After the stabilisation of the Permanent Settlement of Lord Cornwallis, the earlier administrative divisions of ‘chaklas’ were replaced by districts, which were divided into sub divisions. In 1846, Bud Bud subdivision was created. In the subsequent year, Katwa, Raniganj, Jahanabad (later Arambag), and Bardhaman Sadar subdivisions were formed. In 1860, Kalna subdivision was formed. The six subdivisions were part of Bardhaman district.
