The 64 files containing 12,744 pages were declassified in the presence of his family members who have been demanding that information on Bose, kept confidential till now, should be made public.
The files were displayed in glass cascades in Kolkata Police Museum here and they would be made accessible to the public from Monday, City Police Commissioner Surajit Kar Purakayastha said.
Of the 64 files, 55 were with Kolkata Police while another nine were with the state police.
Purakayastha handed over a DVD containing the files in digitised format to the family members of Netaji.
Chief Minister Banerjee, who visited the police museum, tweeted, "Today is a historic day. Our government has made all Netaji files public. People have a right to know about the brave son of India."
Later, she said, "We made a beginning. The people should know the truth. Let the central government also declassify the files (on Netaji). Let good sense prevail on all of us. You cannot suppress the truth. Let truth come out.

"In 70 years, the mystery has not been solved. We did not know what happened (to Netaji). It is unfortunate. How long you can keep it under secrecy. You read the files in details," she said.
Welcoming the declassification of the 64 files by the state government, Chandra Bose, Netaji's grandnephew said, "It is a correct step. Now it is the duty of the central government to declassify 130 files it has with it."
