About Sitapur

Sitapur is an important administrative town in Surguja District of Chhattisgarh state. It is actually headquarter of Sitapur Tehsil, one of the 19 tehsils in Surguja District. This headquarter town is located very strategically as well. It is located just 55 kms away from main city of Ambikapur and just 30 kms away from famous Mainpat hills station. Below we’ve brought forth lot of information about this town, wherein existing condition of all the important infrastructure and few other unique aspects of the town have been very comprehensively covered.

Economy of Sitapur

Like is the case with most small towns in rest of India, even Sitapur’s economic demography is dominated by traditional agricultural sector. This is to say that most people here directly or indirectly eke out their living from agricultural activities. As for presence of other industries and factories is concerned, then a small industrial area does operate in Ambikapur city, where locals do work in pretty significant numbers. This helps in bringing much needed cash flow and capital to this poor town.
Sitapur also has very minuscule and unorganized service sector, which is mostly lead by few banks, schools, retail shops and self employed people. But as we said that it is minuscule and unorganized, its contribution to local economy is relatively very less.

Healthcare Services in Sitapur

Sitapur is a small town with little economic revenue has been made amply clear in above paragraph. This underlying fact is also very much reflected in poor healthcare infrastructure existing in this town. Apart few not so well equipped hospitals and very few Community Healthcare Center and Primary Healthcare Center, this town does not have much facilities to offer to its local patients. However, Sitapur’s proximity with cities like Ambikapur and Korba cities does come as a respite for local patients here. These are fairly urbanized cities and therefore have more than decent number of well equipped hospitals.

Hospitals in Sitapur

Moving ahead of hospitals and coming to basic services like chemist shops etc, then at least on this front Sitapur town is somewhat standing on its feet. In other words, there are pretty decent numbers of chemist shops. Their presence completely ensures that general as well as life saving medicines are easily available for local people here.

Transportation in Sitapur

Only few state run buses do ply from this town, but there is no railway station serving here. In fact there is no railway station within the range of 10 to 15 kms. Nearby railway stations like Ambikapur Railway Station and Korba Railway Station are located quite far away. There are very limited or few public transportation options available in Sitapur town. This limited and few available options actually constitutes of only decent number of auto rickshaws, which only ply in limited areas of the town. Owing to their limited availability local people here many a times have to make considerable efforts to get auto rickshaws.

Tourist Destinations in Sitapur

Located just 30 kms away from Sitapur is Mainpat Hills Station, unarguably one of the most beautiful tourist destinations of Chattisgrah state. Here there are intrinsically beautiful waterfalls, amazing views, lush green mountains and also immensely beautiful forests. This place is indeed unlike any other in entire Chhattisgarh. This is exactly why most people in Chattisgrah refer this hills station as ‘Shimla of Chattisgrah’. Apart from ‘Shimla of Chattisgrah’, Mainpat hills station is also known as ‘Mini Tibet’. This unique title is because significant Tibetan Buddhist population has been living here for many decades. You’ll in fact many beautiful Buddhist temples here. Over all, Mainpat is too good a place to be missed. It certainly should not be if anyone is briefly staying in and around Sitapur town.

Banking Services in Sitapur

At present Sitapur exposure to modern banking services is certainly very much limited. Just one or two banks are operating their branches in this part of Chhattisgarh. Considering Sitapur’s meager population of 10,000 these few available banks can be termed as pretty much enough. However, coming up of few more banks would certainly give local citizens more exposure to modern banking services.
