Industrial Profile of Bankura District

 

An overwhelming agro-economic base and low urbanisation and industrialiasation characterize the district of Bankura. The district is broadly divisible into two regions the alluvial plains in the east and the undulating tract to the west. Within the district and even within these regions, the villages vary not only in their geographical features but also in their physical forms and composition their economic and social life patterns. Agricultural activities and most its employment and priority is being accord to its development.

The mines and minerals play a vital role in the economy of Bankura. Mines and minerals based ventures have already come up on the stretch of land from Bankura to Saltora. In areas like chhatna, Saltora Khatra, Ranibundh, Bankura to Indpur stretch and Raipur, Taldangra, the prospects for setting up of mines and minerals based industries are, indeed bright subject to environmental clearance.

The blocks like Bishnupur, Sonamukhi, Patrasayer, Indus, Joypur, Kotulpur have been setting up Agriculture based Industries like, Rice and Oil Mills. There is scope for more. The climate is also conducive for food processing ventures.

The forest wealth of Khatra and Ranibandh areas have always been remarkable. Various forest produce and medicinal flora and fauna are routinely exported to neighboring districts and also outside the State. On one hand industries can be developed to extract non-edible oils and on the other different Medicinal Plants and Ayurvedic formulations can be produced here. Such development will not only generate employment opportunities for local but also accomplish the task of conservation. Apart from this, in this district large chunk of areas are having undulated alluvial sandy soil which cannot retain water. Consequently, most of these areas are either under monocrop production or lying fallow. Certain aromatic plants which require little irrigation can be grown up in this area. Moreover, new species of herbs and medicinal plants may be palnted in the vacant areas and unutilized forest lands.

Cottage & Small Scale Industry constitutes a major segment of district's economy. It provides maximum employment opportunity next to agriculture and this accounts nearly 9 percent of district Income. There is ample scope of development in this sector with provision of modern technology and other infrastructure facilities. Effort has been taken up for the improvement designs, marketing assistance and finance etc. specially in case of brass & bell metal craft, conch shell products, fishing hook, pottery and leather products etc. through different development agencies. New technology in Babui Rope Making and Sal leaf product have contributed and impact on the rural people of tribal areas.
