Kolkata (Page Module:IPA/styles.css has no content.UK: /kɒlˈkɑːtə/[10] or /kɒlˈkʌtə/,[11] Page Module:IPA/styles.css has no content.US: /klˈkɑːtɑː/,[12] Template:IPA-bn; also known as Calcutta /kælˈkʌtə/[11][12] which was the official name until 2001) is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. It is on the eastern bank of the Hooghly River Template:Cvt west of the border with Bangladesh. It is the primary business, commercial, and financial hub of Eastern India and the main port of communication for North-East India.[13] According to the 2011 Indian census, Kolkata is the seventh-most populous city in India, with a population of 45 lakh (4.5 million) residents within the city. It is a part of Kolkata Metropolitan Area (or known as Greater Kolkata) which has a population of over 1.41 crore (14.1 million) residents making it the third-most populous metropolitan area in India. In 2021, the Kolkata metropolitan area crossed 1.5 crore (15 million) registered voters. The Port of Kolkata is India's oldest operating port and its sole major riverine port. Kolkata is regarded as the cultural capital of India. Kolkata is the second largest Bengali-speaking city after Dhaka. It has the highest number of nobel laureates among all cities in India.[1][14]

In the late 17th century, the three villages that predated Calcutta were ruled by the Nawab of Bengal under Mughal suzerainty. After the Nawab granted the East India Company a trading licence in 1690,[15] the area was developed by the Company into an increasingly fortified trading post known as Fort William. Nawab Siraj ud-Daulah occupied Calcutta in 1756, and the East India Company retook it the following year. In 1793 the East India Company was strong enough to abolish native rule, and assumed full sovereignty of the region. Under company rule and later under the British Raj, Calcutta served as the capital of British-held territories in India until 1911. In that year, after assessing its geographical location, combined with growing nationalism in Bengal (Calcutta became the centre for the Indian independence movement), the British moved the capital to the relatively more centrally located New Delhi.

Following independence in 1947, Kolkata, which was once the premier centre of Indian commerce, culture, and politics, suffered many decades of political violence and economic stagnation before it rebounded.[16] The city was also flooded with Hindu refugees from East Bengal (present-day Bangladesh) in the decades following the 1947 partition of India, transforming its landscape and shaping its politics.[17][18] A demographically diverse global city, the culture of Kolkata features idiosyncrasies that include distinctively close-knit neighbourhoods (paras) and freestyle conversations (adda). Kolkata is home to eastern India's film industry, known as Tollywood, and cultural institutions, such as the Academy of Fine Arts, the Victoria Memorial, the Asiatic Society, the Indian Museum, and the National Library of India. Among scientific institutions, Kolkata hosts the Agri Horticultural Society of India, the Geological Survey of India, the Botanical Survey of India, the Calcutta Mathematical Society, the Indian Science Congress Association, the Zoological Survey of India, the Institution of Engineers, the Anthropological Survey of India and the Indian Public Health Association. Four Nobel laureates and two Nobel Memorial Prize winners are associated with the city.[19] Though home to major cricketing venues and franchises, Kolkata stands out in India for being the country's centre of association football and also having strong culture in other sports less widespread elsewhere. Hence, Kolkata is also known as 'the city of joy'.[20]

Etymology[edit]

The word Kolkata (Template:Lang-bn Template:IPA-bn) derives from Kôlikata (Template:Lang-bn Template:IPA-bn), the Bengali language name of one of three villages that predated the arrival of the British, the other two villages were Sutanuti and Govindapur.[21]

There are several explanations for the etymology of this name:

Although the city's name has always been pronounced Kolkata or Kôlikata in Bengali, the anglicised form Calcutta was the official name until 2001, when it was changed to Kolkata in order to match Bengali pronunciation.[25]

History[edit]

Fort William, headquarters of the British East India Company

British colonial rule[edit]

Arms of the city of Calcutta, c. 1914

The discovery and archaeological study of Chandraketugarh, Template:Cvt north of Kolkata, provide evidence that the region in which the city stands has been inhabited for over two millennia.[26][27] Kolkata's recorded history began in 1690 with the arrival of the English East India Company, which was consolidating its trade business in Bengal. Job Charnock, an administrator who worked for the company, was formerly credited as the founder of the city;[28] In response to a public petition,[29] the Calcutta High Court ruled in 2003 that the city does not have a founder.[30] The area occupied by the present-day city encompassed three villages: Kalikata, Gobindapur and Sutanuti. Kalikata was a fishing village; Sutanuti was a riverside weavers' village. They were part of an estate belonging to the Mughal emperor; the jagirdari (a land grant bestowed by a king on his noblemen) taxation rights to the villages were held by the Sabarna Roy Choudhury family of landowners, or zamindars. These rights were transferred to the East India Company in 1698.[31]: 1

