Demography

Population growth is a significant aspect of development process. As a city grows the population also increases both naturally as well as due to the in migration from the surrounding areas. The increasing population put pressure on the city infrastructure and civic amenities. In a town like Englishbazar, Malda where the composition of population is very varied natural growth of population is bound to be in the higher side. Located close to the border area it is also susceptible to the migration from Bihar and Jharkhand.
