History of Charkhi Dadri

For many decades history of Charkhi Dadri and its adjoining regions rarely evoked any interest at all. But in 1992 some startling archeological discoveries in nearby Mitathal village, which is located some 35 kms away from Charkhi Dadri town, eventually broke that decade long myth. Archeologists believe that these archeological discoveries belong to great Harappan Civilization, which is why they were classified as startling and shocking. Although these archeological discoveries are yet to be studied deeply, but they have proven that there is certainly more to history of this region. Until many decades back Charkhi Dadri was only known as ‘Charkhi’, as nearby Dadri town was not yet made part of it. However, for administration purposes both these towns were merged together and name ‘Charkhi’ was eventually replaced by new name Charkhi Dadri.

Charkhi Dadri Mid-Air Collision

One of the saddest day in Charkhi Dadri’s history occurred on 12th November 1996, when it witnessed the world’s deadliest mid air collision, resulting in killing of all 349 passengers. Today this event is popularly referred to as ‘Charkhi Dadri mid-air collision’. Aircrafts involved in this fateful collision were Saudi Arabian Airlines Boeing 747-100B (en route from Delhi to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia) and Kazakhstan Airlines Ilyushin Il-76 (en route from Chimkent, Kazakhstan, to Delhi).     

Administration in Charkhi Dadri

Day to day civic administration is looked after by Charkhi Dadri Municipal Committee. Supply of drinking water, drainage sanitation, maintenance of street lights and providing basic healthcare needs are some of the basic civic responsibilities of this municipal council. Going by all these civic duties and responsibilities, it is very obvious that, Charkhi Dadri’s municipal committee’s responsibilities are just as same as any other local civic bodies of our country.

According to 2011 census approximately 56,337 people are living across these 19 wards.

Economy of Charkhi Dadri

Charkhi Dadri region is more or less dependent on agricultural sector for its sustenance and livelihood. Although today owing to steady urbanization agricultural sector’s domination may not be directly visible in main town of Charkhi Dadri, but all villages coming under its tehsil are solely dependent on agriculture for their survival. As for which are the main crops to be cultivated here, then they are as follows: Bajra, Rapeseed Mustard, Wheat, Gram and Cotton. Besides these main crops, horticulture crops like Citrus, Ber, Guava, Carrot, Cauliflower and Tomato are also grown in huge quantity here. Actually all the above mentioned crops are more or less grown in huge quantity in all other regions of Bhiwani District as well. Therefore it would not be wrong to say that all these crops are main crops of entire Bhiwani District.

Coming to other sectors like industrial and service sectors, then both of them enjoy very peripheral importance here. In other words, they don’t generate as much employment and revenue for this region. Speaking specifically about industrial sector, then many small scale industries and factories do operate here, providing much needed but very minimal employment opportunities. Talking about large scale plants, then they are mainly located in and around Bhiwani town, but Bhiwani town isn’t located very far away from Charkhi Dadri. Therefore substantial numbers of Charkhi Dadri locals flock to Bhiwani town to seek employment.

Healthcare Services in Charkhi Dadri

In last one decade or so healthcare services in Charkhi Dadri have improved by leaps and bounds. This is amply proven by decent increase in the number of local hospitals which has acted in the favor of the residents of the town. Coming up of all these well equipped hospitals has without a doubt given a huge breathing space to all local patients, who till many years back had to inconveniently flock to other cities for reliable treatment. This said, migration of local patients has not completely stopped, but their percentage has certainly come down. One should hope that for further betterment more well equipped hospital will grace this town in near future. Moving to other basic services like chemist shops and clinics, then situation on this front equally very pleasant. This obviously means that there is simply no dearth of chemist shops and general clinics in this town.

Transportation in Charkhi Dadri

As compared to past Charkhi Dadri current transportation services are definitely far more pleasing and satisfactory. The reason for this is that over the year’s number of auto rickshaws have risen quite significantly, invariably improving quality of its local transportation services. This said, this town still needs even more auto rickshaws to cope with demands of its increasing population. The brisk rise in population is actually direct result of steady urbanization, which is obviously putting lot of pressure on local transportation services. Hopefully this issue will be duly addresses by concerned authorities. Coming to connectivity, then Charkhi Dadri Railway Station has a very important role to play on this front. Although it is a very small station and is mainly connected to cities of Punjab and Haryana, but is still of vital importance for local commuters here. Hence not surprisingly everyday this small station draws thousands of commuters from length and breadth of Charkhi Dadri region. Here are the names of some of the important cities that this station is connected to: Bhiwani, Hisar, Rewari, Amritsar,and Jaipur.

Banking Services in Charkhi Dadri

Things are equally satisfactory and pleasant on the front of banking services too. Many reputed banks that have come up during past few decades have completely redefined banking services here by bringing innumerable modern banking services to the shores of this small town. Apart from all these reputed banks, local cooperative banks and small micro finance institutions are also adequately present in this region. Although they cannot match up with big banks in terms of services, but their role is just as critical in terms of providing key financial services like long term/short term credit and inculcating saving habits among locals.

This fact certainly makes this town one of the most livable places of Haryana. Besides, these infrastructures have also invoked a sense of optimism about town’s future prospect. With constructive planning and action by concerned authorities in future, these prospects can very well change into living reality, invariably raising standard of living even further.
