for the Jatiya Sangsad
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 also included eight union parishads of Rangpur Sadar Upazila: Chandanpat, Darshana, Mominpur, Rjendrapur, Sadya Pushkarni, Satgara, Tamphat, and Tapodhan.
Ahead of the 2018 general election, the Election Commission altered the boundaries of the constituency by removing wards 1 through 8 of Rangpur City Corporation, and adding Rangpur Sadar Upazila.
