  Tapan Project:  

Tapan Project of Tagore Society for Rural Development (TSRD) is situated in Tapan Block of Dakshin Dinajpur District of West Bengal. From its project office at Balapur, Tapan, TSRD covers the entire district i.e. all the 9 Blocks. Dakshin Dinajpur is predominantly an agricultural district with large area of land being under cultivation and a “non industry” district having no large scale industry. In 2006 the ministry of Panchayati Raj named Dakshin Dinajpur as one of the country’s 115 most backward districts. This district has a population of 16,70,931 (2011) with a minority Muslim population of 44.01%. The district is divided into six assembly constituencies, among them one is reserved for scheduled tribes and another two are reserved for scheduled castes. Literacy rate is male and female only 73.3% and 55.12% respectively. Work participation rate is male only 41% and female only 25.14%. TSRD is working in this backward district since 1977.

In 1976 TSRD started working in South Dinajpur District, adjacent to Bangladesh border areas. As the project area shares its border with Bangladesh and acute poverty situation of the community caused various illegal trades. Most people belong to below the poverty line and consequently clouded with sheer illiteracy. Muslim minority community and the aboriginals dominate the demographical status of the entire project area. Tapan Project of Tagore Society for Rural Development very sincerely and with utter intensity runs its developmental activities in the selected villages of all the 8 blocks of the district.
