a sub-division of Hissar district .

In 1968, Sirsa tahsil was bifurcated into Sirsa and Dabwali tahsils and on September 1, 1975, Sirsa & Dabwali tahsils were constituted into a separate district with headquarters at Sirsa.
