DJL- Dodjala is the nearest railway station to Bangalore International Airport (BIAL). 10 kms from the Airport including the Airport Access road's length. 9 kms if Approach road is used to the access road.
Attached is a marking of DJL & DHL in the map...check it out...

Thank you very much sir. I would assume they are talking about the Distance from railway station to access road....which would be around 6 kms.. Only advantage with DHL is it is a full fledged station where as DJL is just a halt... Since there are no express trains on this route as of now, all trains halt at both the stations.
If we are not using the access road to cut down toll, but use Country roads, we can cut down the distance to 10kms & 8 kms respectivly to DHL & DJL.

Also that the airport is called as Devanahalli airport,, Most of the people conclude that the Devanahalli RS would be the closest to Devanahalli airport.. Its just a common human error....
