Dum Dum Municipality is a small municipality but it plays an important role in the economy since it is the entry point of West Bengal and as well as the eastern region of India through Dum Dum Airport. The municipality was founded in 1929. Earlier it was considered as one of the important industrial areas of West Bengal but now main industries are closed (Like Jessop & Co.) – only to mention the Ordnance Factory Dum Dum and Sa Re Ga Ma
Pvt. Ltd. (formerly HMV). Dum Dum Central Jail is also situated in our municipality.
Since this is a mixed colonial area, people of different religion and community reside here. We believe in secularism and tolerance and we ensure that our residents are not deprived of their rights. We care for our citizens and try our best to improve the livelihood and lifestyles for them by delivering the best services by improving infrastructure and
other services. Our main constraint is limited resources but we are confident to cope up the problems and make ourselves capable to meet the aspirations & dreams of our people through modernisation of our service delivery methods and introducing fresh blood in each respect of our work.
