'''Garia''' (Bengali (Bengali language):গড়িয়া) is a posh Article on Garia neighbourhood in south (South Kolkata) Kolkata, India. It includes the localities of New Garia, Chak Garia, Garia Park, Baghajatin, Baishnabghata-Patuli (Baishnabghata Patuli Township), Techno City (Techno City, Kolkata), Model Town (Model Town, Kolkata), Ganguly Bagan, Tentulberia, East Tentulberia, Ramgarh, Briji, Kamalgazi, Mahamayatala, Boral, Sreenagar, Nayabad, Panchasayar, Balia and certain parts of New Ajaynagar. It is bounded by Jadavpur Dhakuria Golpark Gariahat to the north, Bansdroni Tollygunge to the north-west, Santoshpur to the north-east, Narendrapur Sonarpur to the south and Mukundapur to the east. The southern part of the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass runs through the heart of the region. It is also represented by an important, ever-busy, and ever-crowded traffic junction from where a variety of public transports ply in different directions, making it a principal spot of south Kolkata. Garia became another refugee settlement along with Jadavpur and Tollygunge in the southern fringes of the city. Slowly, after the initial upheaval, development of the area started and it grew to become a peaceful neighbourhood. But again another change was coming to the region. With the expansion of Kolkata to the east and the south during the 90s, the area witnessed its latest change. Garia was the southern end of the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass, the next 'Chowringhee' of Kolkata. This road connected Garia to the northern parts of the city and the newly developing areas like Salt Lake City (Salt Lake City (Bidhan Nagar), Kolkata) and Rajarhat, and also to the airport thus opening the way for rapid commercialization of the area. Already home to two major bus terminus, Garia became the transport and commercial hub for the region. Brahmapur was untouched by the urban boom of Kolkata until the late 90s in spite being so close to the city. Accessibility and safety were major concerns. It was a gram panchayat initially and became part of the Jadavpur Municipality. Later it became part of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation after the merging of the Jadavpur Municipality with K.M.C. Now the locality has a Post Office and a Bank of Baroda Branch. Recently air-conditioned buses have been introduced by the WBSTC. These buses connects places like the Airport, Santragachi ( a station on the Howrah-Kharagpur railway line) and Tollygunj. The road network in south Kolkata starting from Park Circus, Ballygunge, Gariahat, Gol Park, Dhakuria, Jadavpur all the way to Garia consists mainly of Gariahat Road, Gurusaday Dutta Road, Ballygunge Circular Road, Rashbehari Avenue, and Prince Anwar Shah Road.
