We all know, Kolkata is so famous for for it's food but now, this initiative makes it even famous for the innovations undertaken for the safety standards. It is a giant leap for the Kolkataans to select a bicycle as a means of communication . To encourage this wonderful initiative, the government and the police authorities have tied up to provide cycle lanes, where no other form of transportation would be allowed to move.
This is a great move as the crowd in the buses, have already overlooked the concept of social distancing. This is a much safer and private mode of communication. It can also be a great cardio session for you all.

Still the official release is yet to come!
