Kestopur (officially, Krishnapur) is a locality in Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation of North 24 Parganas district in the Indian state of West Bengal. It is close to Kolkata and also a part of the area covered by Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA).[1]

Kestopur lies on Kazi Nazrul Islam Sarani, more commonly known as VIP Road, which connects the city with Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. The community is made up of people of various religions from different states. Kestopur has over the years become an area of great prominence because of its proximity to areas like Salt Lake Sector V and New Town. VIP Road-Kestopur crossing was one of the busiest of the Kazi Nazrul Islam Sarani. However construction of a flyover along with subway at the crossing (the subway was opened on 24 June 2014 and the flyover on 8 March 2015) help in decongesting the traffic at the junction.[2]
