Fazilka is a Town and a municipal council in Punjab, India. In 2011, it was made the headquarters of the newly created Fazilka district. The Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline or TAPI gas pipeline project originating in Turkmenistan will have its last station in Fazilka.HistoryThe municipality of Fazilka was formed with Punjab Government Notification No. 486, on 10 December 1885. The town was added to the Ferozepur district in 1884. On 27 July 2011, Fazilka was declared a District by the Government of Punjab with Gazette Notification No. 1/1/2011-RE-II(I)/14554.Fazilka, like many towns situated on the Indo-Pakistani border, has suffered difficulties dating back to the time of the Partition of India in 1947. The Radcliffe Line, the border recommended by departing British colonial authorities, divides natural resources, houses, and people. The Satluj River, which is a common source of water, is currently a border between the two countries.Before partition, 50% of Fazilka's population was Muslim. All of them left India for Pakistan in 1947. Most of the villages around Fazilka are dominated by Muslim families, mainly the Bodla, Watto, Sahoo Rajpoot, Kalya Rajpoot and Chistis clans.Many people from Fazilka pay an annual visit to Katasraj - a Hindu Holy city in Pakistan - usually in August.
