History of Taraori

Taraori witnessed probably the most decisive battle in medieval Indian history. This battle is today famously referred to as ‘Battle of Taraori’, that was fought twice between Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan and Muhammad Ghauri. The first battle was won by Prithviraj Chauhan, but only to be crushed to humiliating defeat in second and last battle. This humiliating defeat changed the fate of the country and led to the establishment of Muslim rule in India. This is to say that had Prithviraj Chauhan not tasted defeat in second battle of Taraori, then great Muslim Empires like Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire would have never got a strong foothold in Indian subcontinent. It is for this reason that battle of Taraori is widely regarded as one of the most decisive battles in Indian history.

Administration in Taraori

Like all other towns and cities, even Taraori town has civic administrative needs, which are duly looked up on by Taraori Municipal Committee or Municipal Council. It is just like any other local civic administrative body. This is to say that even it is divided in certain number of wards and for which elections are fought once in every 5 years. As of today Taraori Municipal Committee has total 15 wards in it. As per 2011 census approximately 26,000 people were living across these 15 wards. Taraori Municipality obviously has to supply all the basic civic amenities to all these wards, the most important being supply of drinking water. Besides, it also has to maintain street lights and drainage system in all wards. And most importantly it also has to collect property taxes from all households coming under its jurisdiction.

Economy of Taraori

Economy of Taraori is mostly agrarian based. This fact actually shouldn’t surprise anyone, as Taraori falls in agriculturally rich belt of Karnal region which itself is referred to as ‘Rice Bowl of India’. This title has been obviously accorded for huge production of rice it boosts. Therefore influence of rice or paddy crop on Taraori’s agrarian economy is but obvious. This is to say that almost all local farmers of Taraori region produces paddy crop in huge quantity. However, other crops like wheat, sugarcane and even horticultural crops bear equal weight-age on its agrarian economy. As for industrial sector is concerned, then few small and medium scale agro based industries do operate here. These few agro based plants along with few other small industrial plants is what makes up the local industrial sector here. The overall size and economic scale of industrial sector is obviously very small, but it still makes a significant contribution to employment and revenue generation.

Healthcare Services in Taraori

The quality of Taraori’s healthcare services is surely not as good as neighboring and main city of Karnal, but over last few decades it has witnessed few worthwhile improvements. There are at least pretty good number of hospitals with standard medical infrastructure, which were obviously nonexistent some few decades back. Besides, as compared to past today number of chemist shops and clinics are also available in much higher number across the town. These improvements though positive and encouraging are obviously not enough to make local healthcare services self sufficient. This town will obviously have to boost even higher number of well equipped hospitals and equally higher number of other healthcare services to reach to the point of self sufficiency.

Transportation in Taraori

The biggest auto rickshaw stand is available outside Taraori Bus Stand and Taraori Railway Station. This brings us to connectivity where obviously local bus stand and local railway station play a very important role.
