Apart from this, there is a double-height entrance lobby with a spacious ticketing facility along with an art gallery that has an LED wall display lounge, a baby feeding room and also air-conditioned multipurpose waiting hall to seat about 40 people.

It is also a Divyang friendly railway station as it has a special ticket booking counter, ramps, lifts and parking space.
