In the continent of India one can easily come across a multiple of towns and cities that have developed here by leaps and bounds. In the state of West Bengal also, there is no dearth of cities and towns as well. Amongst several towns the name of Kshirpai remains stand apart. There are many people who also identify it as Khirpai. Kshirpai is an example of a town lying in the district of West Midnapore of the same state of Indian subcontinent. For supervising the administration of Kshirpai, a municipality has been established.
The study of a town or place of India becomes complete when one catches hold of the demography of that particular place. To fulfill this goal, a handful of demographers have worked diligently and thus succeeded in bringing out the comprehensive report accordingly. The most prominent is the Census report that has been brought out in the year 2001. According to this report, the total population has been enumerated to be 14,545. Out of it, male populace constitutes 51 %, while the population of females constitutes 49 % only. Thus it can be deduced that number of males in Kshirpai is more than that of he female residents. Children who are below six years of age constitute 13 % of the total population of Kshirpai.
Experts have rightly said that literacy condition, being an indicator for measuring the growth of a particular town, also helps one to enumerate development rate of Kshirpai. As has been mentioned in the report the average literacy rate showed count of 67 %, which is higher than that of Indian subcontinent, which constitutes 59.5 %. On individual level, if one desires one can even get to know about male and female literacy rates. Male literacy constitutes 74 %, while the rate of female literacy is 59 %.
