No record is accessible to show how the name KALAHANDI began. It was recently known by the name Karond. As indicated by Lieutenant Elliot, Deputy Commissioner, Raipur(1856), “This reliance is referred to just on the Nagpur side as Kharonde (Karond ), the Oriya name being Kalahandi, and as there is no spot or town comparing the previous name apparently to be a defilement of the last option, however it has been initially placed in the records.”

In Koraput and Bastar line region one runs over such names, with indistinguishable phonetic varieties, which teamed up the above assumption.
