Background:

Bankura, the fourth largest district of West Bengal is located in the western part of the state, which is popularly known as ‘Rarh’ from time immemorial. It forms a part of the Bardhaman Division. It is bounded by Paschim Medinipur in the south and Hooghly district in the north, Purulia district in the west, and Bardhaman district in the north and east. In shape, it resembles an isosceles triangle wedged in between Purulia and Bardhaman, with its apex nearly opposite Raniganj and with an irregular baseline resting on Paschim Medinipur and Hooghly. Bankura is drained by Damodar, Dwarakeswar, and Kangsabati rivers along with their tributaries of which Gandheswari, Silai, and Kumari deserve separate mention. This district has a moderate deposit of Coal and a number of good deposits of China Clay. As Census 2001 data reveals, it ranks 12th in the state so far as total population is concerned.
