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 Tehatta subdivision is topographically part of the Nadia Plain North. The Jalangi River forms the district/ subdivision border in the north-western part and then flows through the subdivision. The other important rivers are Mathabhanga and Bhairab. The subdivision slopes in a south-easterly direction and on the east has a long boundary with Bangladesh. The area had large forests. The huge influx of 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.

Tehatta subdivision has 5 police stations, 4 community development blocks, 4 panchayat samitis, 36 gram panchayats, 240 mouzas, 217 inhabited villages and 2 census towns. The census towns are: Karimpur and Uttampur.
