The Corporate Face
Nicco Parks and Resorts Limited (NPRL), the company behind Eastern India’s first theme amusement park was incorporated on March 17th 1989 as a joint sector company with Nicco Corporation (a well-diversified business conglomerate of Rs. 5000 million) and the Government of West Bengal represented by West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (WBIDC) and West Bengal Tourism Development Corporation Limited (WBTDC). Securities of the company are listed with the stock exchanges and the company has been paying dividend in each consecutive years since 1994 when it floated public issues and got listed in Mumbai & Kolkata stock exchanges.
NPRL was incorporated with the prime objective of providing educative entertainment and wholesome recreation for the entire family while simultaneously promoting tourism.
