Fatehpur (City of Victory), a city in the Doab, N.W. Provinces, British India, situated on the railway between Calcutta and Delhi, 70 miles N. of Allahabad, and 50 miles S. of Cawnpore. It has some business importance, but is chiefly remarkable as the administrative centre of the district to which it gives its name. The latter has an area of 1,583 square miles, bounded on the one side by the Ganges and on the other by the Jumna. A branch of the Ganges Canal also provides means of communication and irrigation. The fertile alluvial soil yields the usual Indian crops, especially cotton, in abundance.
