Covering an expansive area of 3,019 square kilometers and with a total population of 20,29,339. people as per the 2011 Census records, the Banka district is one of the most politically significant constituencies in Bihar. Considered the Rice Bowl of India, the Banka district is reliant on an agrarian economy, and the primary crops grown are rice, wheat, lentils and corn.  

This district is gradually turning into a region of heavy industrial investments, especially coal based power plants, which meets all the requirements to flourish in this district. Nonetheless, the Banka district, like the remaining 35 districts in Bihar, is one of the economically backward districts and receives regular funds from the government under the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme (BRGFP).
