Rajshahi

Rajshahi Division is one of the seven administrative divisions of Bangladesh. It has a population of almost 30 million and area of about 34,513 kmē[1]. Rajshahi division consists of 8 districts, 70 Upazilas (the next lower administrative tier) and 1,092 Unions (the lowest administrative tier). This division is characterized by its cheap labour force. It has an excellent rail and road communication infrastructure. The divisional city Rajshahi is only four hours road journey away from Dhaka, the capital city. However, recently a new division has been curved out of Rajshahi Division namely Rangpur Division. So the given area and population will definitely decrease in the division.

Rajshahi division is in the mid western corner of Bangladesh. The famous river Padma borders Rajshahi division on the south and another famous river, Jamuna, lies across the eastern border. In the West, Rajshahi division shares a border with India.
