The North-Western Provinces was an administrative region in British India which succeeded the Ceded and Conquered Provinces and existed in one form or another from 1836 until 1902, when it became the Agra Province within the United Provinces of Agra and Oudh (or U.P.).


It included all divisions of the present-day state of Uttar Pradeshmarker with the exception of the Lucknow and Faizabad division of Awadh. Among other regions included at various times were: the Delhi territory, from 1836 until 1858, when the latter became part of the Punjab provincemarker of British India; Ajmer and Merwara, from 1832 and 1846, respectively, until 1871, when Ajmer-Merwara became a minor province of British India; and the Saugor and Nerbudda Territories from 1853 until 1861, when they were absorbed into the Central Provinces and Berar.


The North Western Provinces was governed by a Lieutenant-Governor, who was appointed by the British East India Company from 1836 to 1858, and by the British Government from 1858 to 1902.

In 1856, after the annexation of Oudh, the North Western Provinces became part of the larger province of North Western Provinces and Oudh. In 1902, the latter province was renamed the United Provinces of Agra and Oudh; in 1904, the region within the new United Provinces corresponding to the North Western Provinces was renamed the Agra Province.
