(North-West Provinces)

The North-Western Provinces was a province of British India between 1836 and 1902. It succeeded the Ceded and Conquered Provinces and, as the Agra Province, made up most of the United Provinces of Agra and Oudh that replaced the North-Western Provinces in 1902.

During its existence it also included the Delhi territory (1836-1858), Ajmer (1832-1871), Merwara (1846-1871) and the Saugor and Nerbudda Territories (1853-1861).
