The three-story modern railway station building is equipped with all modern features like lifts, escalators, food plazas, shops for puja needs, cloakrooms, child care rooms, and waiting halls. The station building will be 'accessible for all' and an 'IGBC-certified green station building'.

- Amrit Bharat Express trains: These ‘jerk-free’ trains will run between Darbhanga in Bihar and Anand Vihar in Delhi via Ayodhya, Malda Town in West Bengal, and Sir M Visvesvaraya Terminus in Bengaluru. With the help of semi-coupler technology, a unique innovation in train operations, Amrit Bharat trains offer a smooth journey across various destinations running at a maximum speed of 130 km. This technology helps join two coaches in such a way that it negates the jerk effect when the train starts and stops.