In 1712, the British completed the construction of Fort William, located on the east bank of the Hooghly River to protect their trading factory.[32] Facing frequent skirmishes with French forces, the British began to upgrade their fortifications in 1756. The Nawab of Bengal, Siraj ud-Daulah, condemned the militarisation and tax evasion by the company. His warning went unheeded, and the Nawab attacked; he captured Fort William which led to the killings of several East India company officials in the Black Hole of Calcutta.[33] A force of Company soldiers (sepoys) and British troops led by Robert Clive recaptured the city the following year.[33] Per the 1765 Treaty of Allahabad following the battle of Buxar, East India company was appointed imperial tax collector of the Mughal emperor in the province of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa, while Mughal-appointed Nawabs continued to rule the province.[34] Declared a presidency city, Calcutta became the headquarters of the East India Company by 1773.[35]

In 1793, ruling power of the Nawabs were abolished and East India company took complete control of the city and the province. In the early 19th century, the marshes surrounding the city were drained; the government area was laid out along the banks of the Hooghly River. Richard Wellesley, Governor-General of the Presidency of Fort William between 1797 and 1805, was largely responsible for the development of the city and its public architecture.[36] Throughout the late 18th and 19th century, the city was a centre of the East India Company's opium trade.[37] A census in 1837 records the population of the city proper as 229,700, of which the British residents made up only 3,138.[38] The same source says another 177,000 resided in the suburbs and neighbouring villages, making the entire population of greater Calcutta 406,700.

In 1864, a typhoon struck the city and killed about 60,000 in Kolkata.[39]

Template:Wide image By the 1850s, Calcutta had two areas: White Town, which was primarily British and centred on Chowringhee and Dalhousie Square; and Black Town, mainly Indian and centred on North Calcutta.[40] The city underwent rapid industrial growth starting in the early 1850s, especially in the textile and jute industries; this encouraged British companies to massively invest in infrastructure projects, which included telegraph connections and Howrah railway station. The coalescence of British and Indian culture resulted in the emergence of a new babu class of urbane Indians, whose members were often bureaucrats, professionals, newspaper readers, and Anglophiles; they usually belonged to upper-caste Hindu communities.[41] In the 19th century, the Bengal Renaissance brought about an increased sociocultural sophistication among city denizens. In 1883, Calcutta was host to the first national conference of the Indian National Association which was the first avowed nationalist organisation in India.[42]

Bengali billboards on Harrison Road (now Mahatma Gandhi Road) Calcutta was the largest commercial centre in British India.

The partition of Bengal in 1905 along religious lines led to mass protests, making Calcutta a less hospitable place for the British.[43][44] The capital was moved to New Delhi in 1911.[45] Calcutta continued to be a centre for revolutionary organisations associated with the Indian independence movement. The city and its port were bombed several times by the Japanese between 1942 and 1944, during World War II.[46][47] Millions starved to death during the Bengal famine of 1943 (at the same time of the war) due to a combination of military, administrative, and natural factors.[48] Demands for the creation of a Muslim state led in 1946 to an episode of communal violence that killed over 4,000.[49][50][51] The partition of India led to further clashes and a demographic shift—many Muslims left for East Pakistan (present day Bangladesh), while hundreds of thousands of Hindus fled into the city.[52]

Contemporary[edit]

During the 1960s and 1970s, severe power shortages, strikes and a violent MarxistMaoist movement by groups known as the Naxalites damaged much of the city's infrastructure, resulting in economic stagnation.[16] The Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971 led to a massive influx of thousands of refugees, many of them penniless, that strained Kolkata's infrastructure.[53] During the mid-1980s, Mumbai (then called Bombay) overtook Kolkata as India's most populous city. In 1985, Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi dubbed Kolkata a "dying city" in light of its socio-political woes.[54] In the period 1977–2011, West Bengal was governed from Kolkata by the Left Front, which was dominated by the Communist Party of India (CPM). It was the world's longest-serving democratically elected communist government, during which Kolkata was a key base for Indian communism.[55][56][57] In the 2011 West Bengal Legislative Assembly election, Left Front was defeated by the Trinamool Congress. The city's economic recovery gathered momentum after the 1990s, when India began to institute pro-market reforms. Since 2000, the information technology (IT) services sector has revitalised Kolkata's stagnant economy. The city is also experiencing marked growth in its manufacturing base.[58]

Geography[edit]

