King of Cooch Behar
Birth of "Cooch Behar State Transport" todays North Bengal State Transport Corporation.
His highness Lt.Col.Jaggadipendra Narayan,inaugurated 'Cooch Behar State Transport' before council house, under the statue of King Nripendra Narayan. On the north bank of Sagar die .It was just after world war- ll, Maharaja was in full military uniform.Among others L.M Boxi I.A.S. Mr. H.M. Alexander Engg., Kali Banerjee Engg, were present. Maharaja flagged off two busses one to Tufangunj another towards Pundi Bari. This modest beginning, rose like almost a massive banyan tree in socioeconomic and cultural life of North Bengal, especially in Cooch Behar, Jalpaiguri, Malda and both Dinajpur. Not mere a transport organization, transporting people; but deeply rooted and interwoven with the life of its commuters.
