Jorabagan (Vidhan Sabha constituency) (Bengali: জোড়াবাগান বিধানসভা কেন্দ্র) was an assembly constituency in Kolkata in the Indian state of West Bengal.

As a consequence of the orders of the Delimitation Commission, Jorabagan (Vidhan Sabha constituency) ceases to exist from 2011.[1]

It was part of Calcutta North West (Lok Sabha constituency).[2]



In the 2006 state assembly elections, the 142 Jorabagan seat was won by Parimal Biswas of CPI(M) defeating his nearest rival Sanjoy Bakshi of Trinamool Congress. In the 2004 by-elections, Parimal Biswas of CPI(M) defeated Rajesh Kumar Sinha of Congress.
