It is about 120 km from Kolkata on NH 6 and well connected by roads and railways.
The town has Diesel and EMU workshops which have created opportunities for a large number of medium and large scale units, which have, in turn, given rise to a considerable number of ancillary units. The strategic location of the town has also helped in the establishment of consumer goods, plastic, chemical and engineering industries like Tata Metaliks, Flender McNeil and others.
Kharagpur has developed itself into a cosmopolitan township and is adjacent to Midnapore, the district headquarter. Being quite prominent towns in the district, the area is well serviced by police stations, post offices and branches of nearly all nationalized and private banks. The town also has a fair number of good quality regular as well as vocational schools. Kharagpur and Midnapore towns also offer proper residential facilities.
The prestigious “Indian Institute of Technology” is also located in the town.
