HISTORY
Peth is present in the Nashik district at present. The territory now included in Nasik district was formerly partly in Khandesh district and partly in Ahmednagar district. In 1837- 38 part of Ahmednagar district consisting of Sinnar, Chandor, Dindori, Nashik including Igatpuri and Peth State were made into a sub-collectorate under Ahmednagar. The sub-collectorate of Nashik was, however, abolished in 1856 and its talukas incorporated in Ahmednagar district. In 1869, Nasik was made a full-fledged district, which included Peth state. Peth state became British territory and was made into a sub-division in 1878. There were no major changes in the district or taluka boundaries between 1901 & 1948. First Indian to hold the post of Collector was 36th Collector Mr. Kothawala who was ICS.
