Work from home (WFH) is the new normal in times of the Covid-19 pandemic. Keeping that in mind, the Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (Hidco) has set up neighbourhood work cocoons in three places in New Town, which will be launched soon after the elections, for people to work in a convenient working environment, a few steps from their houses.

The air conditioned set ups will have WiFi facilities, work tables, café corner and a library with sitting arrangements for about 18 people with proper social distancing following the Covid safety protocols. People using the cocoons will be charged Rs 20 per hour. It was during the lockdown last year that Hidco came up with the idea to set up these work cocoons with the help of architect Abin Chaudhuri and his team. “The whole idea is to reach to ones’ workplace quickly, maintaining social distance without the need of using public transport by walking or cycling,” said a Hidco official.
The spots where the cocoons are being set up are opposite Nazrul Tirtha, New Town bus stand in Action Area I and another in Action Area II.