Template:Wide image Spread roughly north–south along the east bank of the Hooghly River, Kolkata sits within the lower Ganges Delta of eastern India approximately 75 km (47 mi) west of the international border with Bangladesh; the city's elevation is Template:Cvt.[59] Much of the city was originally a wetland that was reclaimed over the decades to accommodate a burgeoning population.[60] The remaining undeveloped areas, known as the East Kolkata Wetlands, were designated a "wetland of international importance" by the Ramsar Convention (1975).[61] As with most of the Indo-Gangetic Plain, the soil and water are predominantly alluvial in origin. Kolkata is located over the "Bengal basin", a pericratonic tertiary basin.[62] Bengal basin comprises three structural units: shelf or platform in the west; central hinge or shelf/slope break; and deep basinal part in the east and southeast. Kolkata is located atop the western part of the hinge zone which is about Template:Cvt wide at a depth of about Template:Cvt below the surface.[62] The shelf and hinge zones have many faults, among them some are active. Total thickness of sediment below Kolkata is nearly Template:Cvt above the crystalline basement; of these the top Template:Cvt is Quaternary, followed by Template:Cvt of Tertiary sediments, Template:Cvt trap wash of Cretaceous trap and Template:Cvt Permian-Carboniferous Gondwana rocks.[62] The quaternary sediments consist of clay, silt and several grades of sand and gravel. These sediments are sandwiched between two clay beds: the lower one at a depth of Template:Cvt; the upper one Template:Cvt in thickness.[63] According to the Bureau of Indian Standards, on a scale ranging from I to V in order of increasing susceptibility to earthquakes, the city lies inside seismic zone III.[64]

Urban structure[edit]

Template:Wide image The Kolkata metropolitan area is spread over Template:Cvt[65]: 7  and comprises 4 municipal corporations (including Kolkata Municipal Corporation), 37 local municipalities and 24 panchayat samitis, as of 2011.[65]: 7  The urban agglomeration encompassed 72 cities and 527 towns and villages, as of 2006.[66] Suburban areas in the Kolkata metropolitan area incorporate parts of the following districts: North 24 Parganas, South 24 Parganas, Howrah, Hooghly and Nadia.[67]: 15  Kolkata, which is under the jurisdiction of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC), has an area of Template:Cvt.[66] The east–west dimension of the city is comparatively narrow, stretching from the Hooghly River in the west to roughly the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass in the east—a span of Template:Cvt.[68] The north–south distance is greater, and its axis is used to section the city into North, Central, South and East Kolkata. North Kolkata is the oldest part of the city. Characterised by 19th-century architecture and narrow alleyways, it includes areas such as Jorasanko, Rajabazar, Maniktala, Ultadanga, Shyambazar, Shobhabazar, Bagbazar, Cossipore, Sinthee etc. The north suburban areas like Dum Dum, Baranagar, Belgharia, Sodepur, Khardaha, New Barrackpore, Madhyamgram, Barrackpore, Barasat etc. are also within the city of Kolkata (as a metropolitan structure).[67]: 65–66  Central Kolkata hosts the central business district. It contains B. B. D. Bagh, formerly known as Dalhousie Square, and the Esplanade on its east; Rajiv Gandhi Sarani is on its west.[69] The West Bengal Secretariat, General Post Office, Reserve Bank of India, Calcutta High Court, Lalbazar Police Headquarters and several other government and private offices are located there. Another business hub is the area south of Park Street, which comprises thoroughfares such as Jawahar Lal Nehru Road, Abanindra Nath Tagore Sarani, Dr. Martin Luther King Sarani, Dr. Upendra Nath Brahmachari Sarani, Shakespeare Sarani and Acharay Jagadish Chandra Basu Road.[70] South Kolkata developed after India gained independence in 1947; it includes upscale neighbourhoods such as Bhawanipore, Alipore, Ballygunge, Kasba, Dhakuria, Santoshpur, Garia, Golf Green, Tollygunge, New Alipore, Behala, Barisha etc. The south suburban areas like Maheshtala, Budge Budge, Rajpur Sonarpur, Baruipur etc. are also within the city of Kolkata (as a metropolitan structure).[21] The Maidan is a large open field in the heart of the city that has been called the "lungs of Kolkata"[71] and accommodates sporting events and public meetings.[72] The Victoria Memorial and Kolkata Race Course are located at the southern end of the Maidan. Among the other parks are Central Park in Bidhannagar and Millennium Park on Rajiv Gandhi Sarani, along the Hooghly River.

