One of the notable ideas is that after the partition of the country in 1947, the then-District Magistrate “Syed Mujtaba Ali” changed the name of Nobodip or Nodia to ‘Kushtia’. Also, many people think that at one time the area was famous for playing ‘Kusti’, hence the name ‘Kustia’ and after that, it was called ‘Kushtia’. Again, many people think that the word ‘kuntha’ (main cash crop) is derived from the word kunthia and from this kunthia the name Kushtia originates.
When King Pratapaditya fell to the Mughal forces, Kushtia became part of the Mughal Empire in 161 AD. Except for Kushtia subdivision during the English period; The rest of Greater Kushtia belonged to the zamindri of the state of Rajshahi. Kushtia subdivision was elevated in 173 AD during the reign of Governor Sir Peter Grant. Kumarkhali and Khoksa police stations were included in the Kushtia subdivision in 181 AD. Until the partition of India in 1947, Kushtia was included in the Nodia district. After the partition of India, Nodia district of Bengal was divided; Later (October 1956) the name ‘Kushtia’ was changed to ‘Nadia’.
