Wazirabad Tehsil (Urdu: ‎), is an administrative subdivision (tehsil) of Gujranwala District in the Punjab province of Pakistan. The tehsil is headquartered at the city of Wazirabad and is administratively subdivided into 36 Union Councils.[2]

History

During colonial rule the tehsil was formed as a subdivision of the Gujranwala District of British Punjab. The population according to the 1901 census was 183,205 a slight increase from the 1891 census (183,606). According to the 1901 census the main towns were Wazirabad (population, 18,069), Ramnagar (7,121), Sodhra (5,050), and Akalgarh (4,961) - the tehsil also contained 254 villages. The land revenue and cesses in 1903-,4 amounted to RS. 2,70,000.[3]

The Imperial Gazetteer of India (written over a century ago during the rule of the British) describes the tehsil as follows: "The tahs?l consists of a riverain belt along the Chenab rich and highly developed tract along the Si?lkot border, with abundant well-irrigation; and the level uplands known as the B?ngar. The head-works of the Chen?b Canal are at Kh?nk? in this tahs?l."[3]
