Abstract: The River Anjana was voluminous healthy water body with its natural ecosystem. The resident of famous zamindar Raja Krishna Chandra Roy of Nadia district is situated on the bank the Anjana River. The Anjana River is a connection between river Jalangi and river Churni. Thus it maintains the water balance at the time of monsoon. The river was a good medium for water transportation mainly for trading. The water of the river was also used in irrigation. There was abundance of fishes. Thus the river had a great scocio-economical as well as ecological significance. But the increased population and occupancy of the river bank transform this healthy river into a narrow, degraded canal. This is a review about the causes of destruction of the river Anjana with its biodiversity and will prevent further degradation.
