Future[edit]

Due to a rapid rise in rail transport in Hyderabad, the Railway Board (India) had decided of a fourth railway terminal in addition to the existing ones at Secunderabad Railway Station, Kachiguda Railway Station and Hyderabad Railway Station.The board would decide after the proposals of Secunderabad and Hyderabad divisions.The Hyderabad division proposed the Malkajgiri railway station as the fourth rail terminal in Hyderabad.Even if the Railway Board does not consider the proposal of the Hyderabad division's bid for Malkajgiri as the fourth terminal, passengers of the division can benefit since the existing station at Malkajgiri will soon be transformed into a passenger terminal at an estimated cost of Rs.1 crore.[4] Besides proposing the Malkajgiri station for the fourth terminal, the board is determined to transform the station into a passenger terminal at an estimated cost of Rs. 1 crore.[4] Once the station transforms into a terminus, trains bound to Delhi from Bangalore and Mumbai could pass through the station without touching Secunderabad.
