Travel And Accomodation


The city of Kolkata (erstwhile Calcutta) is well connected by Air, Rail and Road.

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport (NSCBI) is a major international airport with flights from London, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Kathmandu. It is connected to other international airports through most major airports in India including Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, and Hyderabad. The airport is about 35kms from the IIMC campus. There are prepaid taxis available at the Airport. However it is advisable to book a taxi if your flight is arriving after 9pm at the NSCBI airport.

Kolkata is connected to the rest of India through the four inter-city railway stations of Howrah, Sealdah, Kolkata (Chitpur) and Shalimar (near Shibpur, Howrah) stations. Howrah is the largest and the oldest of the four, and dates back to 1854, while Shalimar is the newest of the four. Howrah is about 20kms, Sealdah about 18kms, Kolkata about 23kms, and Shalimar about 20kms from the Joka campus. Prepaid taxi services are available at Howrah and Sealdah stations.

The Joka campus of the institute is situated on the Diamond Harbour Road about 15kms from the heart of the city. We are connected to the city via state run bus service, privately run auto-rickshaws and the ubiquitous yellow taxis of Kolkata. There is a bus stop just outside the campus’ main entrance where both state-run bus service and private auto-rickshaws stop. The nearest bus terminus is at Thakurpukur, which is 3kms away. There is a taxi stand right outside the Institue’s main entrance, and the next taxi stand is next to the Thakurpukur bus terminus.
