Chronological Background:

The 11th Regional Chapter of ITPI named as Kharagpur Regional Chapter was established in early 1984 at I.I.T., Kharagpur to look into the professional matters of town planners and promote town-planning education in the eastern region. Number of members was 15 at that time. Later on in 1997 Kharagpur Regional Chapter was renamed as West Bengal Regional Chapter. The Chapter has 208 members as on today (January 2009).

During 1985, Govt. of West Bengal allotted a 412.38 sq. m. (6.0 Katha) of land at IB-190, Sector-III, Salt Lake, which came under possession of the Chapter during 1991.
Construction of the chapter building was started on November 1993.


West Bengal Regional Chapter was the 2nd in the Country to inaugurate the completion of its first phase of construction on 10th April 1998. The final phase of construction of the building was completed in the year 2006.

2nd Plot of the Chapter:
In course of time it was felt that the plot at Salt Lake would be inadequate to meet up the space requirement considering the future activity of the Chapter. Subsequently, with the assistance of HQ a plot of land measuring 10.0 kattah i.e. 7200 sq.m. was procured in the year 1998 in the East Kolkata Township near Eastern Metropolitan Bye-pass abutting 30.0 m. wide Rashbehari Connector. The license agreement was executed between KMDA & ITPI in the year 2000 after full payment for the cost of land to KMDA. The boundary wall of the plot was also constructed in the year 2001. But till date the Chapter could not start any construction work on the said plot due to shortage of fund. In such a situation, the chapter has decided to go for a joint venture development on the plot. In this connection the chapter is in search of a suitable organization that may come forward for the joint venture in lieu of equivalent built-up space or fund support.
