Navoday Association for Promotion of Indian Heritage – a NGO, formed in 1996 had opened up an old age home “ANANDAASHRAM” at Gobindapur on 7th May 2006.
Only ground floor of the Old Age Home Anandaashram (with future provision of 3 floors) was constructed and was set up with assistance from ITC Ladies Social Welfare Society.
Now, due to rising demand of requirement of rooms, existing number of rooms at Gobindapur is falling short. Thus the Governing Body has decided to start construction of 1st Floor over the existing ground floor.
Moreover, to provide more space for those who need, it also has been decided by the Governing Body to open up another centre providing facility from 1st September 2012 for 4 persons in twin sharing basis at the heart of the city Kolkata and at the same time adjacent to Rabindra Sarovar (Lake). It is in first floor of premises no. 26, S.R.Das Road, Kolkata – 700 026.
The rooms have spacious attached balcony overviewing greeneries and furnished with Geyser, Split Air Conditioner, TV, Intercom, Inverter in addition to Bed, Almirah, Dressing Table, Side Tables.
The kitchen is equipped with all modern amenities like Gas, Aquaguard, Microwave oven, refrigerator, toaster etc.

This area is well connected by City main roads, Metro, Bus, Tram, Local Trains and other means of conveyance. All markets and other amenities are very nearby.
