Bajpur is well connected with the industrial city of Rudrapur and the historical city of Kashipur. It is an affluent town, mainly due to large agricultural estates. It was initially, like most of the area which forms present day Udham Singh Nagar District, a part of the Terai, and was gradually transformed into arable land by migrants from Punjab. Most of the early settlers were those rendered homeless by the Partition of India in 1947.

Bajpur has the singular achievement of possessing the first co-operative sugar mill, which was dedicated to the nation by Jawahar Lal Nehru. It was the first effort of establishment of a sugar factory in the co-operative sector, which went into production on 16 February 1959. The much famous hill station "Nainital" is 58 km from this place. Sight seeing through this route is fantastic. 25 km ahead towards Nainital there is a place called Naya Gaon, where there is a natural waterfall named as Corbett Fall. Moving on the same road you can reach to Jim Corbett National Park, Which is famous for Tiger and elephants.

The area has a lot of large farm lands owned by people who migrated from Punjab in the early 1950s. A lot of prominent political figures at the National and State level like CM Parkash Singh Badal, CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda, MP Rana Gurjeet Singh, MLA Harbhajan Singh Cheema and Minister of Minorities Commission of Uttrakhand Sardar Mohar Singh Brah have their roots from this town.
