As a result of this more and more specialized stress and sleep treatment clinics are showing their presence in different part of the city. Experts says that Kolkata is not yet matured enough to welcome the new lifestyle and work culture.


According to the medical survey report published by Assocham agency the loss of sleep is always accompanied with some other major problems such as increased absenteeism and performance deterioration.  The survey reports also reveals different concerns that are highly associated with sleep deprivation. Unsurprisingly, most doctors in Kolkata agree with this report. Doctors also warn that inadequate sleep could affect the level of performance of a young worker and this indeed leads to memory loss, irritability and anxiety.
