south Dumdum is an emerging city in the Indian state of West Bengal. It is a municipality in the Barrackpore subdivision of the North 24 Parganas district and consists of localities like Nagerbazar, Dum Dum Park, Lake Town, Bangur Avenue. The South Dumdum municipality was established in 1870. During the partition of Bengal in 1947, several refugees had migrated to this area from erstwhile East Pakistan. Initially, the bulk of refugees were mostly non-agriculturists and they made some vocational arrangements of their own by taking to squatting. They indulged in the forcible occupation of barracks and collectively took-over the private and government lands. By the year 1949, 65 refugee colonies had emerged in the area. Within very less time, these squatters not only found places to stay but also developed a properly functioning society with markets, schools, temples and eventually built colleges, hospitals and recreational centers. The South Dum Dum has over 4 lakh residents now. It has developed well with all civic amenities. It is mostly a residential city and most of the residents travel to the adjoining metro city of Kolkata for work.
