History[edit]

Kot Qadir was named after Lambardar Ghulam Qadir Khan Qurai Balouch.

Mailsi Tehsil was created in 1849. In 1881, a series of changes were made with the object of enlarging the Shujabad Tehsil and decreasing the Mailsi charge: sixty villages in the vicinity of Kahror Pakka were transferred from the Mailsi to the Lodhran Tehsil and in 1897, forty-six villages were transferred from Lodhran to Shujabad while 104 villages east of Kahror Pakka were shifted from Mailsi in compensation. Kahror Pakka and Dunya Pur were a part of Mailsi and were annexed to Lodhran in 1924. Mailsi was declared to be a town committee in 1924 and upgraded to a sub division in 1935, but demoted to a Tehsil in 1942. It was then upgraded to a Municipaerl Committee in 1953, and declared a Tehsil municipal administration on August 14, 2001.
