Mysore State ( ಮೈಸೂರು ರಾಜ್ಯ ) was a separate state within the Union of India from 1948 until 1956 with Mysore as its capital. The state was considerably enlarged in 1956 when it became a linguistically homogeneous Kannada-speaking state in 1956, within the Union of India. It was subsequently incorporated into the state of Karnataka.
The Kingdom of Mysore // was one of the three largest princely states within the former British Empire of India. Upon India's gaining its independence in 1947, Maharaja of Mysore Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar signed the instrument of accession, incorporating his realm with the Union of India on 15 August 1947. The territories of the erstwhile princely state of Mysore were then reconstituted into a state within the Union of India.
In 1956, the Government of India effected a comprehensive re-organisation of provincial boundaries, based upon the principle of shared language. As a result of the States Reorganisation Act on 1 November 1956, the Kannada-speaking districts of Belgaum (except Chandgad taluk), Bijapur, Dharwar, and North Canara were transferred from Bombay State to Mysore State. Bellary district was transferred from Andhra State. South Canara and Udupi districts were transferred from Madras State and the Koppal, Raichur, Gulbarga and Bidar districts from Hyderabad State. Also small Coorg State was merged, becoming a district of Mysore State.. The state was renamed as Karnataka on 1 November 1973.
