The works of the platform, station building and signal laying are complete and once the  railway lines are on track, the station will commence operations.

It was in the year 2012 that the then Railway Minister KH Muniappa  had sought a feasibility report regarding the proposal to construct a railway station and works had commenced two years ago. Even the works of an approach road to the station are presently underway.

Meanwhile, a few local residents have already appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to name the new railway station  as Pejawar Railway Station as it is coming up close to the  original Pejawar Mutt  at Kenjaru and  the place is also generally known as Pejawar.
