It is a part of the area covered by Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA). It is one of the most densely populated areas in India. Barrackpore Trunk Road, which connects North and South Bengal, passes through Barrackpore. The town lies on the banks of River Hooghly and has been an important trading centre since 17th century due to its location between Calcutta (now Kolkata) and Howrah. In earlier days it was known as "Dihi Paltan" or "Dihi Kalikatta". It was also a cantonment for British troops until 1947 when India got independence from Britain after which they were moved out to Meerut near Delhi in Uttar Pradesh state where their main base remains today at Kirkee Cantonment near Pune in Maharashtra state . The Barrackpore Trunk Road runs through this town from north to south connecting NH 12 with NH 2 via Grand Trunk Road/ Durgapur Expressway & Jessore road / Diamond Harbour road respectively .
