Ranga Reddy district (abbr. R. R. district; formerly Hyderabad Rural district) is a district in the Indian state of Telangana. The district headquarters is located at Lakdikapool, Hyderabad.[1][3] The district was named after the former deputy chief minister of the United Andhra Pradesh, K. V. Ranga Reddy.[4] The district shares boundaries with Nalgonda, Yadadri Bhuvanagiri, Hyderabad, Medchal–Malkajgiri, Nagarkurnool, Mahabubnagar, Sangareddy and Vikarabad districts.

History[edit]

The district was formed in 1978 when it was split from Hyderabad district.[5][6] Originally named Hyderabad Rural district, it was renamed after Konda Venkata Ranga Reddy, a freedom fighter who fought for the independence of Telangana from the Nizams and who went on to become the deputy chief minister of Andhra Pradesh.[7] In 2016, it was carved out during the district's reorganisation to create the new Vikarabad district and Medchal–Malkajgiri district.[4]
