The Chatterjee International Center (CIC) is the name of a high-rise building located in the Indian metropolis of Kolkata. It is located on Jawaharlal Nehru Road in the Central Business District of the city. As of July 2012, it is the fifth-tallest building in Kolkata.[1]

The Chatterjee International Center is one of the oldest high-rises in Kolkata. It was completed in 1976. It is also the first twenty-floor-plus building in eastern India. Upon its completion, it was one of the tallest buildings in the country. It rises up to a height of 91 metres (299 ft) from the ground and has 24 floors. Recently, a makeover of the building has been completed. It is an official building.

In 2014, a fire broke out in the 16th floor of the building. Seven people were injured in the incident.[2]
