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.

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: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
