Economy of Buguda

Buguda has a completely agricultural driven economy. This dependence is obvious consequence of the fact that Industrial and Service sector has a very marginal presence across this region. More than 70% of town’s workforce is solely dependent on agriculture sector for their economic sustenance. Many conducive factors also make agricultural a pretty productive occupation for locals here. This town not only receives substantial rainfall, but also has two irrigation dams to rely on for good harvest. These two dams are namely Baghua Dam and Dhanei Dam. It is also important to note that today considerable numbers of people from Buguda town are employed in innumerable industries in Berhampur town. In that sense Industrial sector does cast indirect influence on the local economy.

Healthcare Services in Buguda

There is a well equipped government hospital operating right into heart of Buguda town. It is the most premium healthcare institution of this small town. Although it is not a very advanced hospital but almost all local patients - suffering from major as well as minor diseases – are successfully treated at this hospital. This well equipped government hospital coupled with few other private hospitals make up the foundation of entire local healthcare services. Although this foundation is not very robust and 100% reliable as such, but it is certainly providing needed support to local healthcare needs. Another important factor that augurs well for local patients is presence of chemist shops and general clinics. Although there number is not very high, but can be described as acceptable and satisfactory – especially from standard of a small local town.

Transportation in Buguda

Very similar to most small towns, even Buguda town boosts a very limited public transportation infrastructure. There are only few auto rickshaws that are currently plying across this town. Even frequency of state run buses is not that high. Besides, another very inconvenient factor is that Balugaon Railway Station – nearest railway station – is located some 42 kms away. However, one pleasant factor is that Buguda town is very well connected via road to many important cities like Berhampur, Ganjam, Bhanjanagar, and Chatrapur. Direct connectivity to all these important cities is obviously huge boon – not just for economy but also for daily travelling commuters.
