This constituency has been known by different names in its history. For the 1951 and every election since 1977 it has been known as Bengaluru North. For the 1957 and 1962 elections it was known as Bengaluru City. For the 1967 and 1971 elections it formed a constituency jointly with Bengaluru South and was known as Bengaluru. From 1951–73, this constituency resided in Mysuru State. On 1 November 1973, Mysuru State was renamed as Karnataka.[2]
