Shilabati River originates in the terrain of the Chota Nagpur Plateau
in the Purulia district
of the state of West Bengal
in eastern India.
Shilabati River flows in an almost southeasterly direction through the districts of Bankura District
and West Midnapore District. Shilabati River joins the Dwarakeswar River near Ghatal and afterwards is known as Rupnarayan River
. It at last joins the Hooghly River
and drains into the Bay of Bengal
Almost every year the Shilabati River causes flooding, particularly in Banka District, Khirpai
Town and Ghatal area. There is a small reservoir on the Shilabati River near Khatra known as Kadam Deuli Dam.
