Despite heavy passenger demand and traffic there is no luxury train on the Bina - Katni Rail Route so this station does not halt any Rajdhani Express, any Shatabadi Express or a Jan Shatabadi Express due to lack of railway ministry attention on the Katni - Bina route. Hence it lacks connectivity with important places such as all the major cities in South India including Trivendrum, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Mysore, Coimbatore, Cochin, Kolhapur and Tirupati. It also lacks direct connectivity with North and East India despite of heavy passenger traffic for cities like Dehradun, Gorakhpur, Kanpur and Guwahati.
