  1. Good plan, if implemented can do a whole lot of good for the city. I think park Circus should also be connected to the metro with the existing line and/or with line 3. Also parallel to GT road in howrah the metro should run (eg.howrah stn to dakshineshwar). If transport in kolkata is in disarray in howrah its in ruins. Something needs to be done there too.
    By the way getting land may well prove to be herculean task specially in Bengal.Lets hope for the best though.