Two planned townships in the greater Kolkata region are Bidhannagar, also known as Salt Lake City and located north-east of the city; and Rajarhat, also called New Town and located east of Bidhannagar.[21][73] In the 2000s, Sector 5 in Bidhannagar developed into a business hub for information technology and telecommunication companies.[74][75] Both Bidhannagar and New Town are situated outside the Kolkata Municipal Corporation limits, in their own municipalities.[73]

Climate[edit]

Kolkata is subject to a tropical wet-and-dry climate that is designated Aw under the Köppen climate classification. According to a United Nations Development Programme report, its wind and cyclone zone is "very high damage risk".[64]

Temperature[edit]

The annual mean temperature is Template:Cvt; monthly mean temperatures are Template:Cvt. Summers (March–June) are hot and humid, with temperatures in the low 30s Celsius; during dry spells, maximum temperatures sometime exceed 40 °C (104 °F) in May and June.[76] Winter lasts for roughly 2 12 months, with seasonal lows dipping to Template:Cvt in December and January. May is the hottest month, with daily temperatures ranging from Template:Cvt; January, the coldest month, has temperatures varying from Template:Cvt. The highest recorded temperature is Template:Cvt, and the lowest is Template:Cvt.[76] The winter is mild and very comfortable weather pertains over the city throughout this season. Often, in April–June, the city is struck by heavy rains or dusty squalls that are followed by thunderstorms or hailstorms, bringing cooling relief from the prevailing humidity. These thunderstorms are convective in nature, and are known locally as kal bôishakhi (কালবৈশাখী), or "Nor'westers" in English.[77]

Rainfall[edit]

Rains brought by the Bay of Bengal branch of the south-west summer monsoon[78] lash Kolkata between June and September, supplying it with most of its annual rainfall of about Template:Cvt. The highest monthly rainfall total occurs in July and August. In these months often incessant rain for days brings life to a stall for the city dwellers. The city receives 2,107 hours of sunshine per year, with maximum sunlight exposure occurring in April.[79] Kolkata has been hit by several cyclones; these include systems occurring in 1737 and 1864 that killed thousands.[80][81] More recently, Cyclone Aila in 2009 and Cyclone Amphan in 2020 caused widespread damage to Kolkata by bringing catastrophic winds and torrential rainfall.

Environmental issues[edit]

Pollution is a major concern in Kolkata. As of 2008, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide annual concentration were within the national ambient air quality standards of India, but respirable suspended particulate matter levels were high, and on an increasing trend for five consecutive years, causing smog and haze.[82][83] Severe air pollution in the city has caused a rise in pollution-related respiratory ailments, such as lung cancer.[84]

Economy[edit]

Reserve Bank of India building, Kolkata

Kolkata is the commercial and financial hub of East and North-East India[67] and home to the Calcutta Stock Exchange.[85][86] It is a major commercial and military port, and is one of five cities in eastern India (alongside Bhubaneswar, Guwahati, Imphal, and Kushinagar) to have an international airport. Once India's leading city, Kolkata experienced a steady economic decline in the decades following India's independence due to steep population increases and a rise in militant trade-unionism, which included frequent strikes that were backed by left-wing parties.[58] From the 1960s to the late 1990s, several factories were closed and businesses relocated.[58] The lack of capital and resources added to the depressed state of the city's economy and gave rise to an unwelcome sobriquet: the "dying city".[87] The city's fortunes improved after the Indian economy was liberalised in the 1990s and changes in economic policy were enacted by the West Bengal state government.[58] Recent estimates of the economy of Kolkata's metropolitan area have ranged from $150 to $250 billion (PPP GDP), and have ranked it third-most productive metro area of India.[88]

At 260 m (850 ft), The 42 at Chowringhee is the tallest building in Kolkata.[89]

Flexible production has been the norm in Kolkata, which has an informal sector that employs more than 40% of the labour force.[21] One unorganised group, roadside hawkers, generated business worth INR 87.72 billion (US$ 2 billion) in 2005.[90] As of 2001, around 0.81% of the city's workforce was employed in the primary sector (agriculture, forestry, mining, etc.); 15.49% worked in the secondary sector (industrial and manufacturing); and 83.69% worked in the tertiary sector (service industries).[67]: 19  As of 2003, the majority of households in slums were engaged in occupations belonging to the informal sector; 36.5% were involved in servicing the urban middle class (as maids, drivers, etc.) and 22.2% were casual labourers.[91]: 11  About 34% of the available labour force in Kolkata slums were unemployed.[91]: 11  According to one estimate, almost a quarter of the population live on less than 27 rupees (equivalent to 45 US cents) per day.[92]

