HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from a Comilla constituency when the former Comilla District was split into three districts: Brahmanbaria, Comilla, and Chandpur.

Ahead of the 2008 general election, the Election Commission redrew constituency boundaries to reflect population changes revealed by the 2001 Bangladesh census.[3] The 2008 redistricting altered the boundaries of the constituency.[4]

Ahead of the 2018 general election, the Election Commission expanded the boundaries of the constituency by adding two union parishads of Nabinagar Upazila: Barikandi and Chalimganj.[2][5][6]
