Kolkata: There’s good news for the residents of New Town and the domestic and foreign flyers who want to buy branded sweets for their near and dear ones.
The West Bengal Housing and Infrastructure Development Corporation (WBHIDCO) has planned to open a hub to sell mouth watering traditional Bengali sweets in the area.
The proposed cluster of shops set up as per the “shop in shop” concept will come up near the gate number I of Prakriti Tirtha also known as Eco Park. The hub has not yet been named and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be approached to give it a suitable name.
On the first floor, there will be an open terrace where people can sit and taste Bengali sweets and snacks and enjoy the beautiful environment surrounding Prakriti Tirtha. Best quality traditional Bengali sweets will be available in the shops along with their history.
As sweet is an integral part of Bengal’s culture which Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wants to project globally through Biswa Bangla, the centre is likely to gain popularity soon after it is inaugurated.
