Shell hurdle in pedestrian pathway

Dumping green coconut shells near busy roads is a common practice among vendors. During summer, heaps of shells can be found at vital road intersections, obstructing pedestrian movement. Commuters, too, face an uphill task while alighting or boarding a vehicle. This is a usual sight on the western side of College Street, Mahatma Gandhi Road and a corner of Central Avenue. As a number of educational institutions, offices and shops are located in these areas, the Calcutta Municipal Corporation workers must clear the garbage on a regular basis. The police can also make arrangements to shift the vendors away from the crossings.

Screen facilities

The foodstuff sold at Elite cinema is of poor quality but very expensive. During intervals, the main gate remains closed and viewers are forced to buy the food sold inside as a result. The hall can draw a lot of viewers if the proprietor improves the amenities.
