Why Should you Live in Behala?

A metropolitan city with an old-school soul, Kolkata has always been welcoming, loving and sprinkled with nostalgia for the colonial times. With increasing urbanisation, parts of Kolkata may have started to look like other metropolitan cities of our country but you can never miss out on the soul that resides in every citizen and every street of Kolkata. Behala is one of the oldest residential areas situated in the South Western side of the city. Property in Behala is always on high demand due to the reputation of the area as well as the high connectivity to the rest of the city.

Unlike neighbouring Alipore, Behala though not considered a posh locality but it is a respectable residential neighbourhood with decades of history. Many celebrities reside in this area.

Here are a few reasons why Behala makes for a great place to live:

  • Connectivity: Behala is located towards the South of the city making it a desirable area for residence and close to the popular landmarks of the city. Transportation is also a bonus in this area with the availability of the metro. Cabs, buses and auto rickshaws are easily accessible and the roads are wide and spacious, compared to the tiny lanes of the North. The Bailey Bridge, Behala Chowrasta, Durgapur Bridge, Khidderpore flyover and Diamond Harbour Road connect  Behala to all other parts of the city.
  • Availability of Resources: Considering that Behala is a residential area, it is surrounded by all possible resources. Bazaars like Chowrasta Market & Bakultala Market, local shops, cinema houses like Asoka Cinema and Ajanta Cinema, places of worship, etc. are present that sell everything under the sun. You wouldn’t have to ever travel far for your needs and wants. There’s even an upcoming PVR and Spencer’s in the area. 
  • Healthcare & Education: One of the most important factors while choosing a home is finding a suitable place of education and a decent health care centre nearby. There are many reputed schools like M.P.Birla Foundation School, Bidya Bharati School, Narayana School as well as Vivekananda Mission School and hospitals and health care centres like the Disha Eye Care Hospital and Narayana Memorial Hospital.
  • Developing Area: Above all, Behala is and continues to be an area that is constantly adapting and developing with new high-rise buildings, better transport, facilities and wide and spacious roads. It is also one of the areas of Kolkata that can still boast of being green and providing shade.

Behala can be a great home for you if you wish to reside in an upcoming and developing yet warm society. One of the largest properties of Behala, Greenfield City is a society of its own with 3000+ families and various modern amenities. Close to Behala Chowrasta, Greenfield City spreads across 45.69 acres with at least 74 % open space and ample greenery for you to keep in touch with nature while living in the city. It is among the largest residential societies in Kolkata. To know more about the property, visit
