The Calcutta Port Trust (CPT) will conduct a survey of the bathing ghats along Strand Road and prepare a report for their facelift by January 15.
“The renovation scheme of the stretch from Babughat to Cossipore will depend on the availability of funds,” CPT chairman Anup Kumar Chanda said. Presently, the CPT maintains 19 ghats, while the Calcutta Municipal Corporation has been entrusted with 22 ghats.
