Azimganj Junction Station has all the necessary infrastructure to run a train from any station. In Howrah division, Azimganj Junction station has the best infrastructure after Howrah station. The infrastructure in Azimganj Junction is mentioned below-

Room facility
Crew Booking Lobby
Coaching Maintenance Depots
Pit line - 3
Stabling line - 1
Watering facility

Now the question is, why is there no long-distance express train running from Azimganj Junction despite having so much infrastructure? Two express trains(13017/18 Ganadevta express and 13027/28 Kaviguru express) start and end their journey from this station. But their PM is done at Howrah jheel siding. This infrastructure at Azimganj Junction used for PM of ICF rakes of 16 passenger trains(originated at Azimganj Junction).

Azimganj Junction is one of the most important stations of Howrah Division. Four route lines-(1.KWAE-BDC-HWH; 2.NFK-MLDT-NJP-GHY; 3.NHT-RPH-BWN and 4.newly MBB-KNJ-RHA-SDAH) converge at this station. But despite all this, it seems that the railway could not use this station properly. Several long distance trains could be run from this station. As from Malda. This would have greatly reduced the dependence of the people of Nadia, Murshidabad and Birbhum districts, which are dominated by migrant workers, patients, tourists on Howrah station for traveling outside West Bengal.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
