Without confusing with the place called Bhatgaon in Nepal, Bhatgaon is a typical Indian town in the state of Chhatisgarh. The Bhatgaon Town lies in the Raipur District of the state. Situated at an altitude of two hundred and eighty seven meters, the global location of the town falls within north latitude 21°15' and east longitude 81°7'.
Similar to some other towns of the Raipur District, Bhatgaon is also stressing on education and literacy. It is still lagging behind the national average with a literacy rate of fifty nine percent. Only forty six percent of females are literate compared to seventy three percent of male.
Bhatgaon is not only a town but a Nagar Panchayat as well. With its proximity to some of the tourism destinations of the district, it is trying to emerge as a major town of the area.
