Basic Introduction to Orai
The district is named after town of Jalaun, which was the former headquarters of a Maratha governor, but the
administrative headquarters of the district is at Orai. Other large towns in the district are Kalpi, Konch, and
Madhogarh.Jalaun District is a part of Jhansi Division. The district has an area of 4565 km², and a population of
16,89,974 (2011 census), with a population density of 370 persons per km². The district lies entirely within the level
plain of Bundelkhand, north of the hill country, and is almost surrounded by the Yamuna River, which forms the northern
boundary of the district, and its tributaries the Betwa, which forms the southern boundary of the district, and the Pahuj,
which forms the western boundary. The central region thus enclosed is a dead level of cultivated land, almost destitute
of trees, and dotted with villages. The southern portion presents an almost unbroken sheet of cultivation. The Non River
flows through the centre of the district, which it drains by innumerable small ravines. The districts of Etawah and Kanpur
lie to the north across the Yamuna, while Hamirpur District lies to the east and southeast, Jhansi District lies to the
southeast, and Bhind District of Madhya Pradesh lies to the west cross the Pahuj. The district has been under severe
drought for the last four years with the average rainfall being about 399 mm which is way behind the average of about
800 mm. In 2006 the Ministry of Panchayati Raj named Jalaun one of the country's 250 most backward districts (out of a
total of 640).[2] It is one of the 34 districts in Uttar Pradesh currently receiving funds from the Backward Regions Grant
Fund Programme (BRGF).
