The IMD said that the system is moving north, north-east at a speed of 14 kmph and is currently in east-central Bay of Bengal.
The IMD said the storm may cross Bangladesh on May 30.
"Based on present conditions we can say that the cyclone storm is likely to transform into a severe cyclonic storm and pass closer to the eastern coast of Bangladesh, near Chittagong. It will not make landfall in India."
The IMD has issued warnings to fishermen in Kolkata to not venture out into the open sea as wind conditions were dangerous.
The IMD also said that weather conditions around Andaman Island are also likely to be bad.
