About AP Districts NELLORE

Head Quarters: Nellore More Info : www.nellore.ap.gov.in

Sri Potti Sriramulu Nellore District is famous for high paddy yield, and so it got its name from “nelli”, an equivalent word for paddy in Tamil. It was earlier known as Nellore district. In June 2008, the government of Andhra Pradesh officially renamed the district as Potti Sri Ramulu Nellore District after the freedom fighter and revolutionary Potti Sri Ramulu, who died fasting in an attempt to achieve the formation of a separate state for the Telugu people. The district was situated between 79º 9′ and 80º 14’E, of the eastern longitudes and 13º 25′ and 15º 55’N, of northern latitudes. The district is bounded on the north by the Prakasam District, on the south by Tamil Nadu state and Chittor District, on the east by the Bay of Bengal, and on the west by YSR District. The district has population of 29,66,082 as per the 2011 census which accounts for 3.50% of the total population of the State with 11.15% decadal growth.
