Specially the localities of Ward No.4 are in knee-deep water,resulting commuters life difficult. The school and college going students were spotted battling with the logged water and downpour.  The road connecting Tangla Forest Beat Office to MB Road has been engulfed by knee-deep water. Interestingly though local residents have sought the help of TTC authorities yet it has been accused that they have turned a blind eyes to it. In some lanes TTC authorities had just layed think layers of pebbles and sand.

The school and college students along with daily commuters are the worst sufferer.

In Ward No.3 the localities namely Babupara,Subaspalli,Palpara are in pathetic condition the sticky mud and logging water has made people's life hell bounding them to choose alternative routes. The construction of Hospital Road to inter-locking brick road the foundation stone for which was laid by EM Jagadish Sarkar month's back has yet not started. As per sources every ward of the town are liable to get twenty trailers of pebbles but contrary to it hardly three-four trailers of pebbles were distributed in lanes of each wards.
