It is to announce that New Delhi Railway Station will never be shutdown,” said the Ministry of Railways in its statement.

Some trains may be diverted from New Delhi railway station: Govt

In order to facilitate redevelopment, some trains may be diverted from New Delhi railway station, which will be notified in advance. “It may be noted that when a railway station undergoes redevelopment, a few trains are diverted/regulated as per requirement. Information about such diversions/regulations of trains is notified well in advance,” said the ministry.

The redevelopment is part of a broader initiative by the Railway Ministry, which began in 2013, to renovate 1,300 railway stations across the country. The New Delhi Railway Station, a critical hub that accommodates approximately 600,000 passengers daily, is slated for a phased redevelopment to minimise disruption.
