Kalyani subdivision is an administrative subdivision of the Nadia district in the state of West Bengal, India.

Overview[edit]

Nadia district is part of the large alluvial plain formed by the Ganges-Bhagirathi system. The plains spread southwards from the head of the delta. The Kalyani subdivision has the Bhagirathi on the west, with Hooghly district lying across the river. Topographically, Kalyani subdivision is part of the Ranaghat-Chakdaha Plain, the low-lying area found in the south-eastern part of the district. The area slopes southwards. The area had large forests. The huge influx of East Bengali refugees that took place in the district immediately after the partition of India and the steady influx ever since paved way for conversion of forest into agricultural land.[1]
