It is a major industrial and educational center in Buldhana district. Malkapur is known for producing cotton. In the British era it was known as the "white gold of Vidarbha."

Malkapur also has many dal mills, and a major agricultural industry specializing in mahyco and ankur seeds. Chemical plants are also situated at MIDC. Malkapur is a well-known grain and cloth market due to its proximity to Madhya Pradesh. It is located on Hajira - Kolkatta National Highway 6.

Malkapur is one of the biggest producer of cotton. Cotton is called " Pandhare Sone" which means White Gold. It is the most important crop in this region.

Old Town

The old town was wholly encompassed by a fort wall. Here is Oldest masajid call Jama Masajid Built at the Time of Auranzeb and we can see all the art and designs of Mughal age. This Masajid situated at bank of Nalganga River. And Nowadays the area called Mohanpura/and kazipura Kazis 181. The family of the Malkapur Kazi is one of some distinction. Sir Alfred Lyall wrote of it as follows in 1870: ' The family of the Malkapur Kazi has, by a succession of prudent marriages, managed to secure to its present representative a concentration of ecclesiastical alienations, through a process which might be illustrated by conceiving Cathedral lands to have become in the seventeenth century heritable possessions of the chapter, and a frequent intermarriage of Canons' families to have ensued.' The present representative, Khwaja Faizuddin, holds the village of Hingna in jagir right said to have been granted by the Emperors Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb in 1039 Hijri. (1629 A.D.). He is a big landed proprietor owning 1,429 acres (5.78 km2) of inam land in 16 villages, and 1,444 acres (5.84 km2) of khalsa land in 21 villages. The Kazi carries on the ordinary duties of his diocese through agents who receive a share of the fees but he himself officiates at the ' Id Khutba and Bakri Id ' at Malkapur. His maternal uncle, Badruddin, is a pensioned Tahsildar, and his younger brother is practising as a pleader at Akola. Kazi Salauddin, of Nandura. is a public-spirited citizen who has lately been given the title of Khan Bahadur for the service rendered by him in the inoculation campaign against plague. He is an Honorary Magistrate. Kazi Najm-ud-din of Khamgaon holds various inams and sanads. His great-grandfather. Kazi Muhammad Desoddin, protected Balapur with the assistance of the Muhammadans from the attack of Raghuji Bhonsla. His grandfather, Muhammad Jafar, was a Subahdar. The family has been residing at Balapur and Khamgaon since the time of Aurangzeb.

History of Malkapur

One of the old gates of the rampart of dressed stones had an inscription to the effect that it was erected in 1729 during the reign of Muhammad Malikkhan. Malkapur is mentioned in Ain-i-Akbari as the headquarters of a paragana in the sarkar of Narnala. The town is said to have been founded about five centuries back by a prince of the Faruqi house of Khandesh and is said to have been named by him after the princess, Malika, his daughter. But the story is improbable as no record of any journey in this direction by Miran Ghani Adil Khan, the Faruqi prince of the period has yet been traced. In 1761 the town was rich enough to pay Rs. 60,000 to the army of Raghunath Rav for exemption from plunder. The Nizams used to keep a force of about 20,000 men in this frontier district of their dominions. Daulatrav Shinde and Raghuji Bhosle were encamped near Malkapur when the British envoy Colonel Collins, after presenting General Wellesley's ultimatum, quitted Shinde's camp in 1803.

Malkapur was the scene of several petty battles between zamin-dars, rural talukdars, Rajputs and Musalmans, during the period between the beginning of the nineteenth century and the Assignment of Berar to the East India Company in 1853. The following extract taken from the Old Buldhana District Gazetteer published in 1910 gives an interesting account of one of these fights which took place in 1837.

'In 1837 a Musalman shot dead a Rajput of Dattala who had insulted him at the Pimpalgaon fair. The act generated a blood feud, and twelve years later Lal Singh of Dattala, without warning or fresh provocation, assembled a band of nearly three thousand Hindus to avenge his relation's death. The fanatical Sikhs of Nanded on the Godavari sent a contingent of five hundred men and the first news of the impending attack came to the Musalmans of Malkapur from their friends at Patur, who sent hasty word that this formidable company was marching hy. The Rajputs and Sikhs assaulted Malkapur. There was the usual street lighting, burning, sacking, and slaying, though not many lives were lost, and the Muhammedans were worsted. This was, however, only the first game of the rubber, for the Musahnans were flocking to the fray from neighbouring towns; from Burhanpur especially a strong body had set out. The police and the local militia under the talukdar were utterly powerless, but detachments of the Nizam's army [ The Hyderabad contingent.] under Major Arthur Wyndham, then arrived, and found Malkapur empty and deserted. The Musal-mans had been driven out and the Rajputs had retreated to Dattala, where they afterwards had a skirmish with the troops.
