With the partition of India, there was a massive influx of refugees from East Pakistan into Kolkata and its peripheral areas. Of over a million refugees who entered West Bengal in 1950 alone settled mostly in squatter colonies between Naihati and Sonarpur on the east bank of the Hooghly and between Mogra and Uluberia on the west bank. This is an unplanned city and sometimes during heavy rains, may suffer from the drainage problems. The other problem is the erosion of Hooghly River and encroachment in the mainland. This city is famous for its industrial belts.
