Train often arrives ahead of time and is held up for 30-45 minutes on outskirts of NZM station for want of platform. If train halts at Okhla, you may alight and take the Metro (Violet Line) to Nehru Place/ Central Secretariat for onward journey, and save a good hour or so.

Yes completely agree, this is always made to halt at Okhla. Seen this everytime I travel in this train.Have even seen people deboarding at okhla who are well aware of this fact.

the nearest metro station to Okhla is buses are available from just outside the okhla station from the Sabzi Mandi (vegetable market) side...nehru place station is in the market and conveyance is a problem it is on the other side.

Dear Sir,
You should realize neither Okhla or Tuglakabad are official halts for this train. You say its better to deboard at Tuglakabad it seems as if the train always halts there.
I've qualified my tip with an 'if', you too can do the same.
I've travelled quite a few times by this train, and have seen it halt at Okhla almost every time,
but not at Tuglakabad. If it does halt, its ok to get down there too, as the metro station is right near the Rly station.
Again, Okhla is closer to Nehru Place/Lajpat than Tuglakabad and its easier to get buses/autos etc from Okhla or Nehru Place than Tuglakabad.
