Kanchausi is a town in Auraiya District in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh in India.[1] This town has a population of about 20,000 (rapidly growing now) and is located on the main railway line connecting Delhi and Howrah and is on the border between the districts of Auraiya, Kanpur and Etawah. The railway station is named as "Kanchausi". The main occupation of people here is agriculture and small business. The education level of most of the people is high but not very high. However in recently times, the locals are fast realising the importance of education which is established by the fact that there has been a spurt of small primary schools in the area and all of them seem to be doing rather well. There are three or four Inter colleges and one Degree College.

This small place has seen some golden times when it had flourishing business by some entrepreneurs. It used to attract many visitors. However with time things have deteriorated now.

The place is connected by both rail and road. There are few passenger trains that connect this place with business hub Kanpur and District Headquarters at Etawah. The nearest Airport is in Kanpur.

Kanchausi is a well known place for its serially 4 line at Kanchausi Railway Station.
