Economy of Bankura.
An Overview

The economic infrastructure of Bankura is basically agriculture dependent. Still being one of the draught prone district of West Bengal, Bankura has to support 4.58% of the state's population on nearly 7.8% of the land. Agriculture accounts for almost 70% of the district's income whereas 80% of the farmers are small & marginal. However due to protective irrigation system, land reforms and use of high fertile & hybrid crops the district is now not so poor as it was. Also, cottage and small-scale industries, e.g. Stone-crushing, Weaving, Oilseed-crushing, handicraft units like Dokra, Terra-cotta, Baluchari Sari etc. play a key economic role of the district.
