Hi there,

Good question. Count for 75 mins taxi station to airport as it's morning rush hour. Would not risk it, see my own question.

All the best,

<Erik>

Absolutely risky proposition. Track record of Padatik Exp seems not much impressive as far as arrival schedule is concerned. If possible, get down at Dumdum Jn, airport is close to that station than Sealdah.

At 7 am traffic pressure is quite less. Take a cab from Sealdah and head towards the E.M. Bypass, take left and follow on. Should reach by 8 am peacefully.

Stick to Victoria Memorial, Kalighat temple and New Market area. You won't have time for anything more.
