In the olden times, Kozhikode district was part of the Malabar district which also includes Kannur, Malappuram, Palakkad and Wayanad. Calicut was the administrative head of the Malabar districts which were under Madras Presidency. When India gained Independence, Madras Presidency became the Madras state. Later in 1956, the Malabar district together with state Travancore-Cochin and Kasaragod district formed the state of Kerala. Since Malabar district was too large for controlling the administration it was divided into the district Kozhikode, Kannur and Palakkad. The Kozhikode district at that time had 5 taluks namely Vadakara, Koyilandy, Kozhikode, Ernad, and Tirur. Later when the district Malappuram was formed, Ernad and Tirur taluks became a part of it.
