It contains one town, HYDERĀBĀD (population, 69,378), the District and tāluka headquarters; and 98 villages. The population in 1901 was 138,021, compared with 122,507 in 1891. The density, 347 persons per square mile, is largely above the District average. Land revenue and cesses in 1903-4 amounted to about 200,000. A small limestone range, known as the Ganjo hills, runs nearly due south parallel to the Indus for about 14 miles (23 km). The tāluka is compact in shape, and produces bijra, green gram, wheat, and cotton. It is irrigated wholly by canals.||”|
