Welcome To The Steel City:-Jamshedpur(Tatanagar).
#History:- The Tatanagar Railway Station is more than a
century old. Sakchi was identified as the ideal
for the envisaged steel plant in December
1907. In 1910, the village Kalimati which was
near to sakchi got itself a railway station on
BNR's Howrah-Bombay route.The railways
from then on was the life-line of the steel
plant established by the Tatas. The name of
the Railway station was later changed to
Tatanagar in honour of its founder Jamsetji
Tata . Tatanagar—Rourkela section was the
second 25kV AC electrified section of the
country, the first being Burdwan-Mughalsarai
(in 1957).
The Tatanagar Railway Station was built by
famous Railway Contractor of the town, Nanji
Govindji Taunk and his son Ranchhod Nanji
Taunk of Nanji Govindji & Sons of Bistupur ,
who belonged to KGK Community, a
community noted for their contributions in
building Railway lines of India.
#Services:- Tatanagar railway junction is an important
station in the Howrah —Mumbai route, and to
other places such as New Delhi , Chennai, and
Orissa . It is the second biggest station of
South Eastern Railway in terms of passenger
footfalls per day. It falls under South
Eastern Railway Zone and Chakradharpur
division. More than a 100 trains ply from this
route at any given day. It is also a major
transit point for citizens from various parts of
the state. It is one of the busiest trunk routes
section of Eastern India mainly due to being
in the main line for passengers as well as
goods train. It currently has 6 platforms. 5
are for major trains while one (platform 1B)
is used for some passenger trains.
#Facilities:- The station is a category A station and houses
all the major facilities like Waiting rooms,
Cafeteria, Bookshop, etc. Existing facilities are
being revamped for developing it as model
station. The linking of the existing footbridge
to outside of the railway station has been
completed which before produced a huge
rush of passengers from the main gate which
was quite troublesome for the incoming
The entry of vehicles in the station premises
has been banned, it is only allowed if a
special ticket(zero value) is brought.It has
been done in order to avoid overcrowding
near the main gate. The auto-rickshaws now
have a special lane for entry and exit. The
entry and exit points now have computerized
monitoring units that check vehicles entering
and coming out of the railway station. Close
circuit television cameras have been installed
in the parking area to monitor the people as
well as vehicles. The station has also won
the award for "best maintained station of
South Eastern Railway Division for the year
The station is set to undergo massive re-
modernization seeing the increased influx of
passengers. Some of them are:
Shifting up of unreserved ticket counters
from the existing premises to the
computerized passenger reservation system
building. The unreserved counters will take
the ground floor while the reservation
counters would be shifted to first floor.
The existing parcel office at pf 1 is shifted
to be shifted to extended region of the
platform near the vehicle over bridge to
reduce congestion.
A new entrance from the burmamines end
would be made to facilitate passengers from
Sakchi, Golmuri, Telco areas. The old vehicle
over bridge would be used as a foot bridge
for entry of passengers. Ticket counters are
also to be made at that end.
Separate lanes as well as parking facilities
for public and private vehicles in order to
reduce congestion near the entrance.
The proposed second footbridge has also
been sanctioned.
The Railway Station is a major station of
South Eastern Railway's and houses a
number of non-passenger related facilities
like Loco sheds,Washing lines etc. in its
premises. A new advanced washing line is
also coming up in the complex.
Apart from this Adityapur has a goods yard
which is used by Tata Steel for parking
purpose. A proposed sick line is also going to
come up there. The station facilities(yard) are
being enhanced seeing need arising out of
the ongoing expansion of the Tata Steel plant
from 6.8 MT to 10 MT.
