Kalyani is a city and a municipality in Nadia district in the state of West Bengal, India. It is 60km from Kolkata. It is a part of the area covered by Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA). The serene beauty of Kalyani simply enthralls the mind and soul. Far from the hustle and bustle of big cities and yet providing all the amenities of life, Kalyani has very quickly registered itself as a self-sufficient township. Its gradual development continued as a notified area. After 1996 it was upgraded to a municipality.

It is a planned town and an important centre of education. It can be considered a 'University Town' with 2 Universities (Kalyani University, and Bidhan Chandra University Of Agriculture) and many Colleges.

Kalyani is a relatively young town. During the Second World War, it was the site of a military airbase. Hangars and other reminders of the air-field are still visible in the 'A' Block and some areas around Kalyani University, whose buildings were built on or over the runways, thereby thoroughly destroying a very valuable asset.

In 1950 this town was built in a short time in order to host the Indian National Congress meeting. This planned town owes its existence and development to the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy. Kalyani is often referred to as his daughter.

As of 2001 India census, Kalyani had a population of 82,135. Males constitute 51% of the population and females 49%. Kalyani has an average literacy rate of 72%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 77%, and female literacy is 65%.

Kalyani is located at 22.98 N 88.48 E. It has an average elevation of 11 metres (36 feet) from sea level.
