Industry

The Alipore Sadar subdivision includes Budge Budge, an old industrial town on the bank of the Hooghly, The jute industry, a major talking-point about the area has been facing labour unrest and sheer competition from jute mills in Bangladesh. A slightly older report by Shodganga mentions 9 jute mills in Budge Budge and 1 in Maheshtala. The MSME report mentions 6 jute mills and Budge Budge Municipality talks of four major jute mills – Budge Budge Jute Mill, Cheviot Jute Mill, Caledonian Jute Mill and New Central Jute Mill. Birla Jute Mill is at Birlapur. Such giants as Budge Budge and Allied Jute Exports Ltd have closed. India Linoleums Ltd. at Birlapur produces linoleum. Budge Budge has a number of oil storage units.[13][14][15][16][17]Bata India opened its first shoe factory in 1934 at Batanagar.[18]Budge Budge Thermal Power Station of CESC Limited has a generating capacity of 750 MW.[19]

“The whole of the jute mill area in Bengal was located on the either side of the river Hooghly, in a radius of about 50 kilometer north and south of Calcutta from Bansberia in the north, to Budge Budge in the South,” said a report of the Vidyasagar University. It further said that although jute mill workers were earlier local people, subsequently migrants formed a sizeable section of the population, because “agriculture in Bengal was more remunerative than work in the jute mills but what the jute mills paid was enough to attract labour from Bihar, Orissa, UP, CP and even Tamilnadu”. Much the same happened in other industries of the period.[20]
