Novo Miloševo (Serbian Cyrillic: Ново Милошево) is a village located in the Novi Bečej municipality, in the Central Banat District of Serbia. It is situated in the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. The village has a Serb ethnic majority (76.09%) with a present Hungarian minority (14.57%) and its population numbering 6,763 people (2002 census).
The village was formed after the Second World War when former villages of Beodra and Dragutinovo were joined into one single village known as Novo Miloševo. Before 1918, Dragutinovo was known as Karlovo.
The village of Karlovo was established in 1751 by former Serb frontiersmen. In 1918, the name of the village was changed to Dragutinovo, after Dragutin Ristić, colonel of Serbian army, whose unit occupied the village. In 1946, Dragutinovo and Beodra were joined into one single village known as Novo Miloševo, after Miloš Popov Klima, partisan soldier born in Dragutinovo.
