Salt Lake City Township of Kolkata (also known as Bidhan Nagar)completed 50 years on Monday, 16 April 2012 and celebrating its Golden Jubilee year. Exactly 50 years ago, on April 16, the late Chief Minister of West Bengal Bidhan Chandra Roy had laid the foundation stone of the township.
Click this link for the well planned Layout Map of the township. In this map, you can see how beautifully planned the individual blocks.
From one house at AA block, the township has grown over the last 50 years, with the present population at more than 2 lakh. I am leaving in this Township since 1988.