Template:Wide image Major manufacturing companies in the city are Alstom, Larsen & Toubro,[93] Fosroc,[94] Videocon.[95] As in many other Indian cities, information technology became a high-growth sector in Kolkata starting in the late 1990s; the city's IT sector grew at 70% per annum—a rate that was twice the national average.[58] The 2000s saw a surge of investments in the real estate, infrastructure, retail, and hospitality sectors; several large shopping malls and hotels were launched.[96][97][98][99][100] Companies such as ITC Limited, CESC Limited, Exide Industries, Emami, Eveready Industries India, Lux Industries, Rupa Company, Berger Paints, Birla Corporation, Britannia Industries and Purushottam Publishers[101] are headquartered in the city. Philips India, PricewaterhouseCoopers India, Tata Global Beverages, and Tata Steel have their registered office and zonal headquarters in Kolkata. Kolkata hosts the headquarters of three major public-sector banks: Allahabad Bank, UCO Bank, and the United Bank of India; and a private bank Bandhan Bank. Reserve Bank of India has its eastern zonal office in Kolkata, and India Government Mint, Kolkata is one of the four mints in India. Some of the oldest public sector companies are headquartered in the city such as the Coal India Limited, National Insurance Company, Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers, Tea Board of India, Geological Survey of India, Zoological Survey of India, Botanical Survey of India, Jute Corporation of India, National Test House, Hindustan Copper and the Ordnance Factories Board of the Indian Ministry of Defence.

Demographics[edit]

Population[edit]

Template:Historical population The demonym for residents of Kolkata are Calcuttan and Kolkatan.[102][103] According to provisional results of the 2011 national census, Kolkata district, which occupies an area of Template:Cvt, had a population of 4,486,679;[104] its population density was Template:Cvt.[104] This represents a decline of 1.88% during the decade 2001–11. The sex ratio is 899 females per 1000 males—lower than the national average.[105] The ratio is depressed by the influx of working males from surrounding rural areas, from the rest of West Bengal; these men commonly leave their families behind.[106] Kolkata's literacy rate of 87.14%[105] exceeds the national average of 74%.[107] The final population totals of census 2011 stated the population of city as 4,496,694.[4] The urban agglomeration had a population of 14,112,536 in 2011.[5]

As of 2003, about one-third of the population, or 15 lakh (1.5 million) people, lived in 3,500 unregistered squatter-occupied and 2,011 registered slums.[91]: 4 [108]: 92  The authorised slums (with access to basic services like water, latrines, trash removal by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation) can be broadly divided into two groups—bustees, in which slum dwellers have some long term tenancy agreement with the landowners; and udbastu colonies, settlements which had been leased to refugees from present-day Bangladesh by the government.[108][91]: 5  The unauthorised slums (devoid of basic services provided by the municipality) are occupied by squatters who started living on encroached lands—mainly along canals, railway lines and roads.[108]: 92 [91]: 5  According to the 2005 National Family Health Survey, around 14% of the households in Kolkata were poor, while 33% lived in slums, indicating a substantial proportion of households in slum areas were better off economically than the bottom quarter of urban households in terms of wealth status.[109]: 23  Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for founding and working with the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata—an organisation "whose primary task was to love and care for those persons nobody was prepared to look after".[110]

Bengali, the official state language, is the dominant language in Kolkata.[112] English is also used, particularly by the white-collar workforce. Hindi and Urdu are spoken by a sizeable minority.[113][114] Bengali Hindus form the majority of Kolkata's population; Marwaris, Biharis and Urdu-speaking Muslims compose large minorities.[115] Among Kolkata's smaller communities are Chinese, Tamils, Nepalis, Pathans/Afghans (locally known as Kabuliwala[116]) Odias, Telugus, Gujaratis, Anglo-Indians, Armenians, Bengali Muslims, Greeks, Tibetans, Maharashtrians, Konkanis, Malayalees, Punjabis and Parsis.[31]: 3  The number of Armenians, Greeks, Jews and other foreign-origin groups declined during the 20th century.[117] The Jewish population of Kolkata was 5,000 during World War II, but declined after Indian independence and the establishment of Israel;[118] by 2013, there were 25 Jews in the city.[119] India's sole Chinatown is in eastern Kolkata;[117] once home to 20,000 ethnic Chinese, its population dropped to around 2,000 as of 2009[117] as a result of multiple factors including repatriation and denial of Indian citizenship following the 1962 Sino-Indian War, and immigration to foreign countries for better economic opportunities.[120] The Chinese community traditionally worked in the local tanning industry and ran Chinese restaurants.[117][121]

Government and public services[edit]

Civic administration[edit]

