Shakargarh is a Tehsil headquarter of District Narowal. The total area of this Tehsil is approximately 1272 square kilometers. Shakargarh was the gateway of Mughals entering Gurdaspur and going to Delhi and – it also served as a resting point for travelers to Kashmir. Prior to the independence of Pakistan, Shakargarh was a part of District Gurdaspur (now in India). Under the Radcliff Award, Shakargarh Tehsil was transferred to Pakistan and attached with District Sialkot. However, with the creation of Narowal District on 1st July, 1991, Tehsil Shakargarsh was attached with this newly created district. The economy of Shakargarh is based on Agriculture. Wheat, sugarcane and top quality rice are the popular crops of this area.
