Durgapur is home to the Durgapur Steel Plant, which is one of the integrated steel plants of Steel Authority of India Limited. Many other industries like Alloy Steels Plant of S.A.I.L. and Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (C.M.E.R.I.), a C.S.I.R. laboratory, are also located here. Allied ICD Services Limited, four power plants - Durgapur Projects Limited (D.P.L.), Durgapur Thermal Power Station, Damodar Valley Corporation & N.S.P.C.L. and The National Institute of Technology, are some other meritorious institutions found here.

It took 4.5 hours to reach kolkata. Heavy Traffic cant b an excuse. So next time please keep this in your mind before ensuring arrival timing to customer..
The bus was excessively late on reaching its destination. and Service Ticket ID: RB-2232016-415024 not yet solved
Overall highly satisfied with the punctuality both departure and arrival. Only short suggestion, it would have been better if a short break of 15 minutes is given.
Bus was good but time punctuality is bad.
