Bettiah church & girls'school

A large majority of Catholics in Chelidanga village, Asansol are from Bettiah, Bihar, a prosperous Christian community near Patna. They come to work in the Asansol Railways Yard and the Burnpur plants: the Indian Iron Steel Company (IISCo) and the Burnpur Waggons Factory. But they regularly visit their home town of Bettiah to keep in touch with their cultural roots.
