Aspiring to be a smart city, New Town Kolkata is the iconic face of urban Bengal. There are economic hubs to generate dynamism and employment, recreational and cultural hubs to entertain and engage the people, education and health hubs to attract students and professionals - all within a smart plug and play infrastructure environment that is a best in its class. Innovation and imaginativeness drives New Town, Rajarhat. Sculptures like 'Mangal Ghots', Vivek Tirtha, Nazrul Tirtha; iconic buildings like Mothers Wax Museum and green spaces referring to 'Eco Park'; adorn the Rajarhat that never ceases to surprise.

New Town is a carbon city; it has already been recognised as a Solar City by the Ministry of Non-Conventional and Renewable Energy. Together, New Town IT hub and Sector 5 Salt Lake constitute the epicentre of IT activities in Eastern India. Ecospace, DLF-I, DLF-II, Unitech and TCS are functioning with great zeal. Wipro, Infosys, ITC Infotech and many other centres are also likely to come up shortly. Further the catalyst for changing the skyline of Rajarhat is Kolkata Metro. There are five proposed Metro links the Joka-BBD Bag, New Garia to Airport, Dum Dum to Barasat, Dum Dum to Barrackpore and between Rajarhat and Ramrajatala. The expansion between the main city with suburbs and the airport has unveiled new corridors of growth and real estate sector.
