The demand for a seperate administrative area in the district is as old as, since 1907.
The history of a seperate adminstrative area has the name of various associations and political parties like Hillmen's Associations and All India Gorkha Legue. It is also recorded somewhere in the history that just after the Independence of India two members of CPI demanded to Pandit Jawahar lal Nehru for a seperate country called Gorkhastan comprising of Darjeeling some parts of the the plainland and Sikkim. (this report cannot be confirmed). The All India Gorkha Legue demanded the Darjeeling to be bought under the Central Rule as an Union Territory.