Kolkata is administered by several government agencies. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation, or KMC, oversees and manages the civic infrastructure of the city's 16 boroughs, which together encompass 144 wards.[112] Each ward elects a councillor to the KMC. Each borough has a committee of councillors, each of whom is elected to represent a ward. By means of the borough committees, the corporation undertakes urban planning and maintains roads, government-aided schools, hospitals, and municipal markets.[125] As Kolkata's apex body, the corporation discharges its functions through the mayor-in-council, which comprises a mayor, a deputy mayor, and ten other elected members of the KMC.[126] The functions of the KMC include water supply, drainage and sewerage, sanitation, solid waste management, street lighting, and building regulation.[125]

Kolkata's administrative agencies have areas of jurisdiction that do not coincide. Listed in ascending order by area, they are: Kolkata district; the Kolkata Police area and the Kolkata Municipal Corporation area, or "Kolkata city";[127] and the Kolkata metropolitan area, which is the city's urban agglomeration. The agency overseeing the latter, the Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority, is responsible for the statutory planning and development of greater Kolkata.[128] The Kolkata Municipal Corporation was ranked first out of 21 cities for best governance and administrative practices in India in 2014. It scored 4.0 on 10 compared to the national average of 3.3.[129]

The Kolkata Port Trust, an agency of the central government, manages the city's river port. As of 2023, the All India Trinamool Congress controls the KMC; the mayor is Firhad Hakim, while the deputy mayor is Atin Ghosh.[130] The city has an apolitical titular post, that of the Sheriff of Kolkata, which presides over various city-related functions and conferences.[131]

As the seat of the Government of West Bengal, Kolkata is home to not only the offices of the local governing agencies, but also the West Bengal Legislative Assembly; the state secretariat, which is housed in the Writers' Building; and the Calcutta High Court. Most government establishments and institutions are housed in the centre of the city in B. B. D. Bagh (formerly known as Dalhousie Square). The Calcutta High Court is the oldest High Court in India. It was preceded by the Supreme Court of Judicature at Fort William which was established in 1774. The Calcutta High Court has jurisdiction over the state of West Bengal and the Union Territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Kolkata has lower courts: the Court of Small Causes and the City Civil Court decide civil matters; the Sessions Court rules in criminal cases.[132][133][134] The Kolkata Police, headed by a police commissioner, is overseen by the West Bengal Ministry of Home Affairs.[135][136] The Kolkata district elects two representatives to India's lower house, the Lok Sabha, and 11 representatives to the state legislative assembly.[137] The Kolkata police district registered 15,510 Indian Penal Code cases in 2010, the 8th-highest total in the country.[138] In 2010, the crime rate was 117.3 per 100,000, below the national rate of 187.6; it was the lowest rate among India's largest cities.[139]

Utility services[edit]

The Kolkata Municipal Corporation supplies the city with potable water that is sourced from the Hooghly River;[140] most of it is treated and purified at the Palta pumping station located in North 24 Parganas district.[141][not in citation given] Roughly 95% of the 4,000 tonnes of refuse produced daily by the city is transported to the dumping grounds in Dhapa, which is east of the town.[142][143] To promote the recycling of garbage and sewer water, agriculture is encouraged on the dumping grounds.[144] Parts of the city lack proper sewerage, leading to unsanitary methods of waste disposal.[79]

In 1856, the Bengal Government appointed George Turnbull to be the Commissioner of Drainage and Sewerage to improve the city's sewerage. Turnbull's main job was to be the Chief Engineer of the East Indian Railway Company responsible for building the first railway 541 miles (871 km) from Howrah to Varanasi (then Benares).

Electricity is supplied by the privately operated Calcutta Electric Supply Corporation, or CESC, to the city proper; the West Bengal State Electricity Board supplies it in the suburbs.[145][146] Fire services are handled by the West Bengal Fire Service, a state agency.[147] As of 2012, the city had 16 fire stations.[148]

State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited, or BSNL, as well as private enterprises, among them Vodafone Idea, Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio are the leading telephone and cell phone service providers in the city.[149]: 25–26 : 179  with Kolkata being the first city in India to have cell phone and 4G connectivity, the GSM and CDMA cellular coverage is extensive.[150][151] As of 2010, Kolkata has 7 percent of the total broadband internet consumers in India; BSNL, VSNL, Tata Indicom, Sify, Hathway, Airtel, and Jio are among the main vendors.[152][153]

Military and diplomatic establishments[edit]

The Eastern Command of the Indian Army is based in the city. Being one of India's major city and the largest city in eastern and north-eastern India, Kolkata hosts diplomatic missions of many countries such as Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Canada, People's Republic of China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, United Kingdom and United States. The U.S Consulate in Kolkata is the US Department of State's second-oldest Consulate and dates from 19 November 1792.[154] The Diplomatic representation of more than 65 Countries and International Organization is present in Kolkata as Consulate office, honorary Consulate office, Cultural Centre, Deputy High Commission and Economic section and Trade Representation office.[155]

Transport[edit]

Public transport is provided by the Kolkata Suburban Railway, the Kolkata Metro, trams, rickshaws, taxis and buses. The suburban rail network connects the city's distant suburbs.

