The new terminal at Kolkata airport is massive


It took me 8 minutes to leisurely walk from one end to the other end in the domestic departure area.

Multiple security check boots. Bar checked. Fountain drinking water checked. Lots of natural light checked. Comfortable seating checked. Snack bars Yes. Authentic India chai- No!



The security hold area offers a great view of the tarmac, planes taking off.


Work still on going


I have seen this in movies only before

I was hoping see a 787 Dreamliner parked but only got a quick glimpse of one taking off.

The restrooms in BIAL smells better though.

The flight information display switched to Bengali (I believe) for a considerable length of time which is annoying.

Overall I really like it.

Fun(d) transfer with #IMPS #24×7 #ICICIBANK

I have never used IMPS – Immediate Payment Service because I thought the only way to do it was by mobile phone number and MMID. Today I saw it can be done with just the recipient’s  Account Number & IFSC as well. I did a test transfer from my ICICI Bank a/c to another  bank a/c of mine from the mobile app without adding the payee before hand. I do not find similar option on Net Banking though.

Why would you want to use IMPS instead of NEFT? Because funds can be transferred 24×7 whereas NEFT is restricted to NEFT hours only. Besides for a one time transfer, going through the payee registration for NEFT is a time consuming process. I even found out I can use IMPS for the already registered payees. How cool!

You can do IMPS transfer via iMobile App, Net Banking or by dialing *525# from your registered mobile number. Read all about IMPS with ICICI Bank here.

Another useful service from ICICI Bank is  SMS recharge for Prepaid Mobile, DTH and Broadband. I have been using the mobile recharge for months.
