The station is situated at Rajapur, Taldi in South 24 Parganas district in the Indian State of West Bengal.[1][2]

History[edit]

The 45 km long line from Calcutta to Port Canning via Sonarpur, constructed in 1862 by the Calcutta and South-Eastern Railway, was the first railway track on the east bank of the Hooghly River. It ran from the then Beliaghata station (presently Sealdah South station) to Canning on the Matla River.[3][4] Sonarpur to Canning railway track including Taldi railway station was electrified in 1965-66[5]
