I have come from reliable source due to a problem from Sukharia Gram Panchayat who does not want a resort/Guest House at Sabuj Deep. Smt Dipa Banerjee pioneer of Mandermani/Biharinath/Baranti has been facing problem from Panchayat since 2014 though she started her work. God when these politicians of Bengal be liitle conscious that Tourism can change the economic condition of that place?

Sabuj Deeep is a great tourist destination and picnic spot in Hooghly. But people visit that place for day tour only because there is no accommodation for tourist. Smt Dipa Banerjee , pioneer of Mandermani/Biharinath/Baranti has purchased a land just beside new Jetti Ghat of Sabuj Deep and is eager to start her project. But unfortunately local Panchayat was not allowing to give permission for some unknown reason. However at last local Panchayat has been agreed to allow her to start her work i.e. a moderate resort for all kind of people. So the construction can start anytime now. I have also come to know that Smt. Banerjee desires to promote the entire area from Bansberia to Kalna as a tourist circuit.For further details one may feel free to contact 8017202499/033-69547111.

Visited Sabuj Deep on January 2017 and felt that an accommodation is must for tourists in general. From site I came to know that one Resort have been constructing on the bank of the river by Smt Dipa Banerjee(8017202499) who is pioneer of Mandermani/Biharinath/Baranti. But visiting the place I came to know that the work could not be done for non-cooperation of local Panchayat. What an irony? Did our beloved "DIDI" knows this. Perhaps not and if she comes to know this hindrance from local Panchayat(obviously run by CPM), the situation could be different. However the silver lining is this that after much persuasion and waiting the work is going to be started from March/April 2017. I came to know that Smt Banerjee has planned a new tourist circuit for tourists which includes Hooghly Imambara/Bandel Church/Hanseswari-Ananta Basudev temple/ Devanandapur/Rajhat famous for Peacock/Hooghly Pandua/Sukharia/Guptipara/Kalna/Nabdwip/Mayapur along with Samudragar-Dhatrigram famous for Saree. Hope this project will start as early as possible and also urge to Government to look after that an unique initiative gets help not unnecessary hindrance.

Since November 2014 Smt Dipa Banerjee pioneer of Mandermani/Biharinath/Baranti is trying to construct a moderate Resortas also as a 'Picnic Spot on The Bank of river Ganga in her own property. But local Panchyat is hindering since then.Why? Did not they want any development in this area economically? When our respected Chief Minister is trying to give a new Look to the Sabuj Deep so that not only from our country but also foreign Tourists do visit this area. However after much persuasion local Panchyat has been agreed to allow construction in a portion of plot measuring nearly 1 Bigha. Let us hope that construction will resume from April on-wards and a portion of the newly built property may start from Puja 2017. For further inquiry one may feel free to call on 8017202499.

The construction of First accommodation(moderate resort/Picnic spot) is likely to start from April 2017 after much hindrance. If local Panchayat would help previously, the accommodation could have been operational from Puja 2015. However better late than never. For this new Accommodation/Picnic spot on the Bank of River Ganga(besides New Jetty) of Sabuj Dweep if anyone interested may feel free to contact 8017202499.

OMG, after a long battle and persuasion the construction of Sabuj Deep Tourist Point has begun. As per management there will be cottages(sagarika, Harano sur etc) as well as a Picnic spot for limited people. New Jetty of Sabuj Deep is just adjacent to the resort. I have learn that the resort will cater all sort of guests and will provide tour packages such as Bandle Church, Hooghly Pandua, Kalna, Nabadwip-Mayapur, et al. So this place will cater tourist through out the year. Moreover Resort Management decided to serve fresh fish from adjacent Ganga and fresh vegetable from field. You can visit here at the time of mango(Himsagar/Amrapali) or winter for Date juice. For further inquiry one may contact 8017202499.This property will be partially opened from Puja 2017.

Had been at Sabuj Dweep on first week of July 2017 to arrange office Picnic on December 2017. I came to know that usually Sabuj Dweep opens from middle of November for Picnic. I also came to know that a Resort+Picnic Spot is coming up just beside new jetty of Sabuj Dweep and likely to be operational from Puja 2017. I along with other colleagues visited the said place namely Sabuj Dweep Tourist Point(8017202499) and became sure that any office/Corporate Picnic can be arranged there privately. Beside there will be a Resort within budget of Middle class people.

Hope that from this Puja 2017, tourists will be able to enjoy Sabuj Dweep,near Hooghly Balagarh in a different way. As there was no accommodation here people had to return home with a heavy heart. This pollution free area, over river Ganga, has many spots to visit but had no opportunity to stay for a day or two. After much persuasion and tenacity(due to non co-operation from local Panchayat) work of SABUJ DWEEP TOURIST POINT(8017202499) is in full swing and likely to start from Puja 2017. Tourist of Kolkata will get a chance to enjoy a great week end in his new spot which was famous for day visit.
