History

The History of Poonch District of the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir had four tehsils: Haveli and Mendhar in the east, and Bagh and Sudhanoti in the west. [1]

As a result of the First Kashmir War of 1947, the Haveli tehsil got bifurcated, with the northern half passing into Pakistani control and the southern half remaining in Indian-administered Kashmir. The Pakistani half of the tehsil has now been made into a district.

The Haveli tehsil of the Indian-administered Kashmir was further bifurcated into the present Haveli tehsil and the Mandi tehsil based at Mandi.

Administration

The Haveli tehsil is headquartered at Poonch.
