Saltlake Sector-5 station also privatized.

Now Bandhan Bank’s name on the station
Kolkata: The initiative to privatize many stations has already been taken by the Metro Railway. In this sequence, Bandhan Bank has got the right to publicize the entire premises of Salt Lake Sector-5 Metro Station with its name. An official of the bank gave this information. The official said that the Salt Lake Sector-5 metro station in Kolkata will now be known as “Bandhan Bank Saltlake Sector-5 Metro Station”. The bank on Wednesday said it has entered into an agreement with Kolkata Metro for branding rights for the entire Salt Lake Sector-5 station. The bank said in a statement that for the first time, the Indian Railways has given branding rights to an entire station to a private entity. “Such arrangements are seen at various metro stations in other major cities, but this is the first such agreement between Indian Railways and Kolkata city, which has a decades-old metro service,” the bank official said. Earlier, Metro Railway has given the opportunity of branding through Smart Card of Metro. Through this, along with the convenience of the promotion of companies, the metro also gets economic benefits. It is believed that similar initiatives can be taken with more stations in the coming days. Manoj Joshi, General Manager, Metro Railway said, “Metro Railway is very happy that a local organization like Bandhan Bank has joined us in this new initiative of station branding. I congratulate the bank for taking such an initiative for the first time for this city.”
