Jaunpur was founded by Firoz Shah Tuglaq in memory of his cousin Jauna. It comes under the more underdeveloped areas of Uttar Pradesh. Jaunpur resembles the Purvanchal area. It consists of rural agricultural population with high illiteracy rate. No major industries are operative in this area and the one perfume manufacturing is obsolete. With the help of the state government, an industrial area has been set up offering opportunities to new industrialists. There has been some upliftment in the corporate sectors. Jaunpur had been an important centre of Islamic studies. It’s also famous for its Jasmine oil, tobacco, radish etc.
