May 10 2015 (16:33)   LTT/Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (5 PFs)

I have seen many people complaining about the LTT station. I personally feel that it is a very good station but only if you know some things about LTT.
1) If you stay far away from LTT, then please book MERU cab or any other cab online. Never take a cab/auto from the cabs/autos waiting at the stations, they demand ridiculously high fares for even the shortest distances. You can altenately go outside the station inside Tilaknagar where you may get a cab/auto which charges normal fare.
2) If your train reaches LTT
...
more...
at odd time(in case the train is late) stay in the dormitory rather than waiting in the station premises as there are a number of thiefs and they mostly target passengers travelling alone.(Checkout time of dormitory is 8am)
3) Always reach 1hr before the departure of your train to the station especially if you don't know much about the station or if you are first time traveller from this station.
4) The station is well connected to Domestic and International airports and Navi Mumbai by Santacruz-Chembur Link Road(SCLR). Also connected to Navi Mumbai by Harbour Line.
5) Nearest Suburban station is Tilaknagar and if you hav to go to this station please go to the end of the platform it is near from there ascompared to the new building.
6) One good thing is that a lot of people go to Tilaknagar station after the arrival of a train so no problems evan if you arrive at 11pm or 12am.
7) If you have to go to Central suburbs like Vikroli, Bhandup or even Kurla, get down at Thane/Kalyan and get a suburban train from there.

Now all the approach roads to LTT as well as Tilaknagar are in a good shape.
All thanks to Rail Minister coming to LTT for inauguration of LTT - Tatanagar Antyodaya, or else the roads would have never been repaired.

Benjoe Rail Restaurant on PF 1 has a Pure Veg Section. They have super good breakfast items. Puri, Dosa, Neer Dosa, Utappam, Chapati, Idly, Vada, Mangalore bun, etc.. Food is reasonably priced and tastes well. Attached are the pictures.
Its better to have food in the station than outside the station.

Retiring Rooms for Ladies and Gents one each ? शयनगृह means retiring room ?
In fact Indian Language is lacking certain words which are originated only in West.
"Retiring" means 'निवृति" : now whether you retire from job, or from day work... has to have specified defined words.... Retired from services means "सेवा निवृत"
now if retiring room is applied hindi meaning it
...
more...
becomes "निवृतालय" and not शयनगृह"
गृह means home... and not Room
How funny Is Rigid Translation as done Officially by Official Languages Dept of India :)

Re# 2208531-2            Tags   Past Edits
It is definately funny, but officials have to consider using a word which would convey the proper meaning of the facility being provided. In this case, शयनगृह was more appropriate word to use as Retiring rooms are meant for taking rest/sleeping.
Washrooms are sometimes referred to as Restrooms in English, that does not mean one has to literally take a rest there :P
