About Us
All India Radio Siliguri station and studio is located on 2 Mile, Sevoke Road which is about 7 kms from the New Jalpaiguri railway station; almost 18 km from the Bagdogra Airport and 4 kilometers from the Tengzing Norgay interstate bus terminus and Siliguri Junction railway station. 
Siliguri is geographically situated at 23 ° 43 N latitude and 88 ° 26 E longitude. Siliguri is situated in the place known as Siliguri Corridor otherwise named as the Chicken’s Neck, the name given to a thin strip of connection between India’s other states to the states in the North Eastern region. In the whole of Northeast of India, Siliguri is the biggest city. Also, the city serves as the point of transit to go into the nearby countries such as Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. Due to this reason, Siliguri is considered as an important centre for trade in the state of West Bengal and is also called the Gateway of the Northeast. If the commercial route between India and China begins with the opening of the Nathu La Pass, undoubtedly Siliguri’s multifaceted importance would grow by leaps and bounds. Its strategic geographical location, delightful mountain ranges, snowy small mountainous waterfalls, tea plantations, forest wilderness and wild animals have made Siliguri not only a tourist destination but also a growing trading hub of Bengal.
