Corporation Building


by Kolkatan

"A History of Development"

As Kolkata took its place as the capital of British India, infrastructural changes and reforms saw the need for a new body that could be held solely responsible for the development of Kolkata. The Calcutta Municipal Corporation (now Kolkata Municipal Corporation or KMC) was thus formed in 1976. The building with the brilliant red facade that you see today is testimony to Kolkata’s development over the years. It stands on a road called Surendranath Banerjee Road, which was so named in the honor of Surendranath Bannerjee who was responsible for introducing a number of important changes as the first minister for local self-government in Bengal. And to think Kolkata has come this far from being just a collection of villages marked by mud huts and open drains, is quite impressive! Corporation Building (KMC Building) is a landmark that is best viewed from the outside at any time of the day. It houses the office of KMC, call for office timings.
