Yes I am searching for any such place in Kolkata, but just a piece of un solicited advice; A tripod would cost you aroung 1000 rs at the shops aroung metro gully. Depending upon the period of renting you may end up paying half of this amount...
Anyways if you come to know of any such please share here.

Tripods begin at Rs 850 at Camera Exchange (years-old shop), Grand Hotel arcade.

Those are really really cheap tripods and using them with DSLR with a good lens is taking the risk of breaking your gear. A decent entry level Manfrotto tripod with a good ball head would cost you Rs 10,000.

Well, I bought mine for Rs 2500, and am using it happily with my Nikon D3000 and a 70-300 mm lens
