Kestopur, formally known as Krishnapur, lies under Rajarhat Gopalpur (Vidhan Sabha constituency), governed by Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation[1] in North 24 Parganas district in Barasat Sadar subdivision. It lies on Kazi Nazrul Islam Sarani, more commonly known as VIP Road, which connects the city with Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. The community is made up of people of various religions from different states. Kestopur has over the years become an area of great prominence because of its proximity to areas like Salt Lake Sector V and Rajarhat. VIP Kestopur crossing was one of the busiest of the Kazi Nazrul Islam Sarani. However construction of a flyover along with subway at the crossing(the Subway was opened on 24th June 2014 and the flyover on 8th March, 2015) helped in decongesting the traffic at the junction.[2]
