Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chittaranjan is a census town in Asansol subdivision of Burdwan District in the state of West Bengal, India. This is famous for Chittaranjan Locomotive Works, a Indian Government railway factory. Chittaranjan is located at 23.87 N 86.87 E. It has an average elevation of 155 metres. The Asansol-Durgapur region is composed of undulating latterite. This area lies between two mighty rivers - the Damodar and the Ajay. They flow almost parallel to each other in the region - the average distance between the two rivers is around 30 km. For ages the area was heavily forested and infested with plunderers and marauders. The discovery of coal led to industrialisation of the area and most of the forests have been cleared. At the western fringe of the area the Barakar forms the boundary with Jharkhand. There is a small stretch of land border with Jharkhand in the Chittaranjan area.show more
