From here 1 line proceeds towards Sonarpur and another towards Budge Budge on the down side. On the Up line is Sealdah. You can even get direct EMU service to Sealdah Main line which bypasses SDAH by using chord line route via PQS-SGBA-KGK-BNXR i.e you can directly get trains for Naihati which bypasses SDAH and you don't have to change train at SDAH. Gariahat a famous Market Shopping hub of Kolkata is only few minutes walking distance away from Ballygunge station. You will get AC Buses/Normal Buses to Airport/Howrah and to nearest Metro Railway station which is Kalighat.The fare of AC Buses from Ballygunge Jn to Howrah Jn is ₹30(Ashok Leyland/Tata Services)/₹35(Volvo).For Airport ₹50 or ₹55. The famous Kalighat temple of...

Kolkata is near the Metro station. You can avail Taxis/Autos/Buses for New Market another shopping hub in Kolkata as well. Tram Depot of Ballygunge is just located outside Ballygunge Jn station. So in a nutshell you will get every type of transportion to anywhere in the city from Ballygunge Jn.

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
