The Kavi Subhash Metro Station, formerly New Garia Metro Station, is the southern terminal station of the North-South corridor of Kolkata Metro in Kolkata, India. It is named after poet Subhash Mukhopadhyay.[1] This station was opened to public on the auspicious day of Mahalaya in 2010.

This metro station is at ground level and located adjacent to New Garia Railway station on the Sealdah-Sonarpur section. The station will eventually become the southernmost terminal of the Jai Hind - Kavi Subhash corridor of the Kolkata Metro.[2]

The easiest & shortest kolkata metro rail stretch is kavi Subhash to Satyajit Ray film institute, which is less than 2km.

Even this simple Metro extension is purposely undone since 2011.

New garia is a very backward, mosquito infested place, a deadly dengue prone area.

No progress in the New Garia locality is foreseen without immediate Metro rail connectivity with E.M bypass
