Economy

Nungi has an "once-upon-a-time" thriving fireworks industry. The chocolate bomb from Nungi market is well-known during the Diwali festival. The "Budi-Ma" brand of bombs are good. However, with the ban on "exploding" fireworks in Kolkata during the year 2000 to reduce noise pollution, Nungi's fireworks market had a severe setback.

Bata India shoe factory at adjacent Batanagar, makes shoe-making a pre-dominant cottage industry in the area. Countless houses and families are dedicated to manufacturing shoes of various makes, eg. leather, PVC, jute, etc for some of the leading shoe brands in India, for example — Khadim's, SreeLeathers, Liberty — have outsourced a major portion of their shoe making process to the various entities in the region.

The place is also famous as being the origins of Eastern India's large education and training provider company - Lakshya, which has recently diversified into software solutions with a client list that includes Reliance Communications, VSNL, ALCATEL, Genesys Labs to name a few.
