Dhuri is one of the prominent towns in Punjab state. It is located in Sangrur District, on Ludhiana-Sangrur State Highway (SH 11). Dhuri’s importance can be determined from the fact that it is one of the 117 legislative assemblies in Punjab state. Besides, it is one of the tehsil towns as well as one of the very prominent industrial towns in Sangrur District. All these distinguished facts have been further explored in great detail in all the below paragraphs, by virtue of which you’ll get to know everything notable and worth knowing about this town.
History of Dhuri
The many archeological discoveries made by Archeological Department in adjoining town of Malerkotla amply prove that Dhuri town was once part of pre - pre-harappan civilization. These startling discoveries invariably make Dhuri region one of the oldest and historical regions of our country. Although these archeological artifacts located in Malerkotla Tehsil is not given due importance by local people, but this unpleasant fact hardly diminishes the historical importance of neither Dhuri town nor Sangrur district.. Besides being part of pre-harppan civilization, many historical facts also suggest that Dhuri, Malerkotla and also rest of Sangrur District were once ruled by great ancient empires like Mauryan and Nanda Empires.
Economy of Dhuri
Economy of Dhuri is largely dominated by industrial and service sector, whereas agricultural sector continues to wield indirect influence over town’s economy. The dominant role played by modern day industrial and service sector clearly vindicates that Dhuri’s economy has truly come of an age and is slowly marching on the path of modernization. Owing to importance of their role it is understandable that we must talk about these two respective sectors a bit more deeply.Talking about industrial sector first, then Dhuri has always been one of the important industrial towns of Sangrur District.

The main reason for this being its huge number of rice flour mills. Operating for many decades here, these rice mills today have become one of the most important pillars of Dhuri’s burgeoning economy. Prominent rice mill of Dhuri is Delhi based KRBL Limited, which owns the immensely famous India Gate Basmati Rice Brand. This rice mill is located in very heart of the town. There is another very prominent mill, though it is not a rice mill but a Sugar mill. This mill is Bhagwanpura Sugar Mills. Not only is it one of the largest mills, but is also one of the oldest mills of Dhuri town. Now coming to service sector, then Dhuri town is home to burgeoning banking industry coupled with equally resilient retail, healthcare and hospitality industry. Although all these Service oriented industries are still not big enough in terms of revenue, but they have certainly matured and progressed immensely over the years. Invariably contributing to local economy by its growth.
Healthcare Services in Dhuri
Dhuri doesn't face major shortage of well equipped hospitals. The reason for this being that not only has number of well equipped hospitals increased in Dhuri town alone, but their numbers have also increased in all the adjacent towns over the years. These adjacent towns mainly include Sangrur, Ahmedgarh and Malerkotla, all of which are located barely few kilometers away from Dhuri town.Likewise today patients of Dhuri also don’t face any shortage of chemist shops and pathlabs. What is even better is that today Dhuri town itself has so many chemist shops and general doctors that its patients don’t have to flock other towns. Going by sheer choices of hospitals and other basic services that Dhuri’s patients are enjoying, then Dhuri’s healthcare services can certainly be termed as reliable and efficient.

Transportation in Dhuri
Today Dhuri has a pretty exceptional public transportation in place. The town has more than sufficient number of auto rickshaws to look after its day to day local commuters. As a result local people here hardly complain about difficulty in getting auto rickshaws. At least they don’t face as much trouble as most local people few decades back did. Coming to connectivity, then Dhuri town enjoys excellent connectivity with rest of Punjab as well as rest of India. This is largely thanks to Dhuri Railway Junction, one of the prominent junctions in state of Punjab. Thanks to this junction Dhuri town is directly connected to virtually every part of Punjab as well as few of the prominent cities located outside Punjab state. Just as Dhuri town enjoys exceptional connectivity via train, it also enjoys outstanding connectivity via road as well. Hordes of state run buses regularly halt and ply through Dhuri Bus Stand on daily basis, invariably connecting it to several part of Punjab. Lastly, Dhuri’s strategic location on Ludhiana-Sangrur State Highway (SH 11) also helps this town in boosting its connectivity further.
Apart from big nationalised banks, Dhuri is also home to quite a few local cooperative banks, small micro finance units and decent number of private money lenders. Although all these are small unorganized players, but their presence surely helps in further improving the already efficient financial services of this town. In the end the only obvious conclusion that can be made is that Dhuri town has unarguably one of the most efficient banking services in Sangrur District.
