HistoryEdit

At the time of the Battle of Plassey, local people migrated to a different place to avoid social and political turmoil and form a new human settlement. According to the etymology para (locality) of the inhabitants of Palashi (Palashi) set up here. Palashipara is a very old village situated in the bank of Jalangi River. An indigo kuthi was established by the indigo planters at Nishchintapur village near Palashipara.[1] Before the Partition of Bengal (1947) this place was under Meherpur subdivision in British India.[2][3]
