Overall Guide: Really, Calcutta(Kolkata) is meant for the CITY OF JOY, being a gazetted officer, i certify this. I transferred from other city, felt some difficulties during initial 2-3 months only due to some language problem, but that is ignorable and may be enjoyed. I was thinking that peoples of BANGLADESH feels MORE comfortable than other part of this country due to their fluency in the bangla language. I appreciate the city for its co-operative and respective attitude, discipline, faith, equality and standards(of food, transport and services in cheap rate). Some attention required on Road Quality, Work Culture, Union-ity in every sector. Overall respect and my salute for the city.

Overall Guide: Calcutta is overcrowded and the transportation is not good. Language problem is there, people speak mostly in Bengali only. People from other states cannot understand the local language. English language use is at a minimum, compared to what it is in Bombay.

Overall Guide:  Calcutta glitters with its beautiful architecture such as the Victoria Memorial, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Hooghly Bridge, Marble Palace and many more spread across the city.
The Botanical Gardens is a welcome treat for the tourists. Another attraction here is a 250-year-old banyan tree with long stretching shades.
The Kali Temple is an ancient temple and a famous landmark in Calcutta. Throughout the year, devotees throng the temple and its streets which are lined with retail stalls selling religious artefacts.
The Indian Museum is one of the oldest museums in the world. It houses ... More an exceptional collection of antiques, ornaments, fossils, mummies and Mughal paintings. Most notable are the fossils of primitive animals like dinosaurs and the exotic collection of meteorites.
The Academy of Fine Arts, one of the oldest fine arts societies in the country displays an enchanting collection of art collectibles, crafts and ancient relics.

Overall Guide:  Calcutta, now known as Kolkata, is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. Located on the banks of the Hooghly River, it is a vivacious city famous for its radical history. It is the fourth largest city in India with a populace of about six million people.
Calcutta is represented by a tropical climate wherein summers are long and hot while winters are short and mild. Winters last for a very short while, whereas summers often bring with them spells of thunderstorms. The city experiences heavy rains which bring a relief from the heat.
Calcutta was the capital ... More of India till 1912. The city experienced an economic decline after independence but it bounced back soon during the Indian IT boom. Today, many multinational companies are based here and the city is on its way to progress.
