Five of the 16 platforms at the station will be taken up in the first phase for redevelopment by running the premium trains from Platforms 6 to 16.

Many trains to run from other stations like Old Delhi, Ghaziabad

The Railways has already written to the Central PWD to widen the roads connecting these small trains to prevent traffic jam affecting the travelling passengers.
