Today Asansol is not considered as the second biggest city in West Bengal ,if we see in terms of population then we can reach to this type of a conclusion but if we see the overall development in terms of growth in the IT sector ,real estate ,hospitals ,entertainment hubs ,plazas ,industries ,business and the most important infrastructural growth then we will see that DURGAPUR is second followed by SILIGURI and then we can name Asansol ,if anyone is aware of the type of developments happening in DURGAPUR then one can see that companies like DLF,SHAPOORJI PALLONJI along with many shoppping malls are making forays into Durgapur ,new hospitals ,branded hotels ,educational institutes are coming up ,its becoming a boom town and a bussiness friendly city for all the upmarket companies ,the same story is with Siliguri but the communication and infrastructure is not so good in North Bengal

The development work carried out by ADDA for both Asansol and Durgapur,are splendid.
I am waiting for that day,when these two twin towns will become mega cities..as is the plan by ADDA.With the proposal to build an airport at Andal,that day seems not to be far away.
