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.
Congratulation from Maharaja, on 20th
Anniversary of NBSTC
Maharaja wrote' I had the pleasure of inaugurating the Cooch Behar State Transport service in 1945...........' Nevertheless the state governments done many to its glory. Sure enough  the 2nd oldest transport,to Nizam transport (1936)\ in India, though technically it is the oldest, because Nizam acceded in 1960, Cooch Behar in 1947. Shall continue to roll it's peoples wheel with a royal touch in full speed in coming generations. Whatever odds may come to its path? Shall be rolled strip.................................
