The village Panchkula is situated in the district Bardhaman or
Burdwan, West-Bengal. Not many people know about this place or
village, the village consist of a small primary School named
"Panchkula Prathamik Vidhaylay", a small Health center, a Post
office and two very famous temples named "Chandrai Dharmaraj
temple" and the "Hara-gouri temple". A river called Khari Nadi
passes nearby the village and a road named Haldar road is the major
roadway which connects Panchkula to different other villages like
Pathar Pukur, Jagdabad and Pilkhuri.
There are proper transportation facility like bus service is
available from the village to the city Bardhaman. But the condition
of road is pathetic and while traveling you may get some cramp in
different part of your body. As the road is made up of red soil it
has to be repaired after every year. Hence immediate and necessary
action should be taken to prepare a permanent road connecting Haldar
road to the Panchkula and other nearby villages.

The other facilities such as drinking water, electricity and
telephonic facilities are also there but as the infrastructure is
not that good they give trouble to the villagers as there are no
water taps and the electricity also creates a huge problem for the
villagers as there agricultural irrigation is totally depended on
the big pumps called Sub-Marshals. The governmental Cannels which
are meant to supply water to the farmers are totally useless and do
not solve the purpose of poor farmer.
The villages Primary School have seen some development such as
more emphasis is been given to the studies and more students from
the lower section of society are joining the school and the school
is also been taken under the Sarwa Siksha Abhiyaan scheme.
