The district was announced on 28 September 2011 and created by the state government on 23 July 2012 as one of three new districts in the state. At the time of its creation, the state government decided to name the new district "Bhimnagar" in honour of the social reformer, Bhimrao Ambedkar. However, massive protests broke out in Sambhal town and the adjoining rural areas against the move to give a new name to the ancient town.[1] Sambhal had been known by the same name for over five hundred years, had been an important town in medieval India, and had never had any connection with Bhimrao Ambedkar, a dalit icon. The protests against renaming the town were successful and the government had to revert to the old name of Sambhal.[2]
