           In old records, there are frequent uses of Chandi Pargana. Chandi Pargana or Chandi Pahad was part of Garhwal kingdom and was part of Gangawar (East of Ganga) in 1815. The south east of Chandi Pargana was up to Pailori bank where it meets at Kharasot.  The whole area was dense forest of Sal and bamboo trees.
        In 1817, British government brought seven occupied villages and nine unoccupied villages ranging from Anjanighat to Rishikesh under Dehradun. Trail recorded the balance portion under Garhwal in 1820. In 1828, the portion of Chandi Pargana of Garhwal district was brought under Dehradun district. Some portion ws brought under Saharanpur and Moradabad (later on Bijnor) districts. (Dabral)
 Due to dacoits, highly disease porn region and attack by wild animals; the population used to decrease all the time.  
 The land survey (Paimas) of 1836-37 states that there were very thin human settlements in eleven villages out of twenty five villages. There was no human settlement in eleven villages at all.
 There was another land survey in 1840 and the situation was almost same. The frequent dacoit attacks were main factor for non human settlements.  Therefore, in 1842, British government transferred villages of plains of Chandighat of Garhwal (present Pauri Garhwal) and Mahubakot under Bijnor region.
 Chandi Pargana witnessed frequent changes for judiciary and revenue administration too.
