Hin: बैतूल  baitūla

‘No Cotton (Land)’  [Badnur] City/District,  Madhya Pradesh (MP)

From Hin: bē, ‘without’, ‘devoid of’; and tūlam, ‘cotton’; and bāzāra, ‘market-place’ 

The assumption here is that Betul and Betul Bazaar were beyond the main cotton-growing areas of the region.

Betul is close to the Satpura National Park and the border with Maharashtra.
