Why couldn't they call it Korai? What's with the Hindi/Urdu version/spelling of the word? Having said that, if the owner is not Bengali, then I suppose it is alright.
He didn't want locals to confuse it with "Koroi gach". Might have picked up the spelling from back of a Shan Kadai Gosh masala box.

Isn't the roman spelling of Bengali words always in lieu with Urdu/Sanskrit?

for example its Galpa and not Golpo, Bishwavidalay and not Bisshobiddaloy

I don't know what's the deal with roman spelling of Bengali words, I also type Bisshobiddaloy when I write in Banglish. Maybe Kolkata people use romanized words
