Introduction



Shakargarh is a Tehsil of Narowal District situated in the Punjab province of Pakistan. This Tehsil lies at the East-Nothern border of Pakistan with India. This is the only one Tehsil of Pakistan that touches its border with India and Jammu Kashmir as well. One of the salient feature of its geographical location is that sun rays first fall on this area and Pakistan’s Standard Time has been measured using it as reference. The exact location which is taken as time reference lies at village Inayat Pur Grrotta situated near the town Ikhlas Pur. Second salient feature about which majority of pakistanis are unaware is that Ravi river first enters in Pakistan at this tehsil and after which it again enters in India and then Pakistan near Lahore.

Before the independence of Pakistan, Shakargarh Tehsil was part of District Gurdaspur which with its majority of tehsils except shakargar lies in India at present. Although District Gurdaspur was one of those subcontinent district which have Muslim majority. According to the initial accord in which Muslim majority areas have to be transferred to Pakistan. In order to sought  terrestrial path to Jummu & Kashmir Indian forced the British administration to include District Gurdaspur in India territory. Finally under Radcliffe Award, the whole district of Gurdaspur except Shakargarh tehsil was announced to be part of India. River Ravi was taken as the Line of Control in this area between India and Pakistan. 

Initially Shakargarh tehsil was attached with Sialkot. However, with the creation of Narowal District in 1991, Shakar garh became part of Narowal District. The Tehsil is administratively subdivided into 35 Union Councils, three of which form the tehsil capital Shakargarh. This tehsil has  agriculture land and majority of people are associated with the profession of agriculture. Along with the main crops of wheat and rice, other crops include sugarcane and all types of grains.
