The Nizam following the treaty of 1853 assigned Amravati District with the rest of the Berar to
the East India Company. After this province was assigned to the Company, it was divided into two districts, South Berar with its headquarters at Hingoli with the neighbouring region was restored to the Nizam and North Berar was reconstituted in to East Berar with headquarters at Akola.
In 1864, the district of Yeotmal was separated from Amravati. In 1867 the district of Ellichpur, which at first included the Tahsil of Morshi, subsequently restored to Amravati, was formed.
In 1903, the Treaties of Assignment were superseded by an agreement under which the Nizam leased Berar to the Government of India in perpetuity. Berar was joined to the central provinces in 1903 to form the enlarged province of the central provinces and Berar.
With the recognition of States in 1956, Amravati District, along with the other districts of the Vidarbha region, was included in the then Bilingual Bombay State. Since the bifurcation of the Bombay state in to Maharashtra and Gujarat in 1960, Amravati, along with the other districts of Vidarbha formed one of the districts of Maharashtra.
