Budge Budge (Bengali: বজ বজ Bôj Bôj) is a town and a municipality in South 24 Parganas district in the state of West Bengal, India. It is a part of the area covered by Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority.[1]


History[edit]

Hindu evangelist Swami Vivekananda landed at Budge Budge ferry ghat in 1897 when he returned from his Chicago visit. The anniversary is still celebrated on 19 February with great zeal. The old station from where he boarded the train to Calcutta is decorated with flowers on this day. The waiting room where he rested for a while is preserved.

A curious feature of this small and old town is the large number of Sikhs who live here.

Budge Budge was the site where the ship Komagata Maru was allowed to land following its return from Vancouver. The ship was chartered by a group of Sikhs to challenge the exclusion laws enacted by Canada to restrict Indian immigration. Upon entry into the harbour, the ship was stopped by a British gunboat, and the passengers were placed under guard. The government of the British Raj saw the men on the Komagata Maru not only as self-confessed lawbreakers, but also as dangerous political agitators. When the ship docked at Budge Budge, the police went to arrest Baba Gurdit Singh and the 20 or so other men that they saw as leaders. He resisted arrest, a friend of his assaulted a policeman and a general riot ensued. Shots were fired and 19 of the passengers were killed. Some escaped, but the remainder were arrested and imprisoned or sent to their villages and kept under village arrest for the duration of the First World War. This incident became known as the Budge Budge Riot.

Historically the oldest people of this place were the 'Haldars' who came here to guard a fort near the bank of the River Ganges. A British writer who had come with Clive around 1740-50 chronicled this event. Maniklal was the main person at the fort and his soldiers lost to Clive's troops.[citation needed]

Geography[edit]

Budge Budge is located in the south-western suburbs of Kolkata, on the eastern bank of the Hooghly River. Over the past few years Budge Budge has developed considerably in terms of lifestyle and infrastructure. With the ongoing projects like Calcutta Riverside, widening of the Budge Budge Trunk (BBT) road and the starting of the 7.7 km elevated corridor from New Alipore to Batanagar;[2] the economy of this area is expected to get a major boost.

Economics[edit]

Budge Budge owes much of its importance to the Port, oil storage and jute mills. Being close to Kolkata and on the shores of Hooghly river makes it a strategic location for oil storage and is the biggest oil storage for the metropolis Calcutta with big PSUs like Petroleum Wharves Budge Budge (PWBB) under Kolkata Port trust (কলকাতা বন্দর প্রতিষ্ঠান). BPCL, HPCL, IOC having large units there. Jute mills were the biggest employers in the area till they started falling sick. Prominent among them are New Central Jute Mill and Budge Budge Jute Mills. At their height before 1971 these jute mills used to employ thousands of workers (New Central Jute Mills has been said to have employed as many as twenty thousand people) but after the partition of India and the subsequent creation of Bangladesh, supply of raw materials for these jute mills decreased. This, along with failure of trade unions lead to the closing of most of these jute mills.

The Budge Budge Thermal Power Station set up by CESC in Achipur (named after a Chinese called Achhu saheb by the locals who had established a sugar cane unit there) is a major source of electricity for Kolkata and its suburbs.

Transport[edit]

The Sealdah-Budge Budge line was constructed in 1890.[3] It is part of the Kolkata Suburban Railway system. The Tollygunge railway station on the Sealdah Budge Budge line is at the surface level over the underground Rabindra Sarobar station of Metro Railway.

In 1952 the Indian government set up a memorial to the Komagata Maru martyrs near the Budge Budge. In 2013, the Budge Budge railway station was renamed as Komagata Maru Budge Budge Railway Station by the West Bengal Government.

Ferry service connects Bauria (Howrah District) to Budge Budge.
