About Municipality

Memari, the city of your pride, is now a small town beyond the village. It is heard that the name came from Mohammadpur, It is also said that mail from Satgechia village to Ajapur was carried by horse or donkey with a halt or rest for water in the middle. In Portuguese, the name of this Halt is ‘Marmor’, which has evolved into Memory later.  After the construction of the railway line and the construction of the railway station were completed, Memari came to be known as a complete village. Now the Howrah Burdwan main line has passed through the center of the city.

Chairman Desk


I spent my childhood and youth in Memari,. I was born in a political family, grew up in the arena of politics, from the formation of the first Panchayat of Memari until today and my acquaintance as a representative of the municipality has all been with the love of the people of Memari. I am committed to every development and public service of Memari city and  I want to love and respect people till the end of my life.
After the political change of Memari municipality in 2010, my main vision was to build a fire brigade as per the long-standing demand of the people of Memari, which was inaugurated successfully, and proud to have achieved it. Then one after another municipal development such as the construction of a stadium, widening of roads with paver blocks, concreting of inner city roads, pitching of borough roads, concreting and covering of drains, regular sweeping of main roads of the city, improvement of the drainage system, lighting system in every street, install Higham's lighting system at every intersection of the city, Trident lighting system installation, road construction from Bamunpara intersection to the station and to hospital intersection, illumination around Chakdighi intersection, construction of Vivekananda statue at Chakdighi intersection, construction and installation of Netaji statue at the bus stand. Started cold drinking water system in every corner of the city and two in each ward, construction of a community centre and working centre in each ward, and construction of 42 community toilets and 6 public toilets. The use of toilets in every house has recognized Memari as an ODF city Rapid implementation of ODF Plus work, continuous program of solid waste management, taking proper measures for making plastic-free Memory, establishment, and implementation of 3 new urban health centers in the city, the launch of the master plan at a cost of 70 crores to solve the problem of drinking water, construction of houses for the poor is already undergoing. 621 houses in the IHSDP project, 132 houses in the SCHEME FOR URBAN HOUSING project, 9 houses in the GITANJALI project, and 484 houses in the HOUSE FOR ALL project have been completed.
