  1. The extention from taratala to majerhat should be done at the earliest so that passengers and office goers to BBD Bag can available circular railway.Moreover frequency of trains of circulars railway need to be increased. Combined ticket should be issued for both metro and open line thereby telescopic benefit should be given to the users.

  2. At least an extension to Majherhat is required as soon as possible because many passengers from Joka, Thakurpukur and Behala would avail the Majherhat railway station.
