There is a Paid AC Lounge at PF 3(just beside the subway). The rate of stay is Rs 20 for 1 hour per person. If you have an UP train to catch(going to BBS, MAS, Mumbai etc), you can stay in this lounge for sometime. You can also stay here if you are catching a down train but be careful as down trains usually leaves from PF 7-8. This lounge is spacious and the toilets and bathrooms are also quite clean.

Escalator facilities are available at the PF 1 exit. You can use this to move your luggage or in general to move to the platform of your choice if you are unable to use the stairs. Also, elevator is also present just beside the escalator but that is for aged and sick people.

Most small vendors present in KGP tend to charge more than MRP for food items and water bottles. This has happened to me not once but twice. The first time I bought a packet of chips which was labelled as Rs 10 MRP(standard price). However, the vendor charged Rs 15 for it. Since I was in a hurry to catch my train, I did not notice it only to find out about it later in the train while I was about to throw the packet in the dustbin.
The second time it happened when I went to buy a bottle of water. The MRP is Rs 15/litre(standard railway rate and also printed behind) but the vendor asked for Rs 20. When
I asked him why he was overcharging, he started making excuses about it which were really stupid.
My advice would be to carefully buy any food items in this station. Remember that not all vendors overcharge and so, if you find some vendor overcharging, don't panic as you will always find one nearby who is willing to sell at the right price. Be patient and always have some extra time at hand so that you don't get conned.
