Most of the amenities are present on platform 1 where Secunderabad bound trains come for a halt (originating trains from Vikarabad like Palnadu, SC Passenger halt and commence from platform 3 normally).
Waiting room is present near main entrance and ample sitting space is available in platform 1.
For refreshments, a Vijaya dairy parlour is there which sells milk based items and there is a food vending stall which serves hot breakfast items like idly - vada. Also, bread - omlette and egg fried rice is prepared fresh and served which as

Tirunelveli's origin temple, from where the Town and District got the name as Nellai, The Nellaiappar Temple (Lord Shiva) is located about 2 kms from the Railway station towards the Town. Regular buses available from Nellai Junction bus stand. the Temple has good interiors and beautiful sculptures and architecture which is worth visiting. Lord Nellaippar is the main deity in form of Shiva Linga while Goddess Ganthimathi, incarnation of Devi Parvathi, is the presiding Goddess.

Nov 19 (18:25)   BDTS/Bandra Terminus (7 PFs)
The Journey matters more than the Destination

Here are some of the tips based on my couple of visits to BDTS:

1. Connectivity with suburban local stations:
The biggest issue with this station is the connectivity with any mumbai suburban local stations. This issue is now resolved to some extent as a new bridge has been commissioned from Khar Road station which takes you directly from Khar Road to Bandra
Terminus. So instead of using Bandra suburban station from a local train, you should deboard at Khar Road. If you don't prefer to walk, take an auto from either Khar Road or Bandra.

2. Bridge/Subway Accessibility:
The foot over bridge at Dadar end of the station is designed by someone who was drunk. It covers only PF 6 and 7, ends at at a bizzare point without covering all the platforms and without a straight exit. The passengers have to walk additional distances to reach the exit. There is a subway which connects all the platforms as well as the main exit and you should prefer it anytime. It is at the Borivali side of the platform.

3. Waiting hall and seating area:
The waiting hall, retiring rooms are situated at the main entrance at the Borivali end of PF 1. There is a common seating area with ample chairs at the same main entrance area.

4. Buggy Service:
Three buggy vehicles are available for service at the station. They are parked near the main entrance near the seating area near PF 1.. They arrive at the platform just when the train arrives. Don't panic/crawl with the co-passengers if they are full. They come back and forth multiple times.
Charges: 40rs/passenger with a free allowance of an 8kg bag, 20rs/luggage . Contact details in the attached image.

4. App based taxis: App based taxis like Ola and Uber serve the station well and you should use the main exit near PF 1 as the pickup point for a hassle free pickup/drop. Autorickshaw and Black Yellow Taxis charge a bomb and hence avoid them.

5. Cleanliness: During my second visit in 2022, this station was surprisingly clean and very well maintained.

6. Porters: Porters are available at BDTS and you can find them mostly near the AC coaches during the train arrivals and at the main exit during the rest of the time.

Overall: This is a satellite station for MMCT just like LTT is for CSMT. Avoid it and use BVI if possible. If BVI is far off, use the buggy services at this station and book an app based taxi for a smoother commute.
