5th platform is not yet commissioned. Hence it should be only 4.

So as and when it gets commissioned, the pf which is currently 3 & 4...will that become 4 & 5 ?? Initially of course passengers will take some time to understand the new changes .
Also currrently in PGT i have observed that only 2 & 3 are frequently used and during evenings 4 also. Trains coming from CBE towards SRR never use 3 or 4. Likewise trains coming from SRR towards CBE never use 1 or 2 . Some fixed pattern it seems.

No idea, whether renumbering will happen or whether new will be called as 5.
-Current Pattern is PF 2 for SRR and PF 3 for CBE. This remain fixed except for Nilambur Passenger and ERS MEMU which will be using only 4 in most of the cases.
-For any overtakes or if PF is in use by other train or maintenance going in track, then PF1 for SRR side and PF 4 for CBE side.
overtakes, the train arriving first will be given 1 and other which will be overtaking is given 1. CBE side it is 4 for waiting train and 3 for overtaking train.
- PF 2 and 3 are main lines while PF 1 and 4 are loop lines. Hence train can enter and exist at better speed.
- PGT follows this pattern and they don't mix up with PF allocation. Change for 2 to 1 and 3 to 4 happens in last few minutes, hence this shift never create issue for passenger, since they just need to switch side.
New PF will be used mostly for POY trains..
