INTRODUCTION OF THE MUNICIPALITY

 

After the partition of Bengal, a section of people, though much in number, settled in and around erstwhile Habra P.S. areas of West Bengal. In 1955, after a popular agitation, Kalyangarh the Government sponsored refugee settlement was declared urban status; however not municipal area, yet the then Government declared its responsibilities to urbanise the roads, drainage, sanitation, etc. With utter dissatisfaction of the people, no work for urbanisation was really undertaken in the decade of sixties. Subsequently in the year 1968, Ashokenagar-Kalyangarh Municipality was created. This municipality is situated within Ashokenagar police station under Barasat Sub-division of the district of North 24-Parganas. This municipality has an area of 20.50 sq. km. comprising of 23 wards and 27410 numbers of holdings .Predominantly this is a domestic town.
