Srikakulam District was carved out in 1950 by bifurcating it from Visakhapatnam District, it remained unaffected in its territorial jurisdiction for quite some time. But in November, 1969 the District lost 63 Villages from Saluru Taluk and 44 Villages from Bobbili Taluk on account of their transfer to the then newly constituted Gajapathinagaram Taluk of Visakhapatnam District. Again in May, 1979, the District had undergone major territorial changes on account of the formation of new District with head quarters at Vizianagaram which involved transfer of Salur, Bobbili, Parvathipuram and Cheepurupalli Taluks to the new District. The District is blessed with perennial rivers, the Nagavali, the Vamsadhara, the Mahindra Tanaya and the Bahuda. Administratively the District is divided into 38 Mandals under three Revenue Divisions Viz., Srikakulam, Palakonda & Tekkali.
