Kolkata formerly Calcutta is a city of many hues; its diversity and uniqueness is difficult to confine in a single phrase. Situated on the eastern bank of River Hooghly, Calcutta was established by the British out of three villages, Kalikata, Sutanuti and Govingapur. Today, it is a prosperous flourishing metropolis, commercial and financial hub, military port and home to more than 4 million people.

It is a city in need of renewal as it has lagged far behind in providing the best amenities to growing population. The antiquity of Kolkata and unplanned growth has exacerbated the problems further.

The government, realizing the magnitude of this problem, is keenly putting in place modern infrastructure and has tied up with a number of agencies to work towards its goal.

Metropolitan Transport Project was initiated in 1969, the master plan was prepared in 1971, work started on 29th December, 1972 on Dumdum Tollygunge corridor. Kolkata Metro which is the first underground Metro railway in India construction progressed from 1972 to 2013. The first metro line in India, the first stretch, of about 3.4 km between Esplanade and Bhowanipur was completed in 1984.

Phase I was completed in 1995, from Dum Dum to Tollygunge (Mahanayak Uttam Kumar). Phase II from Mahanayak Uttam Kumar to Kavi Nazrul station in 2009. The last leg upto Kavi Subhash station was opened in 2010 and in 2013 further extended to Naopara. Today about 5 lakh passengers enjoy the benefits of this modern metro system every day.

Kolkata Metro was the nations first metro and developed as a totally indigenous procedure, it was more an experimental undertaking when compared to the Delhi Metro. Therefore, it took about 23 years to build the 17 km Underground Railroad but, the project, for sure, has carved a unique position in the hearts of the people.

East West corridor connection between Howrah Railway Station and Bidhannagar was sanctioned in 2008. This would connect two of the busiest railway stations in the world; Howrah and Sealdah, and would pass under the Hooghly River. It would be the first river crossing metro in the country. The work on this underwater railroad has commenced; the journey would give Kolkata its second metro; a metro the residents and Indians would be proud of.
