The town,(Malkapur),is said to have been founded about Six Centuries back by a Prince of the Faruqi dynasty of Khandesh "Mohammad Malik Khan", which got independence from Bahamani Sultanate in 1399 and is said to have been named by him after the princess, Malika, his daughter. One of the old gates of the rampart of dressed stones had an inscription to the effect that it was erected in 1729. Malkapur is mentioned in Ain-i-Akbari as the Headquarters of a Paragana in the Sarkar of Narnala. 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 Raghunathrao,who later became a ruling Peshwa from 1773-1774, 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 Lord Wellesley's ultimatum, quit Shinde's camp in 1803.

Malkapur was the scene of several petty battles between zamin-dars, rural talukdars, Rajputs and Muslims during the period between the beginning of the nineteenth century and the Assignment of Berar to the East India Company in 1853.

As per the Sarvajanik Granthalay(Public Library) of Malkapur,the Great Freedom Fighter of India Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose has made his last speech at a public meeting arranged in front of this library sometime in last quarter of 1940 after which he was arrested & imprisoned in his house. After sometime he escaped from his house and went to Germany via present day Afganistan through Russia.
