During the time of king Rajendra Bir Bikram Shah and prime minister Bhimsen Thapa, Nepal was divided into 10 districts. All areas east of Dudhkoshi River were one district, Dhankuta.

During the time of prime minister Bir Shumsher Jang Bahadur Rana (1885-1901) Nepal was divided into total 32 districts. Hilly region had 20 districts and Terai had 12 districts. Nepal had two centers Palpa and Dhankuta. Dhankuta was the center of East Nepal and Palpa was the center of West Nepal.

District administration (1901-1951):

For administration purpose the country had been divided into 35 districts. Each had a headquarters and Bada Haqim (District Administrator) as its head. The districts were classified into A, B and C. 7 districts fell in A category, 9 in B and 16 in category C.

District administration (1951-1960):

During 1951 to 1960 no remote changes were made in district administration in Nepal. Only small changes made by king that couldn't help to keep continue the administration system.

District Panchayat (1960-1990):

After 1960 the administration in general and the district administration in particular underwent a sea changes. King referred to the reorganisation of traditional 35 districts into 14 zones and 75 development Districts.

District Panchayat was one of the four administrative divisions of Nepal during the Panchayat System (1962-1990).
