"New Delhi Station" New Delhi Transportation Tip by Willettsworld

New Delhi Transportation: 89 reviews and 86 photos


Like most train stations in India, New Delhi Station is a hive of activity with all sorts of comings and goings. Your best approach when coming to the station is to charge your way through the traffic and people outside. If you need to make reservation, head for the stairs to the left of the main area where the departure boards are located (I think its signposted anyway) and once on the first floor, the Foreign Tourist Reservation Office is directly opposite you. Inside, its a large air-conditioned room with people serving at desks around the back and comfy sofa's and other chairs dotted around the other areas. Simply take a reservation form which should be displayed by the pillars and fill it in and then wait for one of the desk staff to serve you. Simple and easy! The station itself is fairly large but not as large as I was expecting. The two trains that I took out of New Delhi both left from platform one which is the first one you come to.
