The major highlight of the station is the new airport-like air-conditioned executive lounge. The lounge offers a separate sitting area, dining area, pantry area and attached washrooms. The station now also has a separate first-class waiting hall with attached modern cubical washrooms for women.

The existing second class waiting hall has been upgraded from 30-40 passengers to 70-80 passengers. The pay and use toilets have also been upgraded to modern cubical toilets.

The station now has the provision to include six commercial outlets in the station and hence increase the platform surface area to ensure hassle-free passenger movement. The station now has 20 water booths in total with separate low height booths.
