Commissioners of Sind

The Commissioner in Sind was the most important government official in the province during the British era. Of the 104 years of rule, 89 years were under their authority. It was also because Sind was during this period a part of the Bombay Presidency. Earlier under Sir Charles Napier and later in 1936, it was a separate province. Therefore, in those times, the same official was known as the governor.
