One of Country's ISO certified stations! however, one of the worst in terms of cleanliness. Tracks are so dirty. There is filth lying everywhere in and around the stations (on rail tracks). Platforms are generally kept clean, but one should be aware of pickpockets and hawkers unnecessarily harassing passengers.
For RFs, Better not to stand at the doors when you train approaches/departs..because tracks are so dirty that flies/insects enter your coach, creating discomfort amongst passengers.(posting from my own experience)
