In the 1980s the stadium was made on the margin of Dumurjala, a neighborhood of Santragachi, Shibpur and Ramrajatala, by Howrah Improvement Trust. Based on the line of Netaji Indoor Stadium, Kolkata, it was originally planned for indoor sports activities. After the construction, only two state-level indoor matches were organized. Then defects in the construction of the galleries and floor came to the forefront. After that Howrah Municipal Corporation took the stadium and started using it for commercial needs.[2]

Reformation and developmentEdit
