State of West Bengal

Update to situation in Darjeeling please!

Hi. Just wondered if anyone would give me an update as to whats happening in Darjeeling at present. We are due to visit at the beginning of April for a couple of weeks and not sure whether to cancel everything and make new bookings elsewhere.

Thanks. I know it has been very turbulent over the past month or two but I wondered if there was any sign of it settling down. I really have to make a decision about whether or not we are going there in April.

Do be aware that in Darjeeling strikes are called quite frequently by the Gorkha JanMukti Morcha. More info at:

Owing to the ongoing stir in support of Gorkhaland, a strike may be called any time by them. More info at:

Thanks. I see that they have now called off the current bandh. However, I am aware that the situation can change quickly. I have trains booked going both north and south from Kolkata and I just have to make a decision about which ones to cancel!
