The headquarter of Udham Singh Nagar is situated at Rudrapur.
According to Historians, hundreds of years ago village Rudrapur was established by a devotee of lord Rudra or by Hindu tribal chief called Rudra, which has passed through phases of development to take the shape of city Rudrapur. The importance of Rudrapur has increased as it is the head quarter of district Udham Singh Nagar. There is a saying that Rudrapur was named after king Rudra Chandra.
Udham Singh Nagar was a portion of district Nainital before the Tarai belt was separated to form the present Udham Singh Nagar on 30th September 1995. In the past, this land which is full of forest land was neglected till 1948 due to harsh climate. Marshy lands, extreme heat, rains which lasted for months, a place full of wild animals, diseases and no means of transportation prevented the human race to form a colony here. Now due to the efforts of Government and people, this land is the modern agricultural, educational and industrial hub of Uttarakhand. The district of Udham Singh Nagar is an agro-industrial district. Agriculture based industries are found throughout the district in all blocks and tehsils. With the upcoming of SIDCUL different industries exist in IIE at Pantnagar and Sitarganj.
