History of BhadreswarBhadreswar town falls in a region which has been ruled by many great empires since ancient times. Right from Maurya and Gupta Empires to many indigenous empires that sprung up in Bengal have ruled this region during ancient period. Coming to medieval period, then during this period Bhadreswar and rest of Bengal region witnessed invincibility of Mughal’s and Nawab of Bengals. However, their invincibility vanished with the passage of time and their reigns were replaced by mighty Britishers who shaped the future of this town of West Bengal. The most important being establishment of Bhadreswar Municipality in 1869, which opened a new chapter in this town’s economic and civil development. Besides establishing local municipality, Britshers made many more infrastructural contributions, which obviously helped this small town to stand on its feet.

Economy of BhadreswarBhadreswar boosts a pretty mixed economy, where industrial sector, service sector as well as agricultural sector play very important role. Owing to its mixed economy Bhadreswar town can be considered as fairly modern economy, though it still has a very long way to go in modernizing its economy. Talking first about its industries, then there are quite a few agro based industries operating in and around Bhadreswar town. Victoria Jute Mill and Reliance Jute mill deserves mention because they are one of the largest jute mills of Hooghly District, but more importantly they generate huge number of employment for locals of Bhadreswar town. Aside from this above mentioned jute mill, there are many more mills and other industries operating in adjoining towns like Hooghly, Kolkata, Angus and Champdani. Needless to say, Bhadreswar’s locals are employed in very huge numbers in industries operating in all these adjoining towns. Actually Hooghly District is itself one of the most industrialized districts of West Bengal state and Bhadreswar town happens to be located at a very strategic location of this industrialized district, which obviously proves very beneficial for its local economy.
Coming to service and agricultural sector, then both these sectors also generate huge number of employment for locals here. However, years of steady urbanization has surely helped service sector in gaining more ground, whereas agricultural sector’s influence has been restricted to adjoining villages and small towns.

In addition to these banks, quite a few local cooperative banks, regional rural banks and small micro finance institutions are also operating their branches here. All these financial and banking institutions do make up for very reliable banking services. However, we can’t help but suggest the fact that this fast growing town deserves to have even more branches of reputed commercial banks.
