Durgapur is a fast growing industrial city, with the majority of the workforce belonging to SAIL run Durgapur Steel Plant. In recent times, however, the city is undergoing rapid changes, and developmental processes have pushed the status of the city to one of “Smart City” as declared by the government of West Bengal. Being very close to Kolkata, it can be said to be the true satellite city of the metropolitan. But the positive thing about the city is that, while it has the amenities of a metropolitan, it has not yet succumbed to the unpleasantness of a big city.

The various developmental projects undertaken by both the central and state government have led to the city seeing a boom in the growth of a variety of industries, leading to a fair amount of job generation. Just a decade back, jobs in Durgapur denoted only one option, that is jobs in Durgapur Steel Plant. But in the current decade, many different industries have flourished here, leading to the generation of jobs in the city. Of the many booming sectors, IT and BPO can be said to be the most notable. Previously, all the small and big players in the field of IT and software had their offices in Kolkata. But in recent years, owing to the saturation of such industries and a lack of available space and workforce, most are coming down to Durgapur.

The boom of the IT sector has led to demands of designers, developers, customer service executives, human resource managers, administrative staffs, security staffs, and many others. To fill in these positions, it is not necessary to search outside the city as trained and efficient workforce is available in the city itself. Durgapur has many premiere educational institutions which are giving the chance to the new generation to study subjects of their interest, of which the main chunk is related to IT. Hence, while searching for well trained experts, the new and established IT firms of Durgapur do not have to search far from home. The newly passed out graduates are absorbed in these firms and immediately after passing out they start to earn a livelihood. Jobs in Durgapur have made possible for the new generation to stay back in the city and have a career full of potential and learning opportunities.

Another important factor in this is the geographical location of Durgapur. Durgapur is strategically located in such a manner, that it is not far from Kolkata, neither it is very far from Bihar, Jhharkhand, Chattisgarh, from where also job seekers flock to Durgapur. Historically, it is an extension of the Chotanagpur plateau that encompasses Bihar, Jharkhand, and Western parts of West Bengal. So it is a well connected place, and is also sometimes referred to as the “Gateway of the East”. Jobs in Durgapur have breathed new life in this region, benefitting many and attributing to the growth factor of the entire region.
