Kolkata, Kalighat Metro Rail Station:

Metro Railway has observed its Foundation Day today i.e. on 24.10.2022. It was on this date in 1984 that the first Metro of India ran from Esplanade to Bhowanipore Station (presently known as Netaji Bhavan ). To mark the occasion, a special programme was organized at Kalighat metro station. Shri H.N.
