Rupnarayanpur Overview

Rupnarayanpur, also known as Rupnarainpur, is a city situated in the Bardhaman District of West Bengal. It shares the district with other industrially important cities of West Bengal, like Durgapur and Asansol. Asansol is a sub-division of this town. The Bardhaman District is also called the rice plate of Bengal as the abundance of agricultural fields present in the region, allows for huge production of rice.

The Asansol-Durgapur region is composed of laterite soil which is rich in iron and aluminium. The area is also a passing point of the Damodar and Ajay rivers. These rivers flow exactly parallel to this region, with a distance of 30 km between them. The town of Rupnarayanpur became a major industrial centre after the discovery of coal in the region.

This town is also referred to as Hindustan Cables Town, since the first production facility of the company was set up in 1952, in this town. This first branch of Hindustan Cables was set up here, in collaboration with Standard Telephones and Cables Ltd, for mainly producing paper insulated dry core cables.
