Gen.Munro attacked Belgaum and took it from the Peshwas on 20-03-1818 & after 22 days of resistance, the Belgaum fort fell on 12-04-1818.

Belgaum was included in the Dharwad collectorate but a separate Belgaum collectorate was made in 1836.  Ravenscroft took charge on May 3 as the new collector of Belgaum. In 1838, Belgaum was later made as a District head quarter.
