Discussion on Calcutta

1980 :

What is the lowest & the highest temperature in Calcutta ever recorded? Thank you.

jdox4 :
"5 degrees Celsius (41 F)"
albarilogistics :

I am based in Calcutta and want to start Container Feeder vessel service between Calcutta/Haldia and Singapore. For that purpose I want to know how can I start this service and what are the finances required. Can I start the service without any principle in Singapore.

mike1942f :
"If anyone on here can give the correct answer to this, they are losing money every moment they spend here. I doubt any of us can even define "container feeder service". You need to contact the equivalent of the Chamber of Commerce for your area on the internet."
Smofee :

How would the local water budget of Calcutta differ from that of Stockholm?

ItsFriday :
"I believe at least one consideration is the number of people. Another could be the source of the water supply, but I don't know where they got the water from. You might want to check that out."
