West Bengal Housing and Infrastructure Development Corporation (WBHIDCO) will soon open a business club at New Town in Rajarhat. This is for the first time when the state government is opening a business club at an affordable price providing all facilities that are available at clubs in the city. The project has got an overwhelming response.
As New Town is growing at a fast pace, it was felt that a business club should be set up where people could go for recreation along with their family. The club is coming up close to Home Town. Cleanliness will be the USP of the club and it will prove that the government is capable enough to provide entertainment and recreation to the people.
Debashis Sen, chairman of HIDCO said the club would be opened in July. Its construction work will be completed shortly. The membership fee will be Rs 30,000 for three years. There are two swimming pools, tennis and badminton courts along with table tennis and snooker. There will be a separate place to play dart. A state of the art gymnasium and a meditation room will also be set up. Café Ekante will open its outlet at the club.
Colour of the walls and the ambience have been made in such a way that it provides a soothing effect to its guests. A member can come with his spouse and two children and enjoy the facilities.
The swimming pool has already become very popular in the area and people from nearby areas like Chinar Park have started visiting the place. In order to use the swimming pool, a person has to pay Rs 2,000 for six months.
Meanwhile, construction work of the Seven Wonders of the World at Eco Park is going on in full swing. The idea was mooted by Mamata Banerjee, who felt that tour loving Bengalis cannot go out to visit many important places particularly those that are situated abroad. So, if miniature replicas of the seven wonders are created here, it will become easier for people to witness them without travelling abroad.
In addition to business activities, New Town is coming up as a cultural hub where cultural programmes are held regularly. Apart from the residents of New Town, people from Salt Lake, Lake Town and its neighbourhood and even from Madhyamgram and Barasat are visiting these shows.
