Indian Railways is the largest rail network in the whole of Asia. India’s rail network is discussed all over the world. Even today, most of the people in all the big cities depend on rail services. The main reason for this can also be attributed to the increasing population of India. The number of passengers traveling in Indian trains is very high, which may increase further.
There are around 8500 railway stations in India. Every day crores of people travel in the trains running at these railway stations. They do not have to take separate visa for these railway stations. But today we are going to tell you about such a railway station where you will have to take visa and passport to travel by train.
Visa and passport are required to go to this railway station
You know this thing that whenever we have to travel to another country, we need a visa and a passport for that. But do you know that there is such a railway station in India where you must have passport and visa to go.
