Even though there are 8 Pf here at KGP , but generally few selected Pf are used. But Local trains/EMU can be allotted ANY Pf , so do Confirm.
The Main entrance into the KGP station is bit Exciting. Getting to the Enquiry counter or reservation counter will be bit of a Hassle and confusing job for First timers here.
There are total TWO exits. Pf 1 side and Pf 8 side.
Basically
...
more...
Pf 8 side exit (There is NO gate kind of thing;Its just a FOB exit) is for Shared Tempo and Bus side. Whereas Pf 1 side , the shared Tempos or buses are not allowed. Only Cycle Rickshaw and Taxi (Ambassador) are available towards Pf 1.
Now there is a Building towards Pf 1 exit which has all essential Counters like Enquiry & Booking. Just right to it, there is a Underground Subway and FOB to Actually Enter to the Main Platforms. The 1st PF which will come by this FOB is The Ex-World's Longest Pf (Now 2nd Longest). This is a Island type Pf with total 4 Platforms in One Go. First is Pf 1 and Pf 3 on same side One after another. and other side is the Pf 2 and Pf 4 one after another.
Generally all the Long Journey trains coming from HWH side & Going towards TATA side are given PF 1. And the Trains going towards Balasore side are given Pf 3.
Pf 2 is used by Passenger trains terminating at KGP. Pf 4 is generally very less used but many a times is used by BBS going rajdhani express for reversal purpose due to Closeness of Crew Lobby and Running Room.
But do confirm the actual Platform from the Display boards (the announcement is done very late) and from the enquiry counter.
All the trains going towards Howrah side are given Pf 5 and Pf 6. Pf 7 and Pf 8 are least Used and Many a times remain vacant Unless there is some kind of emergency or Traffic.
Pf 5 and Pf 6 (Its a island Type Pf) have Escalator facility.
The Common Waiting room , AC class Waiting Room and Ladies Waiting Room are present on the Pf 1 and Pf 3 , but the AC waiting room generally remains Packed from Evening 7 pm to night 12 because to all the long journey trains have departure timings at this slot only.
