Top 10 Smallest Districts of India by Total Area

In India, districts are divided on the basis of ethical, cultural and social interaction rather on the basis of easiness or prosperity. This makes some districts very small while others large enough. There is no direct relation between area of district and its population. Large districts like Leh and Jaisalmer have low population in spite of their massive area.
