|How to reach
How to reach the venue: ISI, Kolkata
The Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata campus lies six kilometers North of the Shyambazar five-point crossing. An important
landmark is Dunlop Bridge, which is 500 metres north of ISI campus.The cars coming from the airport take the elevated Belghoria
expressway from Jessore road, get out near Dunlop Bridge at Dakshineswar. Alternatively, they come towards Dunlop Bridge via Nager Bazar and Chiria More. If you are coming from the downtown area or one of the railway stations, you will have to drive past Shyambazar and Chiria More. As you approach Dunlop Bridge, the boundary wall of the ISI campus will be visible on your left. The residential campus is at the Bus Stop called Bon Hooghly and the office campus is at the Bus Stop called ISI or Statistical. The Bus Stop further to the Statistical Bus Stop is Dunlop Bridge.
Taxi: If you are coming from the airport or one of the railway stations, it is better to hire a taxi from the prepaid taxi booth. The prepaid taxi fare is marginally higher than normal (approximately Rs. 130-150 from the airport, Rs. 130 from Howrah station, and Rs. 110 from Sealdah station) but it is a surer and safer mode of transport. While hiring a prepaid taxi, mention Dunlop Bridge as your destination.
Meter information : The blue-bordered yellow taxis of Kolkata run on meter. There are also few red colored taxis which run on LPG fuel.
However, the final fare has to be converted from the amount shown on the meter. The taxi driver should carry a conversion chart, but here is a quick conversion formula. Initial Reading: Rs. 10.00 . Total Fare: Rs. 2 x meter reading + Rs. 2.
In case of any trouble, you should contact Traffic Control Room at
9830010000 or 9830811111.
ISI Kolkata campus:
A map of ISI Kolkata campus is available at this link. The institute Guest House is marked 13 on the map and the ISEC guest house is
located in the Neils Bohr Hall, marked 4 on the map. The lectures will be held in the lecture hall in the ground floor of A. N. Kolmogorov
Bhavan, marked 28 on the map. A. N. Kolmogorov Bhavan can be reached through the Pedestrian Subway, marked 15 on the map and then passing through the portico under R. A. Fisher Bhavan, marked 22 on the map.
Each room in the Guest House has a phone connection with its four digit number written on it. The complete number can be obtained by putting 2575 before them. You may receive calls directly on that phone. To call the phone from outside Calcutta, but within India, put
033 before those eight digits. To call from abroad, put 009133 before the eight digits.
Unfortunately, you cannot make direct external phone calls from the guest house. However, there are many public call phone booths in the cross road across the B. T. Road, as you come out through 205, B. T. Road gate from the Guest House campus.Alternatively, you can buy prepaid India Telephone Card and use them from any telephone.
