The district also includes Amla, which serves as a separate headquartersNameDuring the early 20th century, Betul was known as Badnur. It derives its present name from its surrounding district, which was named for its former headquarters at Betul Bazar, a small town about 5km to its south. Betul—literally "without" (be) "cotton" (tool)—was named for its position outside the area's cottonfields.HistoryNearby Kherla was formerly the seat of an independent kingdom in the medieval and early modern period. Under Company Rule, its fort was permitted to fall into ruin. Badnur became the headquarters of Betul District in 1822.
