Tangra , situated in the eastern part of Kolkata (Calcutta) India, is one of the Chinatowns in the city that still has the largest number of Indian Chinese living in the area as compared to any other city in the rest of India.

The significant majority of the Indian Chinese are involved in the business of leather and leather goods manufacturing, restaurant, and beauty parlor. A few Indian Chinese are still involved in the retail of handmade shoes, dentistry and carpentry while an increasing number of Indian Chinese are immigrating to countries like Canada, USA, Australia, Taiwan and a number of other countries for better opportunities which are at least somewhat better than their conditions in India. Since many of those who immigrated are also businessmen which make it surprising as foreign businessmen are trying to find a way to invest in India and the Indian Chinese businessmen are leaving the country.