Metro[edit]

The Kolkata Metro is the oldest rapid transit system in India.

According to a 2013 survey conducted by the International Association of Public Transport, in terms of a public transport system, Kolkata ranks among the top of the six Indian cities surveyed.[156][157] The Kolkata Metro, in operation since 1984, is the oldest underground mass transit system in India.[158] It spans the north–south length of the city. In 2020, part of the Second line was inaugurated to cover part of Salt Lake. This east–west line will connect Salt Lake with Howrah. The two lines cover a distance of Template:Cvt. As of 2020, four Metro rail lines were under construction.[159]

Rail[edit]

The Kolkata Suburban Railway is the busiest and largest commuter rail system in India.

Kolkata has five long-distance railway stations, located at Howrah (the largest railway complex in India), Sealdah, Kolkata, Shalimar and Santragachi, which connect Kolkata by rail to most cities in West Bengal and to other major cities in India.[160] The city serves as the headquarters of three railway zones out of eighteen of the Indian Railways regional divisions—the Kolkata Metro Railways, Eastern Railway and the South-Eastern Railway.[161] Kolkata has rail and road connectivity with Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.[162][163][164]

The yellow taxi remains a favourite mode of transportation despite the foray of rideshare companies in the transport market.

Bus transport and Light Rail (Tram)[edit]

Buses, which are the most commonly used mode of transport, are run by government agencies and private operators.[165] Kolkata is the only Indian city with a tram network, which was operated by the Calcutta Tramways Company. It has now renamed to West Bengal Transport Corporation.[166] The slow-moving tram services are restricted to certain areas of the city. Water-logging, caused by heavy rains during the summer monsoon, sometimes interrupt transportation networks.[167][168] Hired public conveyances include auto rickshaws, which often ply specific routes, and yellow metered taxis. Almost all of Kolkata's taxis are antiquated Hindustan Ambassadors by make; newer air-conditioned radio taxis are in service as well.[169][170] In parts of the city, cycle rickshaws and hand-pulled rickshaws are patronised by the public for short trips.[171]

The Kolkata Tram is the oldest operating electric tram system in Asia.
A road in Kolkata showing bus, and cars. Other modes of transport are available including taxi or cab, tram, metro, auto rikshaw, rikshaw, ferry, and water taxi.

Road[edit]

Due to its diverse and abundant public transportation, privately owned vehicles are not as common in Kolkata as in other major Indian cities.[172] The city has witnessed a steady increase in the number of registered vehicles; 2002 data showed an increase of 44% over a period of seven years.[173] As of 2004, after adjusting for population density, the city's "road space" was only 6% compared to 23% in Delhi and 17% in Mumbai.[174] The Kolkata Metro has somewhat eased traffic congestion, as has the addition of new roads and flyovers. Agencies operating long-distance bus services include the West Bengal Transport Corporation and various private operators. The city's main bus terminals are located at Esplanade and Babughat.[175] The Kolkata–Delhi and Kolkata–Chennai prongs of the Golden Quadrilateral, and National Highway 12 start from the city.[176]

At present, Kolkata has two expressways, but they are not considered to be as separate dedicated expressways in the national level, as both are parts of the National Highway 16 (NH-16). They are Belghoria and Kona expressways. In the coming years, Kolkata will get dedicated expressways and will be connected directly with many major metropolises and cities of India, also internationally, to Nepal. They are as follows:

Air[edit]

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, located in Dum Dum, about Template:Cvt north-east of the city centre, operates domestic and international flights. In 2013, the airport was upgraded to handle increased air traffic.[179][180]

Water[edit]

Khidirpore Dock of Kolkata Port Trust

The Port of Kolkata, established in 1870, is India's oldest and the only major river port.[181] The Kolkata Port Trust manages docks in Kolkata and Haldia.[182] The port hosts passenger services to Port Blair, capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands; freighter service to ports throughout India and around the world is operated by the Shipping Corporation of India.[181][183] Ferry services connect Kolkata with its twin city of Howrah, located across the Hooghly River.[184][185]

Healthcare[edit]

