Before 1920s


Ahmednagar Fort, in Ahmednagar city was the centre of the British cantonment used by artillery and infantry units, primarily between 1849 and 1921. In 1913 a Remount Depot was established to house 500 horses. In 1921, six Armoured Car companies were based there and in 1924 a Royal Tank Corps School was established at Ahmednagar. This School was the forerunner of the Fighting Vehicle School, and the area is now occupied by the Indian Armament & Electronics Regiment. Most of the barracks and bungalows which existed are still in use.

A remote hillside about six miles outside the city at Arangaon was leased by the British Indian Army towards the end of the First World War to house two (plague) segregation camps, supervised by the 2nd/102nd King Edward's Own Grenadiers and the 2nd/128th Pioneers of the Indian Army in 1919 on what later became known as Meherabad Hill. By 1921, during the famine of that year, the land was acquired by Kaikhushru and Gulmai Irani.
