The diocese traces its history to its first bishop Frank Whittaker, who laid the foundation for the bishopric's administrative organisational structure just prior to the independence of India. The diocese was formed on 3 October 1947 and today the diocese is headed by Whittaker's successor, the present-day Bishop of Medak, who has his seat in Medak Cathedral.
Bishop of Medak
The Bishop of Medak oversees the diocese of Medak. Due to the diocese comparatively late date of foundation in 1947, its list of bishops is short when viewed next to the ancient dioceses of the Anglican Communion.
