Birlapur town was founded by Mr. M.P.Birla. He established different factories here. It is famous for the Birla Jute Mill. There are one Calsium carbite factory, one linonium factory, one jute fibre factory and auto trim factory also. There is a co-educational high school named Birlapur Vidyalaya with both Hindi and Bengali medium. There is a permanent market also. The factory has its power house. Most of the employees stay in company provided quarters.

It is a place for many Birla employees and their children who spent most of their childhood in this serene and peaceful urban area.

In the recent years, Birlapur town has seen lots of financial crisis as most of the factories are closing down, however, it is a great place to live and raise your children. It needs an eye of a new investor for its thriving and successful future, as it used to be in 90's.
