Santragachhi, Howrah — Close to Kolkata, Upcoming Real Estate Hotspot

There is an old saying that the western bank of the Ganges is as holy as Varanasi — ‘Gangar Poschim Kul, Varanasi Samatul’. In fact, Howrah is a much older city than Kolkata and in the recent past, has again come to focus.

Howrah, especially the north-western area of Howrah, has seen increased development activities that massively enhanced the quality of life of the residents. The shifting of administrative headquarter of West Bengal to Nabanna has increased the focus of the policymakers on the region. Moreover, Santragachhi railway station became more important in the scheme of things of the railways, and this has catalyzed the development of the area.

Although Howrah is quite an old city, rapid development started only recently, especially in Santragachhi region because of a number of factors.

This region has fast and better connectivity with Kolkata by virtue of Vidyasagar Setu, or second Hooghly Bridge as it is popularly called. Actually, one can reach Park Street in about 30-45 minutes. The ongoing widening of Santragachhi railway overbridge, once completed, will further reduce sporadic traffic bottlenecks.

Connectivity will greatly improve once Kolkata Metro line 2, or Salt Lake Sector 5 to Howrah Metro, is complete up to Howrah Maidan. This will make accessing different parts of Kolkata quite fast and easy; even commuting to and fro from the airport will be far quicker.
