Quick History of Himachal Pradesh :

Himachal Pradesh came into being on April 15, 1948 and comprised 30 former hill states. The state of Bilaspur was merged with Himachal Pradesh in 1954. The six original districts were : Mahasu, Sirmaur, Mandi, Chamba, Bilaspur and Kinnaur. On November 1, 1966certain parts of the state of Punjab were transferred to Himachal Pradesh. These comprise the districts of Shimla, Kullu, Kangra and Lahaul and Spiti and parts of Hoshiarpur and Ambala districts. Himachal Pradesh attained full statehood on January 25, 1971 as the 18th State of the Union.

Old Himachal : consists of districts of Chamba, Kinnaur, Bilaspur, Mandi, Sirmaur and Shimla. Actually the capital town Shimla was included in Himachal later, but it has some area from old Himachal.

New Himachal : consists of districts of Kangra, Kullu, Lahaul and Spity, Hamirpur and Una.

( What we see today as Himachal Pradesh is the combination of old Himachal and the new Himachal ).