As of 2011, the healthcare system in Kolkata consists of 48 government hospitals, mostly under the Department of Health & Family Welfare, Government of West Bengal, and 366 private medical establishments;[186] these establishments provide the city with 27,687 hospital beds.[186] For every 10,000 people in the city, there are 61.7 hospital beds,[187] which is higher than the national average of 9 hospital beds per 10,000.[188] Ten medical and dental colleges are located in the Kolkata metropolitan area which act as tertiary referral hospitals in the state.[189][190] The Calcutta Medical College, founded in 1835, was the first institution in Asia to teach modern medicine.[191] However, These facilities are inadequate to meet the healthcare needs of the city.[192][193][194] More than 78% in Kolkata prefer the private medical sector over the public medical sector,[109]: 109  due to the overburdening of the public health sector, the lack of a nearby facility, and excessive waiting times at government facilities.[109]: 61 

According to the Indian 2005 National Family Health Survey, only a small proportion of Kolkata households were covered under any health scheme or health insurance.[109]: 41  The total fertility rate in Kolkata was 1.4, the lowest among the eight cities surveyed.[109]: 45  In Kolkata, 77% of the married women used contraceptives, which was the highest among the cities surveyed, but use of modern contraceptive methods was the lowest (46%).[109]: 47  The infant mortality rate in Kolkata was 41 per 1,000 live births, and the mortality rate for children under five was 49 per 1,000 live births.[109]: 48

Among the surveyed cities, Kolkata stood second (5%) for children who had not had any vaccinations under the Universal Immunization Programme as of 2005.[109]: 48  Kolkata ranked second with access to an anganwadi centre under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) programme for 57% of the children between 0 and 71 months.[109]: 51  The proportion of malnourished, anaemic and underweight children in Kolkata was less in comparison to other surveyed cities.[109]: 54–55 

About 18% of the men and 30% of the women in Kolkata are obese—the majority of them belonging to the non-poor strata of society.[109]: 105  In 2005, Kolkata had the highest percentage (55%) among the surveyed cities of anaemic women, while 20% of the men in Kolkata were anaemic.[109]: 56–57  Diseases like diabetes, asthma, goitre and other thyroid disorders were found in large numbers of people.[109]: 57–59  Tropical diseases like malaria, dengue and chikungunya are prevalent in Kolkata, though their incidence is decreasing.[195][196] Kolkata is one of the districts in India with a high number of people with AIDS; it has been designated a district prone to high risk.[197][198] As of 2014, because of higher air pollution, the life expectancy of a person born in the city is four years fewer than in the suburbs.[199]

Education[edit]

Indian Institute of Management Calcutta

Kolkata's schools are run by the state government or private organisations, many of which are religious. Bengali and English are the primary languages of instruction; Urdu and Hindi are also used, particularly in central Kolkata.[200][201] Schools in Kolkata follow the "10+2+3" plan. After completing their secondary education, students typically enroll in schools that have a higher secondary facility and are affiliated with the West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education, the ICSE, or the CBSE.[200] They usually choose a focus on liberal arts, business, or science. Vocational programs are also available.[200] Some Kolkata schools, for example South Point School, La Martiniere Calcutta, Calcutta Boys' School, St. James' School (Kolkata), St. Xavier's Collegiate School and Loreto House, have been ranked amongst the best schools in the country.[202]

Culture[edit]

Victoria Memorial at night

Kolkata is known for its literary, artistic and revolutionary heritage; as the former capital of India, it was the birthplace of modern Indian literary and artistic thought.[216] Kolkata has been called the "City of Furious, Creative Energy"[217] as well as the "cultural [or literary] capital of India".[218][219] The presence of paras, which are neighbourhoods that possess a strong sense of community, is characteristic of the city.[220] Typically, each para has its own community club and on occasion, a playing field.[220] Residents engage in addas, or leisurely chats, that often take the form of freestyle intellectual conversation.[221][222] The city has a tradition of political graffiti depicting everything from outrageous slander to witty banter and limericks, caricatures and propaganda.[223][224]

Kolkata has many buildings adorned with Indo-Islamic and Indo-Saracenic architectural motifs. Several well-maintained major buildings from the colonial period have been declared "heritage structures";[225] others are in various stages of decay.[226][227] Established in 1814 as the nation's oldest museum, the Indian Museum houses large collections that showcase Indian natural history and Indian art.[228] Marble Palace is a classic example of a European mansion that was built in the city. The Victoria Memorial, a place of interest in Kolkata, has a museum documenting the city's history. The National Library of India is the leading public library in the country while Science City is the largest science centre in the Indian subcontinent.[229]
