Hazrat Nizamuddin (Delhi)

Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station (station code: NZM[1]) is a railway station located in South Delhi, India. It is under the administrative control of the Delhi Division of the Northern Railway zone of the Indian Railways. It is one of the five main stations in Delhi and is the originating and terminal station for 60 trains.[2][3] The station was named after the Sufi Saint Nizamuddin Auliya. Hazrat Nizamuddin station was upgraded to help relieve congestion at New Delhi Railway Station and is recommended for first time travellers, particularly those bound for Agra as it much quieter and easier to navigate than its larger sister. [4]

Administration[edit]

Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station is managed by Northern Railway zone of Indian Railways. It is adjacent to Delhi's two important arteries, the Ring Road and Mathura Road, and Sarai Kale Khan Inter-State Bus Terminus (ISBT).

Services[edit]

Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station connects all the major cities and was developed to ease congestion on New Delhi railway station which is located approximately 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) to the North. It originates and terminates Rajdhani Express trains going towards Bengaluru, Chennai, Secunderabad, Madgaon, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram.

Rooftop Solar[edit]

Indian Railways intends to save ₹41,000 crore in energy consumption and generate 1000 MW of energy from solar power. Out of 1000 MW to be produced under solar power; 500 MW will be produced from rooftop solar.[5] In order to meet the target Northern Railways has selected Vivaan Solar, a Gwalior based company to install 0.6 MW of rooftop solar project at the railway station in 2016. The solar power project to be set up under Public Private Partnership is to be executed under design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis. The company will also be responsible for maintaining the plant for a period of 25 years.[6]
