I want to visit Bakreswar Thermal Plant on work trip. I would like to know more about the resident facilities in and around Bakreswar for a day or two.
Please check the accommodations of WBPDCL, which is situated just 1 km from the Thermal Plant. However, this facility is restricted for the official visitors of the Thermal plant. As you will be on a work trip, you will get accommodation here.
