Nushki District (Urdu: ضلع نوشکی‎) is one of the districts of Balochistan province, Pakistan. The administration of the Nushki district was taken over from the Khan of Kalat by the Indian government in 1896, and was leased from him on a perpetual quit rent in 1899.


Nushki initially belongs to rakhshanis i.e., mandaee and badini including jamaldin tribes. Later on khan of kallat sent Mengal and sumalani tribes along with pirkani, sarparah and rodeni tribes as border security force against Afghan invaders.
