I have heard that Dum Dum is a good upcoming locality to invest in Kolkata. Is it true?
Haha Akash Dum Dum is not an upcoming locality per se. It is where the International Airport (Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport) is located and one of the oldest areas of the city actually. One of those North Kolkata areas where you will still find charmingly old localities and houses and people who are quite warm and friendly. Used to travel by metro and get off at Dum Dum when I was in school to meet friends. Am aware that it has changed into a swanky locality now due to its great connectivity. You get the International Airport nearby along with the Dum Dum railway station on the Sealdah line and also the Dum Dum metro railway station linking to the rest of the city in the same precinct. Public transportation facilities are also great and you can connect to Belghoria Expressway, VIP Road, Ultadanga, Lake Town, Baguihati, Kestopur, Salt Lake and Rajarhat New Town quite easily. If you access the EM Bypass then you can drive down towards the Eastern and Southern parts of the city. And Dum Dum now has some amazing projects like Emami City and all. Social infrastructure has developed rapidly, i.e. restaurants, malls, schools, colleges, hospitals and what not.
