Economy of Simga

About Simga

Owing to dismal presence of industries and other competitive sectors, Simga’s people continue to be reliant on agricultural activities for earning their livelihood. Statistically speaking, more than 60% of people are directly or indirectly in farming activities. Farming in Simga region though is mostly done through traditional methods, which is proving to be great deterrent to agricultural productivity of this region.Rest of the employment is mostly generated by industries operating in towns like Siltara, Raipur, Bhatapara and Urla. In fact Siltara and Urla Industrial area are not located very far away from Simga town. Industries operating in all these adjoining towns surely have indirect influence on Simga’s local economy. Simga also has a very minuscule service sector. At the very forefront of this minuscule service sector are few banks, restaurants, schools, and retail shops. Despite their very few numbers these service oriented institutions do create respectable number of jobs for locals here. Over all, it can conclusively concluded that agricultural sector completely dominates economic demography of Simga town.

Healthcare Services in Simga

While Simga town does not have really high numbers of hospitals, but there are certainly decent number of hospitals located in many adjoining towns. There are as many as 14 to 15 well equipped hospitals operating within the range of 30 kms. Most of these hospitals are operating in nearby towns like Tilda, Rohra and Damakheda. The only down side is that none of these hospitals is a multi specialty or advanced hospital. Hence when Simga’s patients are in dire need of complicated operations, surgeries or have to cure serious life threatening diseases, then they mostly choose to go to Raipur city. Coming to basic services like chemist shops and clinics, then they are present in pretty good numbers in this town. Especially chemist shops have widened their presence in this town during last few decades. General clinics and MBBS doctors are also present in pretty acceptable numbers here. Overall, Simga’s healthcare services can be termed as decent. At least for small town like this, the available infrastructure is pretty much decent enough.

Just like most small towns in rest of India, even Simga town does not have a very robust public transportation. All that it got in public transportation is just about respectable number of auto rickshaws. There is obviously no city bus or private taxis available in this immensely small town. Therefore local commuters have to solely depend on few available auto rickshaws for their local transportation needs.Simga town does not have a railway station of its own. The nearest railway stations are Tilda and Raipur Railway Station. However, few state run buses do ply from Simga and its nearby towns, connecting Simga to many important cities of Chhattisgarh state.
