Joka, a bustling town in Thakurpukur Mahestala CD Block in South-West Kolkata, has a fast growing real estate. It is popular because it is home to one of the leading management institutes and has several residential options for home buyers interested in the area.
Joka is now under the Kolkata Municipal Corporation and thus, the civic and infrastructure issues of the area are gradually getting sorted. “Joka is a fast evolving area in Kolkata with a lot of housing stock coming up. It is not far from Central Kolkata and will be getting Metro connectivity by next year. Check the physical and social infrastructure before investing in a developing area,” advised Subodh Kumar, a broker in the area.
Answering a query on the prospects of Joka, Magicbricks expert said on the Forum “Joka offers ample housing options owing to comparatively low property value over other regions. Moreover, the upcoming metro in the city, which will start running by next year, is expected to boost property prices in the region.”
Joka is well connected with other parts of Kolkata through the 4-lane Diamond Harbour Road and the 4-lane James Long Sarani. Joka-BBG Bagh Metro network constructions are in full swing and expected to be operational by 2018.
