Kolkata metro rail, the first underground railway system in India. It is clean, pollution free, fastest movement within city... now a large no. of ac rakes are in operation. But everyday it is facing technical problems, time schedule is not maintained properly. It is now stretched between Kavi Subhash (New Garia) and Dumdum (north 24 Parganas). After 2009, a large no. of improvements are observed like starting of operation from Tollygunge to Kavi Subhash, vast renovation of stations, implementation of ac metros (which is now the comfort for passengers), etc. but somehow due to non maintaining of proper time schedule, a huge no. of gatherings of passengers create problems, doors are not closed, so, delay and delay....
the management should think of that, it is our pride and of course the best solution for easy and smooth movement of life.

Clean, efficient, punctual, the Metro explodes all negative myths about Kolkatans and their untidy ways. Started over 25 years ago, the Metro continues to be an important travel lifeline which is clean and efficiently run. Now being expanded to the airport to be connected to Howrah station, it has become an indispensable part of the quintessential Kolkatan.

Metro rail is an underground railway service in Kolkata which started in early 80s. It is known as 'Paataal Rail' in Bengali, which means Underground Train. It runs from Dum Dum to Tollygunge as underground rail and from Tollygunge to Garia Market as overhead train. Metro rail has been shown in lots of movies in recent times and it still acts as one of the biggest attractions of the eastern metropolitan city. We have fast moving trains running every 10 minutes in both directions which makes travelling not only easy but also delightful. The introduction of smart cards and monthly tickets have made journey hasslefree for regular commuters. After Kolkata, nowadays Delhi has also introduced metro rail in their city.

Metro has been a boon for everyone in Kolkata, from student going to the university to office commuters to Park street. On a regular day it is the fastest way to get around if you want to avoid the traffic. It might get a little crowded. But it's much better to ride a crowded metro for 20 mins rather than standing in the traffic for an hour. It runs from Garia to Dumdumat present. Love it from my college days. Usually runs perfect on time
