Location Information:

Kolkata, formerly Calcutta is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. It is located in eastern India on the east bank of the River Hooghly. The Kolkata metropolitan area including suburbs has a population exceeding 15 million, making it India's third-largest metropolitan area and urban agglomeration as well as the world's 8th largest agglomeration.

Kolkata served as the capital of India during the British Raj until 1912. Once the center of modern education, industry, science, culture and politics in India, since 1954, Kolkata has witnessed intense political violence, clashes and economic stagnation. Since the year 2000, economic rejuvenation has spurred on the city's growth. Like other metropolitan cities in India, Kolkata continues to struggle with the problems of urbanisation: poverty, pollution and traffic congestion.

Kolkata is noted for its revolutionary history, ranging from the Indian struggle for independence to the leftist and trade union movements.
