The constituency was created for the first general elections in newly independent Bangladesh, held in 1973.
Ahead of the 2014 general election, the Election Commission reduced the boundaries of the constituency. Previously it had included Comilla Dakshin Municipality and five union parishads of Comilla Sadar Dakshin Upazila: Bara Para, Bijoypur, Chouara, Purba Jorekaran, and Paschim Jorekaran, but had excluded one union parishad of Barura Upazila: Chitadda.

Akbar Hossain died in June 2006. To fill the vacant seat, the Election Commission planned a by-election for 7 September. The High Court, however, blocked the by-election on the grounds that it would be wasteful, as the parliament's tenure was due to end in October with the formation of a caretaker government in preparation for the next general election.
