A community based cross-sectional study was done by interviewing a sample of 360 women of Anchuri Block in the district of Bankura, West Bengal to know the determinants of utilization and coverage quality of antenatal care services of subcentres using an appropriate scoring system for analysis. The study revealed underutilization of subcentres by the women and also sub-optimal performance of subcentres with regard to coverage quality of ANC services The main reason for under utilization of subcentres was found to be better service provision and easy accessibility of B.S. Medical College Hospital. Multiparous mothers were seen to be at a disadvantage both in terms of utilization of the source of choice as well as in terms of coverage of ANC services by subcentre ANMs.
