Please change the operator name. It is now West Bengal Transport Corporation, not Calcutta Tramways Company.

Corrected.

Route 18, 24, 24/36, 30 & 36 has now been permanently disused. Route 5, 11 & 12/15 is temporarily suspended. There are two extra routes - 24/30 & 29/30 running as limited service. Route 24/29 & 25 is running normally at present.
