Redeveloped in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, the station has been designed as a green building with modern world class amenities that also takes into account ease of mobility for differently abled people. The station is also developed as a hub for integrated multi-modal transport.

This will be the second such redeveloped station after Modi was re-elected in 2019. The earlier one was in Gandhinagar. The world-class railway station with airport-like facilities has been revamped at a cost of Rs 450 crore.
