Problem
The administration and Kolkata Police has been constantly interfering in tram services in Kolkata and has barred the tram operators from serving certain routes and increasing frequency of trams, by blaming them for causing traffic jams in streets, but is it so?

Solution
Does traffic jams always occurs on those roads where trams run, or does a traffic jam always has at least a tram involved? Traffic is a serious menace in the city, and most of the time, it happens due to increased number of autos and e-rickshaws. But traffic police continues to blame the trams and stop them from running whenever they get a chance. Such is the condition, that people no more wait for trams, as it is uncertain when the next one will come, and the once heavy profit making Calcutta Tramways is now running in losses. Tram drives and conductors are worried about the future of the trams, because if this treatment by police continues, one day it may stop running altogether Tram is regarded as a heritage in the city, and also, it can carry about 200 people, more than any bus can carry. If used properly, it can contribute to decongesting the city, and as we all know it is environmentally friendly, and does not cause any pollution like the fuel guzzling buses, and thus help a polluted city like Kolkata to substantially cut down in emmissions.
