Krishnanagar Sadar subdivision is an administrative subdivision of Nadia district in the state of West Bengal, India.

Overview

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 Krishnanagar Sadar subdivision has the Bhagirathi on the west, with Purba Bardhaman district lying across the river. The long stretch along the Bhagirathi has many swamps. The area between the Bhagirathi and the Jalangi, which flows through the middle of the subdivision, is known as Kalantar, a low-lying tract of black clay soil. A big part of the subdivision forms the Krishnanagar-Santipur Plain, which occupies the central part of the district. The Jalangi, after flowing through the middle of the subdivision, turns right and joins the Bhagirathi. On the south-east, the Churni separates the Krishnanagar-Santipur Plain from the Ranaghat-Chakdaha Plain. A portion of the east forms the 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.[1]
