Best answer

The five factors responsible for the location of jute mills along the Hugli basin are: 

  • Proximity or nearness to the jute producing areas. 
  • Inexpensive water transport. 
  • Good network of roadways, railways and waterways which helps in the movement of raw material to the mills. 
  • Availability of abundant water for processing of raw jute. 
  • Cheap labour from West Bengal, Bihar, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.
  • Kolkata being a large urban centre provides banking, insurance and port facilities for export of jute goods.
