Non- Interlocking work of Sealdah (Main) station is going on in connection with yard remodeling and upgradation of Signaling system to enhance passenger facility and safety.

Sealdah Main Station is the heartbeat of the Eastern Railway. This station, nestled strategically to serve a vast population, stands tall as one of the busiest staion of Sealdah Division in the Eastern Railway, pulsating with the rhythm of connectivity and progress. Sealdah station has a footfall of 1.5 millions commuters daily. Right from its inception in 1862, Station is serving the nation in general and city of Kolkata and areas around it in particular. The Sub urban train services of Sealdah touches every section of the city. Also number of Mail & Express trains connects the major cities of the India.

Today marks a historic milestone for Sealdah Main station as we transfer train operations through the cutting-edge new Electronic Interlocking (EI) system with dual Visual Display Unit (VDU) with 449 routes, replacing the old RRI system. This state-of-the-art technology heralds a new era of efficiency and safety, with the capacity to control 65 point machine, 27 Main Signals, 77 Track circuits, MSDAC, Datalogger, Fire Alarm System, facilitating flawless interlocked movements.

Length of platform nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 has been increased to 12-coach EMU rakes from 09 coaches which will enhance passenger carrying capacity by 25%.
